Recently working on a WordPress powered website, I needed to place different forms on the WordPress based website to generate leads and capture data. One contact form was to be setup through sidebar widget and other form was to be setup as lead generation standard ‘Get a Free Quote’ form placed in the theme header.
After reviewing many plugins, I found Gravity Forms plugin as the most flexible, secure and accessible. I needed something with the flexibility to add custom fields, and server and client side validations. This plugin is the ultimate form generator, and has so many options and features, it will do just about anything you require in any web form, whether it’s a lead generating Quote form or simple contact form with custom fields.
