Are you looking for a way to include a contact form in the middle of your blog post, rather than just on your contact page? As a site owner, you need to give your readers an easy way to contact you from your site.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to add a contact form to your WordPress post content.
How to Add a Contact Form in Your WordPress Post Content
In This Article
Step 1: Create Your WordPress Form
Once you’ve installed the WPForms plugin, go to WPForms » Add New, and name your form. Then find the Simple Contact Form template and click on the Use Template button.
WPForms will create a simple contact form for you.
In fact, when the pre-built contact form loads, most of the work is already done. You’ll see that Name, Email, and Message fields have automatically been added to the form.
You can add additional fields to your form by dragging them from the left-hand panel to the right-hand panel.
You can also click on a form field and drag it to rearrange the order on your contact form. To customize a field’s settings, click on it to open the options panel.
And if you’re worried about being GDPR compliant, you can also add a GDPR Agreement field to your form so people can explicitly consent to you sending them marketing emails in the future.
Step 2: Configure Your Form Settings
Once your contact form looks the way you want it to, click the Settings tab in the Form Editor. This will take you to the form’s settings.
There are many form settings to configure:
- General Settings: Here you can change things like your form’s name, description, and submit button copy. You can also enable additional spam prevention features to keep your website secure from unwanted form submissions.
- Form Confirmations: Form confirmations are messages that display to site visitors once they submit a contact form on your website. WPForms has three confirmation types to choose from: Message, Show Page, and Redirect. You can choose one or a combination.
- Form Notifications: Notifications are a great way to send an email whenever an order form is submitted on your website. A notification will automatically send to you once a form is submitted on your site. You can also send one to the site visitor who submitted the form and anyone else who needs to be notified of form submissions.
In addition, if you’ve added a subscribe checkbox to your contact form, you’ll need to integrate it with your preferred email marketing provider.
WPForms offers the following email service provider integrations:
- Constant Contact
- Campaign Monitor
- Brevo (formerly Sendinblue)
- Campaign Monitor
Once you’ve configured all your form’s settings, make sure to save your form by clicking the orange button at the top of the form builder.
Step 3: Add Your Form to Your WordPress Post
WPForms allows you to add your forms in various locations including your blog posts, pages, and your sidebar.
If you’re using Elementor, you can skip this section and follow the steps in our Elementor contact form guide instead.
To add a contact form in your WordPress post content, the first thing you need to do is either create a new blog post in WordPress or edit the existing post where you want to add the contact form.
Next, add a new block wherever you want your form to appear. Then select the WPForms block.
From the dropdown that appears, select the Simple Contact Form you just created.
After that, all you have to do is update or publish your post so your contact form will appear on your website.
Here’s what our form looks like when added to the middle of a blog post:
Once you’ve published your form, you can easily find which blog posts you’ve added it to using the WPForms Form Locator.
Head over to the WPForms » All Forms. Open the screen options at the top of the page and make sure the Locations option is checked.
This will add the Locations column to your Forms Overview page. In the row for your Simple Contact Form, you’ll see the number of locations where you’ve embedded it.
Click on this number to see all the locations listed. You can click on the link for any of them to view the post, page, or widget where you’ve added your contact form.
