danixland contact form


danixland-contact-form is a very simple and secure contact form plugin, it provides a shortcode to include your plugin inside a page and you can style it the way you want (it comes with almost no styles attached to it). This plugin follows all WordPress security standards and will be continuously improved in order to make it even safer.

This contact form plugin ships with a working html template for your emails, and has a filter that allows you to use your own template in case you need it. It’s perfect for a customer’s website, so that you can give them an email look that’s consistent with the look of their website.

The entire plugin is translation ready and ships with an italian translation, together with a .POT file to help you translate it in every language you may need.

ToDo list

This list is actually empty, but I’m open to suggestions.


danixland-contact-form ships in English language with an optional Italian translation and a .POT template. If you want to contribute your own translation contact me and I’ll add it.


  • The shortcode button as seen in the new Page of the admin area.
  • The admin area menu with the Contact Form option selected and a part of the plugin settings page.
  • One of the options in the plugin settings page, this one allows you to choose if you want to receive html or plain text emails.
  • The privacy policy as seen inside the page on the TwentyFifteen theme.
  • Some of the inputs as seen on the TwentyFifteen theme. Here you can see the use of Genericons for the labels.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/danixland-contact-form directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Contact Form admin screen to configure the plugin.
  4. Create a page to hold your plugin and add the [dnx_contactform] shortcode to display the form. If you need you can insert other text before or after the shortcode.


Is it possible to display a map on the form page?

Starting from version 1.3 is no longer possible. It used to be possible by providing geo coordinates and a Gmaps API key in order for the map to show up, but I decided against it. If users require a map I’ll look into integrating it again.

Is it possible to include a privacy policy with the contact form?

Inside the Contact Form admin screen you can provide your own Privacy Policy and it will show up before the form itself.

How can I style the plugin to look like my theme?

every tag that’s in the plugin output has either a class or an id attached to it, so that you can style it the way you want it.
The only tag that comes with a style attached to it is a honeypot text field that is made to be hidden.

I’m stuck with your plugin and don’t seem to be able to customize it/make it work, can you help me?

Of course, you can ask for help on the forums or write a comment on the main article for this plugin on my site, I’ll reply ASAP 😉

I’d like this plugin to be translated in my language, can you do this for me?

danixland contact form ships with a .POT file that can be used to create a translation of the plugin in your language, so if you’re familiar with english you can help by providing a translation and it will be added to future versions of the plugin along with a link to your profile on these pages 😉

To provide a translation simply edit the file “danixland-contact-form.pot” and fill every line with the traduction in your language, then save it as yourlanguagecode.po (E.G. it_IT.po for Italian), then contact me via the forums or my site and I’ll tell you how to send this file to me. I’ll add your translation ASAP.

A number of softwares exists to help you with .po files, like POEdit or Lokalize
