Bitdefender, Norto, Kaspersky all bring warnings about this plugin distributing malware. This is really a no go for any website user….

This plugin is no longer a good choice. The maintainer makes breaking changes without listening to community feedback and doesn’t care.In 5.9.6 he added a very short limit to fields length (maxlength) that broke forms on thousands of website. He didn’t listened to any feedback asking him to reverse the change, nor to add an built-in option to prevent the issue. Details are on Github (issues 1441 and 1443 of the project)

This used to be my go to contact form. However, after the most recent update it no longer works with Google Recaptcha, and forms fail to be submitted. Turning off recaptcha and it works again, but, even with Akismet installed, it’s unusable due to the number of spam submissions received.If it starts working with recaptcha again I will re-review

Used it for years but lately it doesn’t work on any site anymore. Hope they fix it but in the meantime I will have to use something else.
