Divi Contact Form Helper

Divi Contact Form Helper is an extension to Divi’s existing contact form module. It adds functionality such as file uploads, field text options, the ability to save submissions to a database, a date/time picker, additional design settings, and more. The plugin settings are spread across the contact form module, a new WordPress dashboard page, and additional Divi Theme Options settings. We’ll take a look at all of these settings to give you an idea of what can be accomplished with this plugin.

  1. The contact form helper looks great. I hope they add a signature field into it as well, that would be awesome to make it a fully usable “contract form”.

    Sad to see though that simple things like file upload and confirmation mail settings are not in the regular module already. I wonder if they ever gonna extend any of the current modules or if they just let marketplace creators do this from now on…

  2. I’m not even kidding when I say I use this on every site I build. It adds so much more functionality to the Divi form and if you have support questions, Nelson is on it, answering very quickly. It’s one I recommend to everyone…. no kickback, I just fully support this plugin.

  3. I love this plugin! Forms that don’t require extra fancy things—like collecting money or registering—can work with the native Divi Contact Module when you add this magnificent plugin. It’s already amazing and they seem to keep enhancing it. Highly recommended.
