Joca Contact


Joca Contact makes it easy to set up a contact form on your WordPress web site. Only install the plugin and then add the
shortcode [joca_contact] to any page where you want to add the contact form.

All email will automatically be sent to the email address of the WordPress Admin with the subject of the web site and
including an URL to the page where the form was submitted from. This means, no settings needed and still very easy to
use if you are administrating a big number of WordPress web sites.

Basic form check is integrated so no empty forms can be sent and visualized by background colors on the input fields.

Joca Contact is translation ready and currently available in English and Swedish.

Not tested on old WordPress versions, but we see no reason why it would not work on them so feel free to test it on any version you want.
