Gravity Forms – the most powerful WordPress form creation plugin
It’s hard to overemphasize the flexibility of gravity forms for WordPress. It’s a must have plugin for anyone building a serious WP site. I use it myself as my contact form, and for my newsletter subscription form, and I’ve used it for dozens of client sites in a wide range of scenarios.
You can use Gravity Forms for a lot more than just a contact form. The core plugin has been extended with related plugins called Add-Ons which provide additional useful functionality.
For instance, with the User Registration Add-On you can use Gravity Forms to register new users, and or allow users to submit changes to their profile from within their account. Especially useful is the integration with mailing list services like MailChimp.
Gravity Forms also includes e-commerce functionality. If you want to set up a basic membership site, or sell content, you can use the PayPal or PayPal Pro Add-Ons. It’s extremely easy to set up, and doesn’t require any programming. Everything can be done using a simple point and click interface.
The quizzes Add-On is very useful if you want to set up a quiz. Polls Add-On is great for setting up surveys. There are even some specialized Add-Ons for adding neat features like the ability for adding a digital signature to any form.
