Great product, but recently stopped working

By lukeatbytestoriescom on January 6, 2020

About a month ago, contact form entries stopped coming in via email and I just checked the system and it displayed "Mail sending failed! (Could not instantiate mail function.)" in the Mail Status page on 'edit.php?post_type=pf_contact' I haven't changed any settings and wasn't sure of where I could get any support from so I can keep using it. Thanks, Luke

Very good

It works fine as it does what it is supposed to.

Great, and simple way to add form functionality

This is a great little add-on to get feedback, or other sorts of forms to your Wordpress based sites.

Отличный плагин но бессовестные маркетологи

By Art X (artmoderator) on December 29, 2018

Плагин был действительно крутым, простым, готовым решением как для новичков так и для профессионалов. Очень жаль что закрылся и так жидкое пустил в души подписчикам PRO версии, неприлично врать. Обещанной PRO версии от WPForms мы так и не получили. Поддержка тупо не отвечает.

I love Pirate Forms - WP Forms Not So Much

By Lindsay Heydon on September 21, 2018

Why change a good thing? I just want a very simple form with SMTP built in. Pirate Forms was perfect. I have about 30 sites using Pirate Forms. I already changed forms from one that got sold last year and then withdrawn from the plugin repository. They say migrating is just a click of a button. Hmmm. SMTP details are not transferred over, the CSS is a mess, you (obviously) have to change the shortcodes dotted around your site, you are reminded that you should also edit your wp-config.php file to hold the SMTP password. All very time consuming for a plugin that I don't want to change. WPForms is clunky with large flashy upgrade prompts all over the place. Urgh.
