What a relief to have found a plugin that works seamless first time within five minutes of activation. It is so easy to use and really awesome. If there is anything that is free that works seamlessly then this is one of those plugins that deserve a donation. Thanks very much i once again have faith in WordPress. Please continue with your awesomeness, you are a blessing to many.

This is very simple but very effective forms solution! I like it very much!

I really don't understand why so many 1 star reviews. The form has so many features that have to be paid for in other forms. Yes, it's not as easy to use as others, but it's still one of the lightest and always working forms for wordpress.

I had a bit of frustration in the beginning, mostly because of my newness in the field, but I was able to add my flair to the contact form.

Once the plugin was updated to 5.4.2 I started having issues with the recaptcha v3. All the forms are being flagged as spam. I've already submitted a ticket but the author stopped responding. I jumped on a thread that had the same issue and the plugin author stopped responding as well. Other than that the plugin generally works well. Just make sure you don't have an issue because their support is very poor.
