In September, a number of folks in our local WordPress community engaged in a robust conversation on Twitter about the use and value of contact forms on websites. In a wide-ranging exchange that spanned several days, it became clear that contact forms are a point of interest, concern, and perhaps even of content.
The tl;dr of the Twitter exchange centered on the business value of simple contact forms on business websites, and how to handle the growing level of spam form submissions.
For our November gathering, Daniel Olson will take a comprehensive look at website contact forms. Why do we use them? What problem is a form trying to solve? From capturing leads to blocking spam, Daniel will help us learn the tools, best practices, and platforms available for sending and receiving inquiries online.
