WordPress is an outstanding platform that allows just about any user of any level to create beautiful looking websites. In addition to having several choices of ready made templates, WordPress has the advantage of its features being enhanced with the use of plugins. To put it simple, plugins are sort of add-ons that are attached to WordPress to enhance its features and capabilities. Social sharing plugins, SEO plugins, performance plugins, form builders, are just but a few examples of what can be found out ther readily available to help make a WordPress users life a tad easier.
Let’s take form builder plugins as an example. You would think that it is nothing more than just creating a contact form to have your audience send you some emails, right? Well, yes and no. There are form builders that does just that, and then there is Captainform.
Today I will be sharing with you a brand new form building plugin for WordPress, which is still in beta phase before the official launch goes ahead. Reason for this is that they are oferring some good stuff for anyone who provides them with feedback. More or that later.
What Is Captainform Form Builder?
Captainform is not your regular form builder. As I mentioned earlier, this one goes beyond just creating contact forms. The plugin allows you to build just about any type of forms you can think of and quite easily. The image below should you an an idea of what you can do with the plugin. I think that is pretty much self explanatory.

Intuitive Editor: With drag-and-drop strength, CaptainForm lets you build web forms right within your WordPress form plugin dashboard.
Form templates: Choose from a gallery of 30+ free form templates. CaptainForm then enables you to customize them as you see fit.
Advance security: One of Captainform’s powers is advanced security. SSL encryption, password protection or CAPTCHA, he’s got them.
Why does Captainform standout?
One of the things I like best about Captainform is becasue of its pre-installed functionalities. In addition, the ease of use and its pre-built templates are just a time saver. Installing the plugin and getting additional support is just the same as 123ContactForm, as they are all in the same group of people.
