Contact forms

A contact form is a form that can be filled in for sending an Email to a specific person. This is done by setting up the information using the contact form plugin (Click ‘Contacts’ on the menu on the left) and then inserting what is called a short code into the page where the form should appear.  The shortcode will look something like

[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

The precise shortcode text is shown for each form in the list of forms.  The best way to create a new form is to move the mouse over where an existing form is listed in the list of forms and a ‘duplicate’ option appears.  Click ‘duplicate’ and it makes a copy of the form.  Change the title to something appropriate, click on the mail tab, and change the Email address to the correct address and then click ‘Save’ on the right hand side of the window.

The new form is ready to be used on a webpage
