Reviews

Excellent, but only 1 form allowed, what a shame

Finally found a form plug-in that I could style (WYSIWYG) with my own colors, and that uses ReCaptcha. I was excited! But it only allows one form! Now I’m disappointed. I’d like a Contact form, and a Subscribe to Newsletter form. dammit.

Muy bueno

Perfecto para lo que necesito. Muy bueno y permite colocar los campos en el idioma que quieras.

the best contact form plugin

This is the best contact form plugin for WordPress. Clean design, super easy customization, easy navigation, a lot of unique features, that no other forms offer. Checked around four contact form plugins and this is definitely a winner.
The best part is the customer support. Had a theme compatibility issue and they fixed it withing the day. Prompt responses and very friendly support.
Highly recommend!

What the F**K!

I was desperately looking for a *nice*, *working* and *easily customizable* contact form plugin.. wandering from Contact form7, Best web form, Fast Secure form, and other similar overrated shits.. I was almost out of luck and hope until I found this one.

It blew my expectation level for a nicer plugin. GIVE IT A TRY!!!

THANK YOU GUYS FOR CREATING THIS PLUGIN!!!!!!!

Best for ease of use

I’m writing a book about WordPress for the non-techie, and this is the best contact form I’ve found with an easy configuration screen and a full set of features. The default settings are also right, except that you’ll want to use the little gear on the Captcha field to change it to use reCAPTCHA, once you’ve entered your keys.
