This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Simple Contact Form Revisited Widget


A simple, yet elegant email contact form plugin that installs as a widget. The contact form widget is using jQuery for validation. In addition, the widget makes it difficult for email bots to harvest your email address by encrypting it before rendering the HTML form. This sidebar widget is particularly useful when you want to allow your visitors to contact you without forcing them to navigate away from the current page.

In addition to the widget, the plugin also installs contact form short code that can be used in pages, posts and text widgets. The short code generates a contact form that functions just like the form in the widget.

Please note:
Although I try my best to release a bug-free code, one or two may slip through. It would be so cool and I would really appreciate it if you would report any bugs to me first at, before reporting the plugin to be broken. I am quick to respond.
