FormGimp is a form builder we’ve been using for a decade. It provides all the basic form building functionality you need, with the option to expand functionality quickly with custom form rendering, post submission processing, and email templates.

At a glance:

  • Form Captcha / reCaptcha
  • Build forms quickly, drag and drop field order
  • Insert forms into posts using a shortcode
  • Store submissions to the database
  • Email Confirmation and Alert messages


  1. Upload formgimp to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the FormGimp plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the shortcode [formgimp form=contact] into a post to get started


Is FormGimp amazing?

It’s a useful tool for basic form management. If you need it to sing and dance then look elsewhere.

Is FormGimp free?

Yes, and we plan to keep it that way. This package uses a common FormGimp core that we also use with other wrappers.
