Support » Plugin: Custom Contact Forms » Might be ok, but I didn't like it personally

  • Installed this mostly because of the form submission storage capability. The yellow boxes with the ads are extremely annoying since you can’t make them go away. Setting up a form is complex, but not impossible by any means (I never spent the time actually setting up and configuring a form because there were too many features missing for my client purposes).

    Things missing that I needed:

    1. A way to simply set apart the style of the required “*” separate from the field label.
    2. SPAM protection that doesn’t require the user to do anything, like specialized hidden fields, that if filled in don’t send the message.
    3. Verification that a phone number is valid, or any way to do custom field verification.
    4. Ability to send a confirmation email to the submitter of the form, with the information they submitted.
    5. Ability to customize the text of the submitted form.

    The interface is a little on the clunky side but that’s not a major concern for me if the plugin did what I needed it to do.

    It really looks like it has potential, but it also doesn’t appear that the author has time / energy / etc. to really move the plugin forward.
