Feb 10, 2021

Gravity Forms is an advanced form builder plugin for WordPress. It can be a solution if you want to create a WordPress-based website that consists of forms. Not just a contact form but also forms like a user registration form, front-end content submission form, job application form, to a payment form. To ease your job in creating a form, Gravity Forms offers a form builder where everything is drag and drop. You just need to pick a form field and then drag it to the canvas area.

In addition to allowing you to create forms, Gravity Forms also allows you to manage the form submissions without installing an extra plugin thanks to its built-in form submission manager.
