    Contact Form 7 works great and we have been using it for most of our sites. Just started using Gravity Forms on one of our sites and our web designer likes it the best so far.

        Take a look at UserThought feedback service’s free plan at http://userthought.com.

        It has a lot of feedback-related features and the integration in just one line of HTML code.

    My best experience is with contact form from Cloud Contact Forms. Those forms are hosted, made very easy in their ajax tool, and all user response is stored, and also have email utility to send mass email to all people who contact you, very useful for mailing list,etc…

    i have been using contact form 7 for some time and am increasingly frustrated by people using the form to send me messages that promote their seo business … is there a way of stopping them based on keyword testing of message or an email sent to them that they need to confirm before their message to me is sent to me?

    If you do consider splashing out on a plugin I would recommend iPhorm. It’s cheap and works great for me. Last week I was here and tried a few free ones recommended above, but gave in when I saw this. Am i bad? 😛 Perfect for a non coder, I’ve heard people say Gravity forms has more… but for me this is enough. Anyone else used it yet???

      I think iPhorm should be added to your list 🙂

    I stick to 123ContactForm plugin for WordPress for some time now.
    I find the free basic plan enough for the needs of a regular blogger like me – five forms per month (more than I need). I love the intuitive interface and their reporting features. Oh, and one more: they allow full CSS customization, which is a big bonus for a pettifogger like me 🙂

    Is there anyone here please tell me which plugin can get the title of the post where I put the form to appear to the visitor who submits the form and include it in the email too? I also want to have more than one form fields in one row/line. Is there any of the plugins can do this for me?
    I really need your help now as I don’t know what plugin to use!

    Thanks in advance for your kind help!

    does anyone know a contact form plugin that supports all these:
    -built-in form validation or ability to define the regular expressions
    -export to CSV files
    -custom CSS using style.css preferably (external style sheet)
    -email webmaster
    -ability to add personal JavaScript (e.g. I would like ability to add toggle to hide optional form fields, so user clicks and it hides or displays the set of forms)

    I’m using WordPress 3.3.1 btw.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks for this comprehensive list. I have used Gravity forms before, but it overkill for what I need. Ended up using Contact Forms 7 and it did the job.

    One of our customer actually found a very cool form builder for WordPress and posted it on our forum. The name is FormBerry ( http://www.formberry.com ) it don’t use Captcha instead they used nonces logic and Akismet pretty solid. They have also this digital signature thing so it’s pretty cool. The downside though is that you need to buy add-ons for some advanced functionality just like Gravity form but I think it’s fair enough.

    Speaking of Gravity form I like it too but it’s a resource hog.
