Contact Form 7
One of the oldest and definitely one of the most well-known WordPress forms plugins, Contact Form 7 has been around almost as long as WordPress itself. And there’s good reason: you can do nearly everything with it.
From creating multiple contact forms on one site to making a simple contact us form, the full functionality of Contact Form 7 is simple and easy enough for most needs. However, there are many additional plugins that you can install for it that allow it to go far beyond its original use. From creating user registrations to adding multiple steps, it’s an easy-to-use, expandable plugin that’s found a home with a lot of WordPress blogs.
Contact Form 7 is free, but if you like it and enjoy using it, please consider making a donation to support its continued development.
