CF7 is a powerful plugin, I use it since many years, but I regret his unstable side: after each update, I fear bugs, I have to verify the plugin is always usable and it isn't always the case :/ For example with this last update (5.3.2 > 5.4), a message "Uploading a file fails for any reason" appears but... The submit has no error :/ So I'm looking for a better plugin or other solution... :'(

Fix your last update, dont ignore people, help them. You have 5 million users with problems from your last update and you refuse to fix it. more than 50 people complained, if you notice here, you got 7 bad reviews in February. This because you refuse to fix your update. you must fix it. I promise you if you will fix it a lot of people will remove their bad reviews. INCLUDING ME.

Even my intro won*t start with 5.4 enabled! Reverted to Version 5.3.2, which works completely flawless. What a crap. Please fix it.

I've used this plugin for many years on many sites without any problems and would always have rated it 4 or 5 stars. However version 5.4 update caused a conflict with another plugin. When I raised this problem in the support forum I was given the blunt response to contact the other plugin provider for support and the author marked the problem as resolved. Very poor support attitude to try and pass the buck and forget about it. I will now be changing to Caldera Forms on dozens of websites I manage.

Fantastic plugin! BUT, the 5.4 update has an issue when using the recaptcha integration. In its current state, using rv3, forms will not submit at all, and an error is thrown in the console. In the meantime, I recommend sticking to update 5.3 to avoid this issue until a fix is in place.
