Contact Forms are an everyday element that is needed in our website. We need forms to collect data from our visitors. If you don’t know how to create one then this post is for you. By default WordPress won’t provide you a contact form, you have to create it manually. 

In this post, I will show you how to create a contact form in WordPress. After reading the post you will be able to create one by yourself.

At first, go to your WordPress Dashboard and click on ‘Add New’ from the ‘Plugins’ menu. 

Then search for ‘Fluent Forms’ and install & activate the plugin. 

Step 2: Create Your Contact Form 

It’s time to create your contact form, click on the ‘New Form’ from the ‘Fluent Forms’ Menu. 

Then you need to choose a form template. As we are going to create a contact form, we will choose the ‘Contact Form’ template.

If you want, you can edit any field option by clicking the edit button. Then configure it from the right side. 

Now write the name of your contact form, from the top left. 

Click on the ‘Save Form’ button from the top right corner.
