WordPress is such a powerful CMS, it's one of the most obvious choices for building anything from a blog to a new landing page for your business. But it's the plugins that make it truly great—they're add-ons that can turn your WordPress site into a store, forum, survey tool, and much more.

Ninja Forms is one of the more powerful plugins you could add to your WordPress site. On the surface, it's just another tool to build forms on your blog—and that's a great feature to add to WordPress. But, with Ninja Forms' own extensions, you can do even more. Its most interesting extension, in some ways, is its Front-end Posting, which lets you edit pages and posts live on your site—no need to login to /wp-admin/ anymore.

That's a handy trick to keep your site up-to-date effortlessly, using the form tool that you'll also use to add contact forms, surveys and more to your site. Ninja Forms is great at making forms, as you'd expect, with all the standard form fields you need. Just drag-and-drop the form elements you need into a list, tweak them as you need, then publish the form on another page of your WordPress site.

Then, as your form is filled out, Ninja Forms can send you customized email notifications. Or, you can use Ninja Forms actions to do anything else you want once the form is filled out. You can then see your form entries inside of your WordPress admin, with tools to sort and search through entries or download them all in .CSV format.

Ninja Forms' extensions can also add extra features to your forms. You can purchase extensions to connect Ninja Forms to your favorite apps, add conditional logic or multiple pages to your forms, include file uploads in form results, or even customize the form layout with multiple columns and CSS themes. There's even a table editor, so you can view your results in a spreadsheet-like interface right inside of WordPress. And if you need anything else, you can use Ninja Forms hooks, functions, and API to create anything you want with your forms.

There are tons of form plugins for WordPress, but few let you customize as much as Ninja Forms. It's the form plugin to pick if you want to deeply integrate your forms into your site, and use them to make a far more advanced site than WordPress offers on its own.
