Zero Conf Mail

Simple mail contact form, the way I like it. No ajax, no bloat. No configuration necessary, but possible.

It took me quite some time to check a few existing contact forms and I didn't like any of them. No, I don't want you to load jquery on every page of my blog. I want it localized, pretty please. Oh, and I want this JavaScript onfocus/onblur effect I wrote about. And why do I have to do any configuration at all anyway?

Since 0.6.0 the plugin has a built-in spam protection that won't bother your human visitors but will most likely catch all spambots.


The easiest way to use this plugin is to use the shortcode [zcmail]. There's also a widget that you can drag into one of your sidebars.

Using the mail form in your theme

You can call the function zcmail_shortcode() from your theme to get the same output as from the shortcode. Example:

if ( function_exists( 'zcmail_shortcode' ) ) {
    echo zcmail_shortcode()
