Gravity Forms takes the cake when it comes to WordPress contact form plugins. It’s a paid plug-in with features such as in line html content, import/export forms, conditional form fields, email notification routing, enhanced custom fields, validation for multiple forms, form scheduling, limit form entries, post image field, post category field, integrate with other forms using hooks, visual form editor and many more features.
Official site can be found here.
Gravity Forms is the only form plugin I use and recommend others use. It’s super easy to use and advanced. You can build complex forms easily by dragging and dropping form functions ajax-style, so it literally takes a minute to build a form.
Features I really like:
Schedule Forms - Only want a form available for a limited period of time? Set a start and end date to limit form access and display a custom message when the form has expired.
Pricing Fields – Gravity Forms makes it’s easy to create order forms. Order forms can incorporate pricing specific fields to allow your users to make selections and generate a total based on product and option selections.
Form Builder – Quickly build and design your WordPress forms using the form editor. Select your fields, configure your options, and easily embed forms on your WordPress powered site using the built in tools.
Another reason I use Gravity Forms is because it saves every form submission inside your wp database so you can easily access and answer every query.[divider_line]
