Contact forms are a must-have for any WordPress-powered website and with plugins, you can do a lot more than just asking for name, address, and a message. Unleash the power of contact forms and find the plugin that's right for you. Using three different plugins, Jetpack ($—basic), Contact Form 7 ($—intermediate), and Gravity Forms ($$$—advanced), staff author Morten Rand-Hendriksen walks you through the process of setting up and configuring each plugin, creating advanced form fields, and receiving form submissions.

Topics include:
  • Installing and activating contact-form plugins
  • Adding a basic contact form
  • Creating advanced fields
  • Viewing and exporting form submissions
  • Receiving form submissions

Welcome

Hi I'm Morten Rand-Henderiksen, staff author at lynda.com, and I'm excited to welcome you to WordPress plug-ins contact forms. In this course, we'll use three different plug-ins to add advanced contact forms to any self-hosted WordPress site. First, we'll look at the Jetpack Contact Form plug-in and use it as a basis to understand how contact forms are added to a site. Then, we'll step it up a notch with a more advanced Contact Form seven plug-in.

And finally, we'll look at the Premium Gravity Forms plug-in which is arguably the most powerful and popular form plug-in available. A contact form is a vital part of any website, and adding one, or two, or three can make the user experience better for your visitors and lead to more business for you. Using one of these three plugins, adding contact forms is easy, and in this course, I'll show you how. So let's get cracking, with WordPress plug-ins contact forms.
