This same thread exists about this topic. But it has nothing to do with modern wordpress… The linked pages do not have anything in close to the same locations. All I did was select the contact forms available in X. They are called “Creative Contact Forms.” I applied them to entirely blank content, but in every case I get the same error:
“This element cannot render because Contact Form 7 is not active”
I do have the latest version of Wordpress & it is freshly installed.
