WordPress Contact Form 7: Blog post compilation

Anyone with a website surely needs a reliable contact form to allow visitors and guests to reach out to them. If you are using WordPress, there are more options for contact form plugins than I could fill up in words here in this post. However, one of the more popular and easy-to-configure plugins is Contact Form 7. I recently wrote a couple of blog posts over on Medium detailing how to create a simple contact form using the Contact Form 7 plugin and want to share those posts here on my blog for readers who may be interested…

Contact Form 7 makes it super easy to set up a form. As a matter of fact, the default input fields – used to capture user information – are fine to get started with. But, you can change them up if you like. Even change the label and field names to something more of your liking. I cover all that and more in the post, WordPress Contact Form 7: Creating a basic form.

Thank you!!!

A contact form that is not working properly can miss capturing important data and information from a user and that is no good. In order for the form data to be of any use, it should be present in the destination email when received. In the post, WordPress Contact Form 7: Configure email settings, I cover a couple of gotchas you should be on the lookout for to help mitigate the risk of losing captured user data.
