Contact Form Clean and Simple

A clean and simple AJAX contact form with Google reCAPTCHA, Twitter Bootstrap markup and Akismet spam filtering.

How to Use

Unless you want to change messages or add reCAPTCHA to your contact form then this plugin will work out of the box without any additional setup.

Important: Check that you have an email address set-up in your WordPress ‘Settings’->’General’ page. This is the address that the plugin will use to send the contents of the contact form.

To add the contact form to your WordPress website simply place the shortcode [cscf-contact-form] on the post or page that you wish the form to appear on.

If you have Jetpack plugin installed disable the contact form otherwise the wrong form might display.

Additional Settings

This plugin will work out of the box without any additional setup. You have the option to change the default messages that are displayed to your user and to add reCAPTCHA capabilities.

Go to the settings screen for the contact form plugin.

You will find a link to the setting screen against the entry of this plugin on the ‘Installed Plugins’ page.

Here is a list of things that you can change

  • Message: The message displayed to the user at the top of the contact form.

  • Message Sent Heading: The message heading or title displayed to the user after the message has been sent.

  • Message Sent Content: The message content or body displayed to the user after the message has been sent.

  • Use this plugin’s default stylesheet: The plugin comes with a default style sheet to make the form look nice for your user. Untick this if you want to use your theme’s stylesheet instead. The default stylesheet will simply not be linked in.

  • Use client side validation (Ajax): When ticked the contact form will be validated and submitted on the client giving your user instant feedback if they have filled the form in incorrectly. If you wish the form to be validated and submitted only to the server then untick this option.

  • Use reCAPTCHA: Tick this option if you wish your form to have a reCAPTCHA box. ReCAPTCHA helps to avoid spam bots using your form by checking that the form filler is actually a real person. To use reCAPTCHA you will need to get a some special keys from google https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create. Once you have your keys enter them into the Public key and Private key boxes

  • reCAPTCHA Public Key: Enter the public key that you obtained from here.

  • reCAPTCHA Private Key: Enter the private key that you obtained from here.

  • reCAPTCHA Theme: Here you can change the reCAPTCHA box theme so that it fits with the style of your website.

  • !NEW! Recipient Emails: The email address where you would like all messages to be sent. This will default to the email address you have specified under 'E-Mail Address' in your WordPress General Settings. If you want your mail sent to a different address then enter it here. You may enter multiple email addresses by clicking the '+' button.

  • !NEW! Confirm Email Address: Email confirmation is now optional. To force your user to re-type their email address tick 'Confirm Email Address'. It is recommended that you leave this option on. If you turn this option off your user will only have to enter their email address once, but if they enter it incorrectly you will have no way of getting back to them!

  • Email Subject: This is the email subject that will appear on all messages. If you would like to set it to something different then enter it here.

  • !NEW! Override 'From' Address: If you tick this and then fill in the 'From Address:' box then all email will be sent from the given address NOT from the email address given by the form filler.
