Customizable Contact Forms? (5 posts)

    I am creating a website for my brother-in-law who is running for the local Sheriff position. I would like to add a page where visitors can volunteer to help out in the campaign or request campaign material (shirts, stickers, yard signs, ect)

    What would be the best possible solution to adding a form that allows me to put in choices to choose from such as check boxes next to different items to receive by mail or to select from different things to volunteer for?

    Thank you for any suggestions you can offer :)

    cForms can be overkill if you just want a simple easy to integrate form.

    Try some of these:

    Douglas Karr's WP Contact Form:

    Mike Cherim's Contact Form (more customizable than Doug Karr's form; a happy medium between that and cForms):

    Mike's form allows complex form building and I like the styling hooks a bit better there than in cForms. Case in point, we just developed a site that is a 501c charity organization and they've got contact forms, donate forms, a subscribe me form. All the forms on his site are running cForms, EXCEPT the subscribe me form on the front page, which is running Mike's Contact Form. Why? cForms subscribe me wouldn't allow me to style it to look like the rest of the sidebar items, but Mike's form did.

    And .. don't you just LOVE WP?! :-P
