Blogging has become popular over the past five years for two main reasons.   Bloggers like the ability to have their voice heard without having to go through editors or censorship, while readers enjoy blogs because they are quicker to break news  and they allow direct interaction with the author.  

Whenever I create a new blog, the first thing I add is an About page to give more information about the author, and the second thing I add is a way to contact the author.   This is where the WP-Contact Form plugin by Douglas Karr really shines!  

This form provides you with the security you need to protect your e-mail address and personal information from spammers while at the same time providing you a bunch of useful functionality.   Once you’ve activated your plugin, you can add a bunch of functionality from the Options panel in your WordPress dashboard including:

  • Add a drop-down menu to give users options
  • Give users the option to carbon copy themselves
  • Add a challenge question that users need to answer

If you are a WordPress user and don’t have a contact form, or you just aren’t happy with the one you are using, I recommend giving this one a shot.   If this doesn’t sound like the one for you, here are a few other popular contact form plugins that you make like better:

  • Contact Form ][
  • PXS Mail Form
  • Enhanced Contact Form
