WordPress Quick Contact Form
A simple straightforward, user-friendly contact form
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?
- 10 selectable fields including name, email, telephone, dropdowns, checkboxes, date and radio fields
- 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
- And a whole bunch of styling options
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 examples of sites using the form right here (this does need updating). A less serious set of forms is 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 wp-main. This should solve the problem.
To test your server settings use this little plugin.
If you use redirections then you need to check your server settings as once the message has been send it now belongs to your host. So if it gets blocked or trashed then there’s not really much I can do to help.
