Contact Forms v2.0.0 released

A simple contact forms plugin with an options page allowing default settings to be configured; these settings can, in most cases, be overridden when adding a contact form to a page. This plugin supports the use of multiple contact forms on a page.

Contact forms can be placed on pages using the simple-contact-form shortcode which supports the following parameters:

  • id is the only mandatory parameter; a unique id for each contact form on the page must be supplied.
  • send-from-email allows the default send from email address to be overridden.
  • send-from-name allows the default send from email name to be overridden.
  • recipients is a comma separated list of email address which allows the default recipients to be overridden.
  • label-name allows the default label for the name field to be overridden.
  • label-email allows the default label for the email field to be overridden.
  • label-subject allows the default label for the subject field to be overridden.
  • label-message allows the default label for the message field to be overridden.
  • subject allows the default subject for the name field to be overridden. If an empty subject is provided, users can free form type a subject. Multiple subjects to allow picking from a drop down list can be supplied, separated with a |.
  • subject-prefix allows a subject prefix to be added to all subjects when the email is sent and override the default.

Example shortcode usage:

	[simple-contact-form id="contact-us" recipients="[email protected],[email protected]" subject="Sales|Support|Accounts" subject-prefix="Contact us from"]

This plugin is multisite compatible, with options set on a per site basis.

Very nice but how about adding spam protection? As it is now it’s a real honey pot?

There is some built into it. I have it running a on a few sites including some with 5,500+ visits a month and have little spam getting through.

Okay – no change using something like reCaptcha?

I could do that if there is a need to enhance the protection further; I didn’t use it as I opted for some methods which shouldn’t interrupt end-users.

Have you tried the plugin and had problems?
