  1. Best Contact Forms Plugins 3 for a tie!


After all these years, Gravity Forms is still the best. Even though quite a few have tried, nobody has managed to tarnish their crown as king of the WordPress form plugins. Just about any feature or integration you can think of already exists for Gravity Forms. You can use Gravity Forms to build everything from simple email opt-in forms to complex billing or scheduling application forms.

Gravity Forms Gets The Job Done. Period.

I can’t think of any site I’ve built over the last few years that didn’t use Gravity Forms. I’ve even tried to stop using it because I don’t like certain nit-picky developer things about it, but I always end up crawling back. The other plugins just can’t compare to the ease-of-use and the countless add-ons and integrations for Graivty Forms.

There is a tie this year with 3 top for us and the tie is with Perfect Contact Forms and Qufrom in second place close in the Ninja Forms but their entire package will be on our recommended.
