Send Email

By default, weForms sends email using your site’s current email configuration. If you go this route, remember to use a plugin like WordPress Easy SMTP to make sure your email goes through. With premium versions of weForms, you can connect to other services.

Show Credit

This allows you to toggle the ‘powered by weForms’ message on the form itself. Leave the box checked if you want to keep the message on the form itself. Uncheck it to remove.

Enable No-Conflict Mode

Plugin conflicts are a constant concern when building WordPress sites. If your forms run into trouble, enable ‘No-Conflict Mode’. This mode overrides other plugins blocking your form submissions. This is a great workaround if you’re in the middle of troubleshooting your WordPress plugins.

By default, email sent by with weForms displays a weForms credit in the footer. You’ll need to upgrade to the premium version of weForms to deactivate this.

Form Permission

Only Administrator level users can edit weForms configurations. Premium versions of weForms can let other users setup forms.

Users can follow an upgrade link directly to the weForms site. Upgrading unlocks features analytics and more premium modules.
