Trying to find a WordPress plugin that is suited for your needs can be a bit of a hassle sometimes. The other day I was looking for a good contact form plugin and I came across so many that were either out of date or not what I needed. I figured there are other people out there that might be having some of the same issues so that’s why I put together this list of the 10 best contact form plugins that I could find.

    Thank you I wasnoticing the same thing. Lots of outdated or overblown solutions to what should be a simple thing. I don’t understand why this is not part of WP itself – doesn’t every site need a contact form.

    Yea, WP should really think about putting a contact form in the core….. but until then we shall all use plugins!!

    I personally prefer Contact Form 7 since it’s so easy to install and get started with it. Just by simple activating the plugin you will have a fully functional contact form, without any hassle.

    It would be much more helpful to see an image of each actual form, rather than the site’s marketing page for that form.

    Don’t you think?

    This post by Greg is intended to help visitors find a few good contact plugins rather than an in depth look at what each contact form offers. Good idea though for future posts like this, thanks!

    Been trying out all the above plugins and will write up a more detailed analysis shortly.

    A first result I’m happy to share (top2):

    “Gravity Forms” as suggested above looks like the ‘latest’ one – best UI feel.

    “cforms” best one of the above in terms of flexibility and options, it beats all of the above hands down.

    Hi,

    Great list, thanks for putting it together.

    Don’t suppose you know of any drop down contact form plug ins? I’m looking for something a little more discrete.

    Thanks,

    Contact Form 7 doesn’t support a ‘thank you’ response page because the developer doesn’t deem them necessary (usability 101, dude). There is a hack but it isn’t reliable. Look elsewhere.

    Great post. I have been stumbling in the dark the last few days trying to find a decent forms plugin. Cforms seems quite popular, but I am having some problems with file uploads. I am going to see what Dagon (the fish god) has to offer.

    I’ve used contact form 7 for everything thus far, but haven’t seen anything that’s really blown me out of the water with ease of use and functionality. I think there’s definitely room for improvement with these types of plugins.

    Nice round up of what’s out there.

    I currently use cformsII on two websites, but I’ve found two significant weaknesses. First, I cannot auto upgrade it like the other plugins. Second, every time I upgrade it, I have to re-edit the CSS manually to adjust the space around checkboxes and the location of the submit button. As such, I’m looking into another option. Contact Forms 7 seems to get many high reviews.

    M’kay… just thought that I might point out that it’s ABSOLUTELY USELESS TO US to provide a screenshot of the form’s download page. Are you serious? Now I’m supposed to install all these just so I know what they look like?

    Looks like you have forgotted to include WATS from http://www.ticket-system.net

    This one allows to submit forms with unlimited numbers of input custom fields. Submission can also be performed by email. Last but not least, everything is tracked in DB and easily queryable through frontend…

    le css des plugin presentés ne permet pas de modifier facilement cette ergonomie … sauf modifier le php !

    I’ve tested most of forms and quizes plugins on different websites depending on the needs but in the end gravity forms worked best. Is so easy to adapt it and you’ll end up using it for more than simple forms.

    Thanks for the list. I’ve used Gravity Forms and it works fine but man, it’s so resource hog and absolutely not for newbie. Last week I found a new contact form plugin it’s called FormBerry ( http://www.formberry.com ) this one is pretty cool as it loads fast on my shared server plus the features are wickedly packed with advanced features. Hope this helps.

    Another WordPress contact form builder plugin that can do lot of things and probably better than gravity forms IMHO is FormBerry ( http://www.formberry.com ) this contact form is a beast. they’ve included digital signature, google map, google analytics, nonces logic and more. It also supports leading autoresponders via API OAuth authentication and API key integration.
