Welcome

(soft swooshing vibration) (xylophone vibration) - Hi, I'm Morten Rand-Hendriksen Staff Author at lynda.com, and I'm excited to welcome you to WordPress Plugins: Contact Forms. In this course, we'll use three different plugins to add advanced contact forms to any self-hosted WordPress site. First, we'll look at the Jetpack Contact Form plugin 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 7 plugin.

And finally, we'll look at the premium Gravity Forms plugin, which is arguably the most powerful and popular form plugin 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 plugins: Contact Forms.
