Any suggestions on what contact form to use for a Wordpress site?

I have a very active site in terms of form submissions, and I use Contact 7 form. But I get spammed to death. I even changed the email associated with the form, only to get a constant deluge of spam immediately after.

Thanks

I take it you don't have a Captcha or other challenge question on the form?

I have often used Contact 7, Gravity Forms (commercial), and the Fast Secure Contact Form plugin.

+1 for FS. It does have Captcha, but haven't needed it.

Thanks. I finally figured out that Contact 7 needs another plugin for the captcha. The captcha sure stopped the spam

Glad you got it sorted alika.

Yes, FS has been a good little plugin.

+1 for Contact Form 7. I like it because there are so many other plugins that you can combine/make work with it. Plus it's very simple.

I use all the above, including Gravity. I have no scientific aapproach to it but have found that other plugins can conflict and so it's a matter of changing the plugin until the conflict is resolved.

I've used most and the easiest and most reliable is contact form 7.
