Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting and installing Contact Form 7, part of WordPress Plugins: Contact Forms (2014).
…The next contact-form plug in we'll take a look at is called Contact Form…7, and it's a plug in that’s been around for a very long time.…Contact Form 7 is built around a…very different principle from Jetpack Contact Form.…Rather than building the form while you're on the post or page, you create…the form first, and then insert it into the post or page of your choice.…This allows you to create one form that…you display on several different posts and pages.…Or create several different forms that you can display.…
Either on the same page or on different pages.…Contact Form 7 also allows you to place forms elsewhere.…As an example you can place a form in a sidebar or a footer widget if you like.…What unique about Contact Form 7 is that it works in a very basic level.…When you create a new form, you work with the actual…HTML output of both the form itself, and the emails it generates.…This allows for a high level of customization, but it also means you…need to know a bit of HTML to make it do what you want.…
