Every website needs a good contact form. Although there are many contact plugins, Forminator stands out among others. Has tons of features in a free version, beautiful interface, and is very easy to use.
It is developed by WPMU DEV which makes great plugins like Hummingbird, SmartCrawl, Defender, etc. Also, they offer hosting services.
Let’s start reviewing Forminator and see what features it has.
Forminator is a feature-packed form builder. Its power is in ease of use, options, add-ons, integrations, performance, etc.

First of all, this is not only a contact form builder. You can create newsletter forms, register, and login forms. But has separate modules for quizzes and polls. So, you can build forms, polls, and quizzes with one plugin.
Another great feature is in its integration abilities. You can easily integrate your forms with third-party apps. It integrates perfectly with these apps.
Forminator integration apps include:
- Google Sheets
- Campaign Monitor
Additionally, you can create a custom API for integrations. Options are unlimited. And this is available in a free version of the plugin.
Also, you can implement Google reCapthca to your forms for more security. It will help you to avoid spam and malware.
For more features like premium fields, subscription payment forms, and white labeling you can upgrade to a pro version.
Forminator Forms Options
When you start to create a form it gives you the option to choose templates for contact form, registration form, newsletter, etc. Or you can start from scratch with blank. You give it a name and you are good to go.
Now, the interface is very modern and easy to use. It is not complicated and everyone should be able to create a form with ease.
Form creation is divided into sections like fields, appearance, behavior, etc.
In the fields section, you construct a form with different fields and send button. Perhaps the Forminator has more fields option with a free version than any other free form builder. Some fields are pro in other form plugins.
It has every field you will ever need for your forms. You can create very advanced and beautiful forms.
Forminator has advanced fields such as:
- Date Picker
- File Upload
- GDPR Approval
Also, it has Paypal and Stripe payment options, so you can build a payment form. That is a big one.
Appearance is a section where you will beautify your form with different options. Change the look of your form, change colors for inputs, placeholders, buttons, etc. Also, change fonts, customize padding, and border.

You can do whatever you want and make your form custom. There are almost no limits. I honestly think that this is the most customizable form builder.
It also has a custom CSS option so if you know little coding you can change even more and make your form even more custom.
Next is the behavior section. Here you create settings for how your form should behave. You can choose what happens after the successful submission – the form could display a message or redirect the user to a specific page.
Also, enable autofill, different security tweaks, submission lifespan, and other options. And you can use AJAX loading and prevent caching for this form. Many options to choose from.
And in the notifications section, you choose the email where submission is sent and you can use multiple mails if you want. Also, as I mentioned earlier, you can integrate forms with other apps from the integration section.
How To Insert Forminator On Your Website
After you are done, press the Publish button, and your form creation is done. It will give you a shortcode that can be inserted on your pages or posts whether you use Gutenberg, Elementor, or other page builders.
Now, on the Forminator dashboard, you will see your newly created form. If you press a little gear icon you will see that you can edit, preview, get short code, duplicate, export, or delete it.
Also, you can see stats like views, submissions, and conversion rates for that particular form. This plugin gives almost everything you need for free.
Forminator is really a great plugin from a great team behind it. This is my favorite form plugin and I use it on WPSUM. I highly recommend this plugin to everyone. It is tested and works perfectly.
