This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

SimpleForm Contact Form Submissions


Thanks to this lightweight plugin, you can view all data sent through the contact form in a sortable table form, or retrieve only data you need from the WordPress database by using the date filter or the search box. You can permanently delete the messages, move the messages to the trash or restore them from the trash. You can mark messages as spam, as unread or answered. Select columns and pagination from “Screen Options”. No configuration required. Once activated, you will find the new “Data Storing” option in the Settings page. Make sure to keep this option enabled, and you no longer need to worry about losing important messages, since each new form submission will be stored in your WordPress database!

For more detailed information refer to the SimpleForm plugin page.

In the video you see some features referring to SimpleForm 2.0 version that will be released soon!

Can I install this plugin without SimpleForm?

No. You cannot. You need SimpleForm to activate this plugin.

Why is this feature not integrated into the SimpleForm plugin?

We have designed SimpleForm to be a minimal, lightweight, fast and privacy-respectful plugin, and we want to keep it that way. You can choose to enable this feature at any time, and with a single click, depending on your needs.

Where can I check my form submissions?

Make sure you have selected the “Data Storing” option in the Settings page within the General tab, then open the Submissions page.

How can I disable storing submissions to the WordPress database?

Go to the Settings page within the General tab and uncheck the “Data Storing” option. The submissions list in the dashboard will be removed. User data storing will be disabled, and this data will be included only within the notification email.

Can I disable only the IP address storing?

Of course. You can select this option in the Settings page within the General tab.

How to make SimpleForm meet the GDPR conditions?

This plugin stores personal data collected through the contact form. Enable the “Consent Field” in the Form Editor page and make it a required field for requesting the user’s explicit consent.

What is the name of the table where the data is stored?

The table name is “wp_sform_submissions”, but if you changed your WordPress MySQL table prefix from the default “wp_” to something else, this table will also have that prefix.
