Creating the Contact Page

Earlier we installed a plug-in that add a contact form a webpage. Now it is time to use it.

1) Create a page as described above and give it the title “Contact form.” Make sure you are in “visual mode” and you can see all the usual editing icons. Type the following:

“This page is for you to contact us. Simply enter your details below”

2) Press the enter key a couple of times toleave a space at the top

 

  1. Underneath “This page is for you to contact us. Simply enter your details below” paste the code from Contact form 7 we found earlier, for this example we found the short code:

    [contact-form-7 id=”11″ title=”Contact form 1″]

    Tip: If you have forgotten the short code, publish this as a draft and click the Plugin option on the Dashboard menu. Then click on the “Settings” link for COntact Form 7, you should then see the short code needed. Go back to pages and re-edit you draft page. It may be called “No titled” if you gave it no heading.

  2. Click the preview button and a new tab/window will open and you can see you fully operational email form.   Close the tab, and then “Publish” your new page.

Exercise:  As a final piece of practice add a new page with the heading “Products” and practice adding some text and images.
