Contact Form

A contact form is a great way to offer your readers the ability to get in touch, without giving out your personal email address.

Creating a contact form

You can add a contact form to any post or page. To get started, click the contact form icon above the post editor. Note: you can only have one contact form per page.

Add a Contact Form

In the popup that appears, you can add, edit, and reorder the fields.

Handling the form results

You will receive an email notification for each contact form response. All responses will be listed in the Feedback section of your WordPress Admin. You can customize the email address to which the notifications will be sent.

Check out the gallery below for more details.

If you have the Akismet plugin installed and activated and have an active subscription, every form submission will be checked for spam.

Add redirections and HTML email templates to the contact Form

When you submit a form, Jetpack will display a message that your message was successfully submitted. If you want to redirect to another page instead, you can install this Jetpack add-on on your site:
42U Jetpack Booster.

Customize the Submit button

Once you’ve inserted a contact form into one of your posts or pages, you can customize the title of the Submit button by adding a submit_button_text parameter to the shortcode, like so:

[contact-form submit_button_text='YOUR CUSTOM SUBMIT BUTTON TEXT HERE'][contact-field label='Name' type='name' required='1'/][contact-field label='Email' type='email' required='1'/][contact-field label='Website' type='url'/][contact-field label='Comment' type='textarea' required='1'/][/contact-form]

Customize the Notification emails

Jetpack’s Form Builder allows you to customize the fields you add to the contact form, and also offers an option to change the subject of the email sent to you after each form submission.

You can add tokens to the subject field, like {city}, and Jetpack will replace the token with the value of the “City” form field (case insensitive).
