When you fire up the plugin a basic form is already configured and ready to use. All you have to do is enter your email address and add the shortcode [qcf] to your posts or pages.
There is a lot more functionality now that there was at Version 1 but the form still works right out of the box: just add your email address and it’s ready to go.
What do you get for your money?
- 12 selectable fields including name, email, telephone, dropdowns, checkboxes, dates, radio fields and range slider
- Attachments (with optional restrictions)
- Optional captcha
- Multiple forms all managed through a single dashboard
- Message display and download function
- Editable thank-you message
- All sort of validation and customised error messages
- Selectable tracking
- Akismet spam filtering
- And a whole bunch of styling options
The latest version of the form allows you to delete individual messages and there is a new range slider field. Demo here. Someone actually wrote me a letter the other day – really nice to get that.
Here’s some examples
You can see an example of the form over on the right. Have a play and you will see the error and thank-you messages. Everything you see can be edited and changed: fields, headers, messages, colours, fonts, borders and backgrounds.
There are some examples of forms over here.
There are some basic instructions for use on the plugin settings page.
I’ve also begun to put together an idiot’s guide. Only in English though. If you would like to help with a version for your language I would be most grateful.
Errors and Problems
If you use aol, gmail, yahoo, hotmail, live, aim, or msn you could find your email getting blocked by the host. I’ve updated the plugin so there is option to send using SMTP. This should solve the problem. If it doesn’t then try this troubleshooting guide.
The datepicker can sometimes default to English. WordPress should look after this but can get it wrong. There are a couple of solutions to help with localizations.
