Forms are used for various of things. One example is a form for a contact page. Every website owner should know how important a contact page is for their website. That enables a website’s visitor to get in touch with the site owner (I know there is social media, but some folks still love the good old email system). The rest are for requesting a quote, signing up on a newsletter, and the list goes on.
WordPress is such a great CMS, no doubt about that. One reason is the vast number of plugins available in their respiratory. But which one should you pick for a form?
The Best Form Plugins for WordPress
In my blog post below, I will be listing and discussing the Best Form Plugins for WordPress. These are based from my experiences with each plugin, other’s experiences, based on popularity, and reviews.
So let’s list the best form plugins for WordPress.
Contact Form 7 is probably the most popular (Having over 1 million active installations) and free form available for any WordPress website. It can be downloaded directly in WordPress’ plugin respiratory. This powerful plugin can handle multiple contact forms allowing your site’s viewership to contact you directly.
Simply its the best form plugin for WordPress I’ve found so far. Does exactly what it says and in a simple manner, and works seamlessly with pages and posts. – @steven-c-wyer
Gravity Forms is a premium WordPress forms plugin, pricing ranges from $39 to $199. It has over a million downloads. It features a form builder which enables users to quickly build and design their WordPress forms.
I have an active Developer License ($199/year) of Gravity Forms which are installed and used by some of my clients’ websites which requires advanced functionality. So if you only need a simple form, then Gravity Forms may not be for you. Considering it costs $39 – $199/year, there would be other options to choose from. Although, if you need advanced functionality, then this plugin may be the best form plugin for WordPress.
Ninja Forms is a freemium plugin which has a very easy implementation of forms for WordPress. The “lite” version of this plugin can be downloaded from WordPress’ respiratory. It has limited features, and may require you to purchase a license if you’re looking for something powerful.
I am very new at building websites and found the Ninja forms and the download to Excel terrific to use. – @vltrnjd
This is a great plugin – looks good, integrates well with different apps and is easy to use. – @daniel078
Caldera Forms is a freemium plugin which can create beautiful, responsive forms with a simple drag and drop editor. This forms’ visual editor simplifies form building for your WordPress website. Anti-spam, AJAX, notification emails, and database entry tracking are enabled by default. Addon features are available for a cheap price.
Take it from me, I use Caldera forms in my websites and clients’ websites aswell! A very handy one for sure which makes it to our list of best form plugins for WordPress.
