In a WordPress.com blog, it is simple to create a Contact Us form.
There are, however, a couple of things you will want to tweak:
- You’ll want the messages to be sent to your PubhD email address, so multiple PubhD “Admins” can logon to the same email account to see and respond to the messages.
- You’ll want each message subject to be unique. By default, “Contact Us” messages will arrive with identical subject text. This is a problem because Gmail groups emails by subject; so if every message has the same subject you will have many different “Contact Us” messages grouped together into one email thread. This is not very convenient.
To create a Contact Us page:
- Create a new page (rather than a new post).
- Paste in the code below.
- Amend the “to” email address.
[contact-form to='YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS'] [contact-field label='Name' type='subject' required='1' default=' '/] [contact-field label='Email' type='email' required='1'/] [contact-field label='Website' type='url'/] [contact-field label='Comment' type='textarea' required='1'/] [/contact-form]
With this, the “Contact Us” messages that arrive in your inbox will have the person’s name as the email subject.
And I’m sure WordPress.org will have a plugin, and Blogspot will have its own “contact form” code.
