The Contact Form 7 WordPress plugin is easily one of the most downloaded plugins of all time. It’s super lightweight, installs in seconds and your form will be published in a matter of minutes.

This lightweight form factor is what I like about this classic plugin – though some would question why it doesn’t have the functionality to save the summited form data to the WordPress database – well I guess thats the point, if it’s not required by everyone don’t include it, and keep it lightweight.
But help is at hand if you need to store Contact Form 7 submissions in your data base – the benefit being you can cross reference the emails you receive as well as download them as a CSV file to easily upload to your mailing service or other CRM.
It’s an add on plugin by the same chap that made Contact Form 7 itself so is most definitely the right tool for the job! It’s called “Flamingo” and takes moments to set up.
In this WordPress tutorial I’ll show you how easy it is to save Contact Form 7 to the database.
