If you are looking for a WordPress plugin for Contact Form that is very easy to use and works without any hassle then read on.
A while back I was looking for a Contact Form plugin for my WordPress site and after spending a considerable amount of time I found out that most of them are not simple to use and some them don’t even work! I kept looking and finally I found two plugins that are easy to use and guess what it works too! So I decided to share my experience with others in hopes that it will save a lot of people’s time who are looking for such plugin.
The two WordPress plugins that I like for Contact Form are:
1) WP Contact Form.
2) cforms II.
WP Contact Form
WP Contact Form is a drop in form for users to contact you. It can be implemented on a page or a post.
After you activate the plugin, go to the “Contact form” options page from the WordPress Settings menu to configure the options like email address to send to and stuff.
Then insert the following line in a post or page where you want the contact form to appear and wait for the magic.
See WP Contact Form in action here.
cforms II is the most customizable, flexible & powerful ajax supporting contact form plugin (& comment form)!
cforms is a highly customizable, flexible and powerful form builder plugin, covering a variety of use cases and features from attachments to multi form management, you can even have multiple forms on the same page!
After you activate the plugin, go to the ‘cformsII’ admin page from the wordpress menu and configure your form. Then insert the following line in a post or page where you want the contact form to appear.
“XYZ” is the name of the form that you configured earlier.
For backwards compatibility, the old-fashioned way is still supported: <!–cforms–> for the first form and/or <!–cformsX–> for your other forms
Via PHP function call:
Alternatively, you can specifically insert a form (into the sidebar for instance etc.) per the PHP function call insert_cform(‘XYZ’);, or alternatively insert_cform(); for the default/first form and/or insert_cform(‘X’); for any other form.
Note: “X” represents the number of the form, starting with 2, 3,4 ..and so forth.
cforms also comes with extensive help/documentation.
