    I notice you still have the problem. Are you sure it's not a theme/template issue?

    Just been having a look to see what's out there at the moment and found a couple of plugins/themes that look alright.

    Formidable Pro: Alternative to Gravity Forms with lifetime pricing (as opposed to Gravity Forms' annual payment... unless you bought it early)

    TVC Toolset: Build complete Wordpress Sites without coding. Lifetime licence available for $295.

    Ultimatum Theme: (Newish) drag and drop theme with lifetime member option for $125.

    Have you found any others?

    this is a good thread but perhaps we should now split it into "free" and "paid" plugins, i think that would be valid, what do others think?

    I use Skin Login

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/skin-login/

    It changes the logo and few other cool options.

    I don't see a reason to.

    just love'n this ubermenu
    http://wpmegamenu.com/ , just $16, but has a world of features I haven't even got anywhere near just yet.

    so I thought i'd show you a site i'm using it on, still in dev mode.

    http://www.aztecproducts.com.au/

    scroll over the top nav " products "

    you can create title and not have to link to them which has always been a pain in studiopress.

    VideoZen is a great plugin for self hosting video. It makes use of VideoJS, Zencoder & AWS.

    In other words it encodes the video for streaming, converts it into multiple formats optimised for desktop, mobile etc and then uploads it to Amazon cloud hosting before finally rendering it in HTML5 with Flash fallback.

    Works perfectly.

    Doesn't happen to me, it might be better to open a thread as it will get messy with opinions

    Hey guys,

    You've provided some great plugs in there, I will need to look at wordfence further.

    My contribution, which hasn't been listed(or I may have missed it).

    Contact form DB - https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7-to-database-extension/
    Save a copy of form submissions to the database, I use this as a back up in case webserver can't deliver mail, or clients are good at losing mail ;).
    I use it with contact form 7 all the time, but looks like it also supports gravity forms as well.

    Antispam Bee - https://wordpress.org/plugins/antispam-bee/
    pretty much like akismet, but you don't need to register to use it.

    Add from server - https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-from-server/
    Allows you to upload files via FTP and then "add from server" adds it to wp's media library.

    Media Library Assistant - https://wordpress.org/plugins/media-library-assistant/
    A more detailed way to manage your media than the usual media library.

    Hope you find some of these useful.

    Chris.

    Gravity does that by default.

    Also, not a plugin but is anybody else using Roots.io? It's made WP development almost enjoyable :D
