I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. The plugin was taken off the WordPress repository by WordPress staff until this can be sorted out. Perhaps a new version will soon be published with clean code from version 4.0.51. In the meantime it should be advised to deactivate or uninstall the plugin. But I caution you that if you delete the plugin from the WordPress plugin settings menu, your forms stored in the database will also be deleted. If you like the plugin and want to delete it now and possibly use it again in the future you can back up your forms prior to deactivate or deleting. The ‘Backup Settings’ tool is on the Tools tab of the form settings menu. This tool can save a backup of your contact form settings. Here is how to backup: Select a form to backup: (choices are: All Forms, Form 1, Form 2, etc), then click the Backup Settings button. This will generate a file download that you save on your computer. The file will be a text file named like this: “contact-form-backup-1.txt”. That is your backup file, keep it in a safe place in case you want to restore it someday.
