Comment ça se fait ? vs comment cela se fait que...?

Hello, I see a kind of contradiction where it is said that Comment cela se fait que ..is elegant and yet later that it is grammatically incorrect to use it. Could you please elaborate. 

Thanks

I can't find a contradiction in the lesson, although it is hard to read and can be confusing to keep all the different forms apart, which are all so similar.

Comment ça se fait? (informal)
Comment cela se fait-il? (formal)

Comment ça se fait que.... (informal)
Comment se fait-il que... (formal)

Incorrect usage: comment cela se fait que..., comment cela se fait-il que...

Comment ça se fait ? vs comment cela se fait que...?
