Create a contact form with Ninja Forms

A contact page is one of the very first things you add on your new WordPress blog or business site.

There’s a bunch of contact form plugins out there, but one that we really love is Ninja Forms. The way we see it, each plugin can create a contact form, but they all have their respective strong points.

In today’s example, it’s as easy as installing the Ninja Forms plugin to get your contact page setup!

Installing Ninja Forms

You can grab Ninja Forms from the WordPress repository or from their site The WP Ninjas.

Step 4, head over to Forms > Forms and see that Ninja Forms comes pre packaged with a default contact form. How easy is that?
