As a long-term WordPress user, Gutenberg will change everything you were used to with WordPress.That includes amazing ways to create Contact Forms With Gutenberg (not including several other form types that you can create).
Upgrade to WordPress 5.0 and you’ll see Gutenberg will come home, knocking on your door. Gutenberg is already here.
Using “blocks” in spite of everything else, using WordPress will be pretty much like using any of the popular WordPress page builders that you might have already used or heard about.
As the community at WordPress puts it,
“The editor will endeavor to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.”
Your typical images, audio, video, galleries, tables, widgets, and lists — they’ll all be controlled by blocks, as Eric Karkovac of Envato writes.
This means that how you create, manage, and use WordPress forms will also change.
It’s pertinent then that you quickly learn how to create contact forms with Gutenberg (starting with an obvious ones):

As usual, WPforms helps you create as many forms as you’d like (for various purposes) and also use “advanced” section to add CSS classes to your form(s).
Contact 7 Plugin Gutenberg Block
If you were just up and running with WordPress and did not come around to using any of the dedicated WordPress form builders, chances are that you’d end up using Contact 7 Plugin at least.
Thankfully, the plugin developers released a Gutenberg update for their plugin called the Contact 7 Gutenberb block.
This update lets you use the popular Contact 7 form plugin (now delivered as a block) that you can add from within the Gutenberg Editor.
Divi Is Ready
Built your entire website with Divi (like I did)? You’d be happy to know that Divi is already Gutenberg-ready and has already launched initial support for the Gutenberg editor.
If you had installed the Gutenberg editor plugin and are already using the new editor, you’ll have the option of toggling between Gutenberg, the classic editor, and Divi itself.
Nothing changes for Divi users. In fact, you only have more options now. Build out your forms using the classic editor, the Gutenberg editor, or Divi.
I am sure other WordPress page builders are already working on Gutenberg support as well.
