No Website or blog especially an e-commerce site is complete without providing a way for customers to contact the Website owner. Luckily, this is an easy task to accomplish. Some WordPress themes already contain a “Contact” page template. If your theme does not have one, there are a multitude of plugins that can add the functionality of contact form with only a click or two.
The main reason for having one is that if there are any legal issues, there is an easy way to get in touch with you and not going through finding your web host to get your personal data for contact. Also, let’s say a blog post is out dated and you want to notify the admin, send and email to the post can be updated. This blog post will talk about some contact plugins we stand behind.
Certain plugins you use may have a way to incorporate your autoresponder with it. I know our subscription service MailChimp does this on certain plugins. Be on the look out for this option in any plugin.
Following are three best options:
1. Fast Secure Contact Form
After installation of the Fast Secure Contact Form, in your wordpress dashboard navigate to the “settings —> FS Contact form” link to create the contact page.
After going through all the settings and I mean there are a lot, save changes, grab the shortcode. Create a new “page” and paste the shortcode in there to create a Contact Us page.
2. Contact Form 7
If you require more than a single contact form on your site, consider the Contact Form 7 plugin. It supports multiple forms, basic customization via simple markup language, CAPTCHA support, and spam filtering via Akismet.
Usage is similar to the Fast Secure Contact Form. To add a new form, create a new page (not post) and add the following shortcode tab like we did in the above plugin.
3. Cforms II
The cforms is a powerful and featured rich form plugin for WordPress. This plugin offers both convenient deployment of multiple Ajax driven contact forms throughout your blog or even on the same page. cformsII did not disappoint me and shouldn’t disappoint you. It’s a light weight plugin with not a ton of baggage. The plugin was discontinued but forked and now it is back getting improvements.
