This video will show you how to add a contact form to your website, through the use of a simple plugin.
(Video Coming Soon!)
To do this, go to Plugins > Add New, and do a search for the words “Contact Form”. The plugin we are looking for is by BestWebSoft. Once you’ve located the correct plugin, click “Install Now”, and then activate it.
The plugin will now appear in your list of plugins; however, it will also now have its own tab in your left navigation menu, titled BWS Plugins. You can adjust the settings for your new contact form by clicking on the new tab.
So, after you have the settings of your new contact form all configured, you still need to make the form actually appear on your website. To allow you to do this, the contact form provides a shortcode, which is a small snippet of code that will “pull” the contact form into the specific location that you place the code.
This makes making a contact page easy. All you will need to do is create a new page (you can name it “contact me” or anything that you’d like), and then simply place the shortcode inside the new page.
Once your page is ready, you can now add it to your menu, or a sidebar widget, so that your visitors will be able to easily see it and access it. And that’s it!
Steps to add your contact form:
- Install the plugin.
- Customize your form in the plugin’s settings tab.
- Copy your form’s shortcode.
- Create a new page, and paste in the shortcode.
- Add your new contact page to your menu or a widget.
