I’m excited to present Contact Form 7’s official logo!
This elegant, minimalistic logo was designed by Cheung Vong, an artist, designer, developer, and long-time user of Contact Form 7. For more than ten years since its beginning, Contact Form 7 has had no official logo. Now I can say proudly, “This is our logo!” Thank you for your great work, Cheung!
What’s the mountain?
The mountain seen in the icon is Mount Fuji. Because I have used Hokusai’s old print art as a temporary logo for many years, and users are familiar with the image, I asked the designer to continue using Mount Fuji as a motif in the new logo.
While it is not a vulnerability of WordPress, or its plugins, because there must be so many users of our products who are at risk of these vulnerabilities, and the damage from it could be huge, I think I should write an article here to alert you of the issue.
Contact Form 7 protects your forms from spammers with several different spam protection modules such as Akismet, reCAPTCHA, and Comment blacklist. These modules help a lot, but how can you know which module has blocked a submitted message and why the module has blocked it?
The “on_sent_ok” and its sibling setting “on_submit” are deprecated and scheduled to be abolished by the end of 2017. It’s not that using those settings is unsafe, but it’s possible that enabling them will increase risk in case there are vulnerabilities in this plugin or in other components of your site. It’s time to replace them with a safer alternative.
In the Messages tab in a contact form editor screen, you can edit messages that Contact Form 7 displays in different situations. In the messages, you can only use plain text; do not use HTML tags and entities.
Allowing HTML in a message can be a security risk; Contact Form 7 4.4 and later forcibly strip HTML when displaying the message. Review the Messages tab to make sure that you don’t have any HTML there.
Contact Form 7 4.4 is scheduled to be released next month. I’ll check the status of translations just before the release, and if there are languages that are 100% translated at the time, I’ll remove the corresponding language (.mo) files from the plugin package so that the translations on translate.wordpress.org are used preferentially.
Just another contact form plugin for WordPress. Simple but flexible.
