My Favourite WordPress cForms Styling Skin

Every WordPress site – without exception – I build has the free WordPress plugin cForms somehow tied in, it’s the ultimate contact form e-mailer plugin for WordPress and Delicious Days have carved out a beautiful solution.

I feel an area for improvement that the cForms community can deliver are great looking ‘skins’ for cForms II; the developer of cForms II refers to them as ‘styles’ but that’s just confusing for newbies. I’ve uploaded the cForms II skin I use here on my Visser Labs Contact page, I hope it brightens up your site!
