Fast Secure Contact Form — One of Contact Page Plugins
Fast Secure Contact Form is a wordpress plugin, that is one of many plugins to create a contact page in wordpress that is very popular, and I personally use myself.
After install your wordpress blog, (related: Install wordpress 3.1) you would want to do stuff here and there, including creating a contact page for your website, create a new or updating “About Me” page in your blog.
Because I also have a html website (add .html wordpress), actually, belongs to me hubby, and this website is created as a static website, not using wordpress, it was pretty “complicated” to add a contact page without a php file.
I know, that you can actually embed a html contact form that are available out there, however, if you use wordpress, it is extremely easy to make your own contact page using a plugin.
Though it would be really nice, if, in the future, wordpress will include a contact page out of the box, as it includes Akismet after it is installed.
I personally, delete my “Hello Dolly” plugin right after I installed my blog. I don’t know if you still keep it, but I don’t find it is a necessary plugin to have. (related: What to do after installing wordpress).
Fast Secure Contact Form vs Contact Form 7 Plugin
If you use wordpress, I am sure you are also familiar with Contact Form 7, or probably you even have this plugin installed.
I personally have this Contact Form 7 Plugin in one of my blogs, and also have worked with it in my client’s site.
Because I am using Fast Secure Contact form plugin in this blog and my other blogs, I have my own opinion about Fast Secure Contact Form vs Contact Form 7 plugin.
After being familiar with those two plugins for about one year or one year and a half, I think, Fast Secure Contact Form plugin is better, although Contact Form 7 is amazing too.
But if I had to choose one of them, I would rather have Fast Secure Contact Form.
My reason is, because Contact Form 7 requires another plugin to display captcha, but Fast Secure Contact Form does not require us to install extra captcha plugin if we want it to display captcha in our contact page.
This is one of the reason why I choose Fast Secure Contact Form. It is also very easy to use.
However, if you want a file uploading option with a very easy to customize and modify, Contact Form 7 has this alternative.
Fast Secure Contact Form Contact Page Demo
As written in the above paragraph, I am using this plugin in this blog. If you want, you can visit my contact page to see the demo of this plugin usage.
It is actually a simple page, where people can send me message or anything and then I will receive the message through the email I gave to this plugin’s setting.
By default, this plugin will have the email address as same as the email in your profile page. (related: Change email address wordpress).
Another great thing about this plugin, is, the developer seems to update this plugin greatly, whenever there is an update with wordpress version.
Fast Secure Contact Form is my contact page plugin.
