WordPress WPForms Lite Plugin Settings post helps you set up the plugins basic settings, email, validations, integrations and more.

Last Updated: September 18, 2019

Latest News: I updated the changelog.

WPForms Lite plugin allows you to drag and drop fields into a form, which helps you to create forms very easily.

For some the simple action of dragging the field into a position makes their job easier when creating forms. The other very important factor is that it has already built templates for you to use. This simplifies the process of creating different contact forms for your site.

There are extra templates and addons available in the Pro version. I highly recommend you to upgrade to the pro version if you require more functionality, different contact forms and more flexibility.

WPForms Lite Changelog

  • Fixed: Broken reCAPTCHA checkbox in Builder > Settings > General if reCAPTCHA type does not set in WPForms > Settings.
  • Fixed: Email field server-side validation issue.
  • Fixed: Broken “Bulk add” option in Builder in IE 11.
  • Fixed: Broken image choices selection and styling (layout) issue in IE 11.
  • Fixed: Backward compatible filters for some fields when displaying them were missing.
