Better Forms

Description

NOTE: this plugin does not add any contact form functionality, it only affects the looks of form elements already created on your site, for instance by a specialized contact forms plugin like Gravity Forms.

WordPress Better Forms is a lightweight free WordPress plugin that improves the visual impact and aesthetics of forms and form elements on your site.

All forms elements will have a much improved standardized look and feel across all browsers. This will overall make the forms look more professional and cleaner. Form elements are the pieces combined to create forms on your site.

The new visual look will apply to all form elements including: input, textarea, select boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, regular buttons and submit buttons.

You might also want to check out our other free plugins, the WordPress Shortcodes plugin and the WordPress Social Media plugin. You can also find them here on the WordPress registry.

NOTE: some themes might use highly customized form elements which might end up looking odd when this plugin is enabled. You can use the Extra Styles entry field to override the styles of the plugin for those specific theme elements.
