Contact Form 7 Plugin

One of my favourite Contact Form plugins for WordPress is Contact Form 7. It’s easy to use, easy to set up and only requires a copy/paste of code into any page or widget and it works. I have tried a few of the other forms and find they are more time consuming and difficult to set up. I usually delete the plugin and install Contact Form 7 instead. My tried and true form plugin.

This isn’t a step-by-step how to set up the contact form, there is really good documentation that goes along with it. What I would like to point out is that some email providers block all WordPress emails as spam and go directly to the junk folder. I even set up rules that allowed any email from the WordPress website to be routed to the inbox but to no avail.

In comes Flamingo Plugin to the rescue. This plugin will take a copy of the Contact form entered and submitted and stores it on your website in the dashboard. You can sign in, click Flamingo in the left hand menu and see a list of all contact forms sent out of the website. If you have Google Recaptcha installed on the Contact Form 7 plugin, it will separate real forms from what Google believes is Spam.

This is a handy backup for you if you miss checking your Spam folder.
