Important – Please Read

This custom-made tool is a step-by-step wizard that helps you easily generate shortcodes to insert contact forms into your WordPress content.

If this is your first time using this tool, or if it's been a while, or you're unsure what you're doing, then you should read the Guidelines/FAQ section before using the wizard.

Step 1 - Main Recipient

When a visitor submits your contact form, who should the email notification go to?

You must enter the name of the person or organisation below, along with the destination email address.



Step 2 - Copy (BCC) Recipient

You can may also want a second party to receive a copy of the email notification. The main recipient will not be aware of this copy unless you tell them.

This is optional.



Step 3 - Email Subject Line

When the submitted contact form arrives in the recipient's inbox, what should the subject line of the email be?


Step 4 - Choose Additional Fields

By default, the contact form will ask for the visitor's name and email address, and offer a text box for them to enter a message.

You can also choose to include any of the additional fields listed below by ticking the boxes.




Review Your Details

The details you have entered are shown below. Please check and amend if necessary, before generating your shortcode.









Success!

The shortcode for your contact form has been generated and automatically copied to your clipboard for pasting... pretty cool, huh?

Now you can immediately go back to WordPress and simply paste it anywhere in your content.

You can view your shortcode in the box below, and you can use the button underneath if you need to copy it again.

Happy pasting and happy posting!

Guidelines / FAQ Section

What is a "Shortcode"?
Don't worry, it's dead simple. A shortcode is simply a special chunk of text that you can paste anywhere into your WordPress content.

When a visitor loads the page, the shortcode details are 'automagically' processed to perform an action. In this case, the action is to configure and display an email contact form on the page for the visitor to fill in and submit.
When should I use this generator / What's the point?
You should use this generator whenever you want visitors to send details or a message directly from a WordPress web page or blog post.

It's especially handy for visitors who don't have immediate access to email on the device they're using. They can simply put in their details and a message, then just hit 'Send'... and then the recipient(s) get a notification sent to their email Inbox.
Where will the resulting contact form send emails to?
That's entirely up to you.

Simply use the wizard to configure the form settings, including who/where the email notification(s) should go to, and those settings will become part of the generated shortcode for you to paste into WordPress.
What configuration options are available?
You must enter the name and email address of the person/organisation who should receive the email; these are the only required fields for you to generate a form.

You can also add the name and email of an additional person/organisation who should receive a copy (kinda like a BCC email), as well as a custom subject line for the email.
What fields are available to the visitor on the generated contact form?
By default, the visitor will be presented with fields to enter their own name, email address, and a message. You can also add fields to capture their organisation's name, and/or their contact telephone number, and/or post code.
What if I need to capture more information, or provide additional guidance?
To keep this tool easy, generic, and team/task-agnostic, you can't add more fields or customise field labels/text. However, you can simply include WordPress/page content above the form shortcode to ask the visitor to include additional details in the provided message field.

In other words, just put any necessary blurb immediately above the spot where you paste the shortcode. There are no character limits on the message field anyway, so the visitor can be encouraged to provide as many extra details as you would like them to.
Where should I paste the shortcode once I've generated it?
You can paste the shortcode anywhere you like within the WordPress content editor panel. However, it's usually best in most cases to put it at the bottom of your content... as submitting the form will take the visitor away from the page before they've had the chance to read anything below the form.
