WordPress contact form – best option?

  • # November 22, 2011 at 11:25 am

    I have designed a fairly basic contact form in a test html page that uses some spry to activate warning if rules are not fulfilled. I want to apply this form to WP but don’t how to write the php code to activate the functionality. What would be the best option:

    1.Use the existing page and find how to apply the required php template in WP

    or

    2. Use the Contact 7 and captcha plugin and apply some styles to those.

    I would probably use either Contact Form 7 or Gravityforms. They do most of the work for you and you can expand it easily in the future

    Would others agree?

    The company I work for uses Gravity Forms but I’ve heard a lot about Contact Form 7.

    I’ve used Contact Form 7 for the longest time but have been thinking about making a switch to Gravity, just haven’t done my research yet.

    Gravity Forms is awesome. But, then again, who needs an awesome contact form – they all serve the same basic function. The premium WP theme store I’m working on comes with a contact form built-in. It just depends what you’re looking for.

    I don’t have personal experience, but I hear these are the best options: (in no particular order)

    ContactForm7
    Gravity Forms
    Wufoo
    Formidable (a user here made this and it has a free version)
