A lot of more, in fact there a more than 40 of these bad boys, included in this FREE plugin and inserting them into a page couldn’t be easier… You simply click the ‘Insert Shortcode’ button above your WordPress post editor and select the shortcode you would like to use. That’s it!

All you do to use this plugin is download, install and enter the ‘Contact Form 7 Admin Page’ from the WordPress dashboard. There you can edit and create your contact forms with what ever questions you would like to ask on your contact form for your website. Then you attached the associated shortcode to page you want the contact form to display. This plugin also integrate with a lot of cool tools, including CRMs aka customer relation managers.
