    Nice Plugin but it does not provides more functionality than the Sites like JotForm and all which provide advance options. But Plugin is Nice.

    There are many contact plugins and it’s hard to find the right one. I do my best to stay away from ones that use CAPTCHA, there are sometimes when it does not work.

    I remember trying to leave a comment and it kept on saying that the code I was entering is incorrect. I eventually gave up.

    What I would like to mention is the multiple forms, that’s a bonus if you need it for other details.
