• H2GD Part 41: How to create a simple contact form

    With the right plugin, creating a simple contact form should be almost as easy as typing

    display contact form here


    Over on bobbingwidewebdesign.com I reviewed 6 Contact Form plugins. Today, since my Gravity Forms Licence had expired again, I tried Ninja Forms as well.

    It took me a while to get a working version. I eventually succeeded when I lowered my sights. In the end the results weren’t much better than the simple contact form that comes as standard with my oik plugin.

    How to create a simple contact form using oik

    1. Install and activate the oik base plugin
    2. Visit oik options > options and set a value for your email address: Email /..
    3. Create some content e.g. a new post or a page
    4. Somewhere within the content type

    5. Save

There, that wasn’t hard now was it?
