The Secret Diary of The WordPress Doctor 3

Chapter 3 – Adding a contact form

One of the principal functions of a website is so people can contact you – am I right..? 

So it makes sense a key thing to be confident about is adding a contact form to your WordPress website – it makes things simple for your users, and looks professional – what’s not to like? 

To add a contact form to your website using the visual builder you will need to enable the visual builder on the contact page, (always a good start). You will then need to click into the page so that you can choose from the list of attributes – then click contact form. This will then add a pre-loaded contact form onto the page which you have chosen. To edit the form you will need to click on the flowered styled cog, this will then bring up the settings of the contact form. 

Here is where you are able to change how many sections you have, what each section has in it and also where you are able to style your contact form. 

If you would like to watch out video on how to add a contact form to your website you can do so here:
