Unless receiving feedback, enquiries and job requests is not important to you, having some way for your blog visitors to get in touch is a bit of a necessity! The humble contact page has always been a bit of a pain to setup when creating a website, luckily for us these days we have WordPress and a whole range of contact form plugins to ease this process. I previously covered setting up a contact form and adding a captcha to it with the Contact Form 7 plugin, so check that out for detailed instructions, this post will be a roundup of the many plugins available to you, for free.
Contact Form 7
This is my favourite and the one we use on WPLift, it has been used on thousands of websites because of its ease of setup and customisability. Contact Form 7 can manage multiple contact forms, plus you can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple markup. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and so on.
