Support » Plugins » Developer opinions – best contact form plugin

  • Hi,

    This is a broad question related to contact plugins. There are a lot of plugins out there; contact form 7, gravity forms, ninja forms, formidable, fast secure contact forms, to name a few.

    I have previously used contact form 7 fairly exclusively, and it does a good job, but the CMS UI isn’t great, and the default styling is pretty poor requiring lots of overrides.

    My question is – which do you think is the best?

    I’m looking for:

    • extensibility i.e. other plugins available to meet all kinds of situations, such as spam prevention, date pickers, third-party integration etc etc
    • unobtrusive default front-end styling
    • easy-to-use/attractive back-end UI for end-users
    • storing/exporting responses
    • flexibility with form inputs (bonus for html5 specific inputs)

    I’m aware this is very subjective, and I’ve checked the reviews and ratings, but they’re much-of-a-muchness. I’ve also googled for decent comparisons, but no real luck.

    I’m therefore particularly looking for answers from developers who have used a number of them, and who code on a daily basis (rather than site owners who can vouch for just the plugin they’re using, no-offense).
