Summary of this tutorial:

For creating your contact form, you would first want to decide on a form plugin. For that purpose we recommend WPForms:

With the plugin selected you would want to add it under Plugins, Add New. Search for WPForms and click to install and activate the plugin.

When starting with WPForms you would go under WPForms, Add New to begin creating a form. Add the name for the form and select Simple Contact Form as that is what we are wanting to add to the site.

You will be given options for different fields you can add or you can leave it with the default fields as they are already set up with some of the standard fields with a contact form.

Each has some customization options on the left once selected for letting you change the title of it and a few other options.

You can add the shortcode to a post or page by visiting the page editor and there will be a new add form button. Select the form you created and then click add form to insert the shortcode for you.

Should you want the form in a widget you can use the WPForms widget that allows you to select the form for you to add and then save.

    Hi, this has been extremely useful and was so easy to follow. I am new to WP, never built a website before. Please let me know how to activate the anti-spam honeypot. I have the selection ticked but still, ain't working. Not sure if this was supposed to ask the user to confirm they, not a robot. Please excuse my ignorance. Thank you for the videos, find them so valuable.

    I made this and when someone sends a message to me the box is mint green with white text saying their message was sent but you can barely read it. I don't see an option to change the color box on the conformations tab. Please, someone, inform me of what I can do to fix this issue.

    Your videos have been very helpful in starting my blog. I am wanting to automate newsletter signup confirmation emails, blog posted notification emails, and weekly emails highlighting the most popular or new posts emails. What do you recommend? Do you already have a video for that? I can't seem to find one.
