A quick search of the WordPress plugin repository and you will find 9,000 form plugins available. That is a lot! Forminator was released almost a year ago and although it is the new kid compared to other popular plugins, it brings some powerful features to any WordPress site.

9000 form plugins available on the WordPress repository!

Forminator, by WPMU Dev, is a free plugin on WordPress.org, that provides a powerful cost-free option for WordPress site owners. Forms are an essential part of just about any website. From comment forms to contact forms to more advanced forms like surveys, polls and payment fields forms, they provide a way for viewers to interact with your site.

Form Builder Options

There are several super popular form plugins but most have a very limited free version or cost for the full version. For several years, I have been a Gravity Forms user. The prices are steep though. There is no free version and the pricing ranges from $59 for one site to $259 for unlimited sites. Caldera Forms and WP Forms have lite versions but their paid versions range from $164.89 – $549.89 and $79 – $599. Ninja Forms also has some steep pricing from $99 – $499.

Since there is no shortage of options – what are the differences between the most popular form builders. Actually, not much! Most have no shortage of options, they tend to actually be fairly similar and user-friendly. The ones mentioned above range in price and for the most part offer the same features but you pay whether you have one or unlimited sites.
