How to Add a Contact Form

You can choose which plugin to use for your contact form, but the instructions below are for the Contact Form 7 plugin.

  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard > Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for the Contact Form 7 plugin > install and activate it
  3. Go to Contact (from the left column) > Contact Forms
  4. Open the existing contact form in the editor and replace the code with this one:
[text* your-name placeholder "Name"] [email* your-email placeholder "Email"] [text* your-subject placeholder "What can I help you with?"] [textarea your-message placeholder 7x6 "Message"] [submit "Send!"]

This is just what is used in the demo – you can change the placeholders and add more fields.

  1. Save the changes and copy the shortcode for the contact form
  2. Go to Pages > open the page where you want to add a contact form > paste the shortcode in a Shortcode block

Tip: install & activate the Flamingo plugin to store submitted messages in your dashboard.
