It's a great idea and it used to work, but now it is just not working at all with WordPress 4.9.6

I have used this plugin many times. It works great. But the designs are very dated and a design wizard would be a worthwhile improvement. I'd pay for that instead of writing a bunch of custom css.

Time steps doesn't work, and cause several css error in tempalete used, being necessary to disable the plugin to work again

Great plugin. Someone's spent a lot of time on this plugin and it shows. I found the Contact form 7 standard date picker looked a bit rubbish and didn't function as I needed it to. Many thanks!
