The contact form module that comes with Divi is actually quite good.
It serves users well for contact forms and other simple forms, with it’s basic no-nonsense interface. If you want to build a large form or one with complex logic then most developers opt to use a standalone plugin, but often these can be bulky and yet another thing to buy and keep up to date. This isn’t always the best option to take.
One thing that the Divi Contact Form module doesn’t do, is log when someone has submitted a form. This can be frustrating if emails go astray – WordPress email deliverability out of the box is notoriously bad. It’s better to be able to read your emails when you next log in to your website, rather than losing the enquiry completely.
Enter the Divi Form DB plugin.
This simple, lightweight plugin stores contact form submissions in your WordPress database, in an easy to use and read interface. It has accountability built in so you know which user has read which messages and when, as well as alerting admins with a dashboard banner to remind you to read your messages.
Another use for this plugin is to keep a backup of all submissions, without alerting you in the dashboard, just so you know that you always have a copy in case of email issues.
This plugin also has another feature up it’s sleeve – and it’s a huge feature. It allows you to convert any submission into ANY post type so a simple contact form can be used for submissions of testimonials, case studies, support tickets, even full blog or news posts.
Exporting your data is simple. Save to a CSV on a per form basis to let you store the data offline, or import it into another application or website.
