Description: As a maker of WordPress-powered websites, you've likely needed to create and add many contact forms. In this course, take a closer look at the task of creating contact forms for your WordPress site.

Contact forms are a must-have for any WordPress-powered website, and these plugins—which range from simple and free to complex and pricey—can do a lot more than just ask for names, addresses, and messages.
