Support » Plugin: Contact Form by WPForms - Drag & Drop Form Builder for WordPress » Okay as a simple contact form but has few of the features listed.

  • Works fine as a simple contact form though installing this large plugin just for a simple contact form on a wordpress site is really overkill.

    I was disappointed that several of the features listed as included with this plugin are not actually included and are a part of the ‘Pro’ version rather than the one offered for download here on

    “This plugin is the lite version of the WPForms Pro plugin that comes with all the contact form features you will ever need including email subscription forms, multi-page contact forms, file uploads, conditional logic, payment integrations, form templates, and tons more.”

    All those features are not included in the ‘lite’ version offered for download on and you have to purchase the Pro plugin to access them. I wish wordpress would stop or at least offer a section for paid plugins as listings like this which feature ‘lite’ versions of plugins which are cut down so far as to be useless are, at best, disingenuous.

    I also didn’t like the way that it takes over the default wordpress admin screen when you are working on a form.

    Hi @chrisdoth,

    I’m sorry for any confusion over which features are in our free vs paid versions. It’s definitely not our intention to confuse anyone, and so I apologize if it felt that way. Rather, our goal is to show how a site could grow with WPForms if wanted/needed.

    However, it’s true that our free version is intended mainly for basic contact forms. We believe that Lite includes all of the features needed to create super effective contact forms, though for more advanced form types/features a paid license would most likely be needed.

    For the form builder screen, our intention here is to provide the simplest and cleanest experience. By using the full screen space, we can spread out options in much more readable ways, and generally make it easier, quicker, and hopefully even less stressful to set up a form.

    I hope these details are helpful! And if you have any questions as you work on your forms, please know we’re happy to help. We provide complimentary support to all of our Lite users in our support forum.
