Gravity Forms WordPress Form Plugin Review
You’ll always need some kind of contact or conversion Form on your site and since I use WordPress a lot both for clients sites and my own, I’m always on the lookout for good Form plugins. I prefer to stick with free plugins for the most part. There are tons of excellent and free wordpress plugins to do almost anything you wish including some good free form plugins such as Contact Form 7 and Cforms but there comes a time when you need to fork out a little to get that extra bit of functionality, quality and support.
I’ve been using Gravity Forms for quite a while now and for me it stands apart from the rest. It’s a very reasonably priced ($39 at time of writing) commercial WordPress Forms Plugin with an incredible feature list including:
- Simple drag and drop form creation,
- Accept WordPress Posts/Articles via form submissions,
- Conditional Fields that change following fields based on previous input,
- Limit the number of form submissions, eg First 20 competition submissions only,
- View and respond to generated querys from within WordPress admin,
- Calculation Fields,
- Excellent Addons including Paypal, MailChimp and User Registration.
- Easy embedding into posts and pages,
- Multiple field types,
- Advanced Address fields,
- Advanced Auto-responders with form field integration,
- Quick bulk population of predefined lists, drop downs, etc,
- Upload images and files,
- reCaptcha anti-spam,
- HTML content fields,
- Import/Export/Backup forms,
- Export form data to CSV,
- Notification Email formatting,
- Notification to different email addresses based on submission rules,
- Valid HTML form code,
- Dynamic field pre-population,
- Schedule a begining and end date during which your form will appear,
- New form submission notifications in the WordPress dashboard,
- Present category list for post submissions,
- Choose status of submitted posts,
- Pass form data to a confirmation page for integration with 3rd parties,
- Use supplied hooks to integrate with other WordPress plugins.
