Easy Contact is a simple, highly extensible XHTML contact form featuring spam-reduction measures, GUI customization, and shortcode-based insertion.
The Easy Contact plugin generates a basic XHTML form for collecting 'contact' emails without providing your email explicitly. And that's about it.
Yes. Sort of. This plugin has spam reduction measures. There are a couple accessible challenge questions (simple math and a challenge question you may write) as well as internal measures that ensure form data is being submitted legitimately and not from some spam robot of death.
You're insane. It's spam prevention. So less spam, yes.
Then you should consider the cform II plugin by Oliver Seidel, which does all sorts of stuff that is beyond the scope of this humble plugin.
Not at all. If you want a static contact form that is secure, simple XHTML, which you can customize using CSS based on dynamic class selectors, which won't increase page loads or require complicated CSS customizations, and doesn't have me sticking links back to myself all over the place, then this is your plugin.
Yes. If you have old database entries for the old WP Contact Form, the Easy Contact options menu will give you the option to delete those entires. Almost everyone at one point has tried that plugin. This plugin uses shortcode and stores info in different places, so you're cool.
No. I apologize as I am unable to help with modifications with any of my plugins.
Not even thanks for the plugin?
You're welcome. Enjoy.
No. The benefit of using an HTML comment to insert the form is that when the plugin is deactivated, no junk code is left visible; however, I believe that most users will employ this plugin on a contact page and, if disabling this plugin, will simply replace it with the new form plugin code. So the plugin can be twice as effecient by only looking for one thing instead of two.
Don't worry about it.
Well, any way you want to. Any Sandbox or Sandbox-based theme template should handle this form pretty well right out of the box, because it uses the same design patterns as the theme does for its comment form.
The sample CSS includes some nice features, like styles for the default response messages and error input fields. You could just add the following to your current theme's style.css file:
You may have to adjust the the URL above to locate the
econtact-basic.css file included with the plugin. But that's an easy way to see what the included style sheet does for you.
They were deleted for ever and ever and ever. Upon deactivating, this plugins deletes all its stored data from your WordPress database. Tidy? Yes. A surprise just now? Definitely.
Yes. The shortcode will, however, produce exactly the same form based on the options set in the Easy Contact options menu. But you can use the shortcode in as many places as you like.
