This tutorial is continued with full written instructions at http://WordpressVideos.TV Its always a great idea to make it as easy as possible for your subscribers and for your blog visitors to contact you directly. Now, instead of just displaying your email address, which may be picked up by spam bots, and as a result you may end up in a lot of spam, you can also just install a simple contact form to your WordPress blog. In your WordPress dashboard, you can just search for the search term Contact Form, and you will find a lot of suitable WordPress plugins that you can use and install. Now, the first plugin that you see here, WP Contact Form by Ryan Duff, used to be one of the more popular plugins; however, this plugin seems to be rather inactive lately, so another good alternative is Contact Form 7. Now, the names here may all seem very much alike to the new user, so I want you to look for the name of the creator of this plugin, which is Takayuki Miyoshi, alright? So, what you can do is install this Contact Form 7 to your WordPress blog either automatically or manually. Once you have uploaded the plugin you can just activate it, and you will see on your left-hand column a new section here for the contact form. So Im just gonna click on Edit. And theres some basic setup that is required for your contact form. The first, of course, you need to put in your actual email address where you want to receive inquiries and where you want people to send their inquiries to, and then the rest of the fields, basically, you can just leave it as it is if you just want to create a very simple contact form, alright? And once youve updated the contact form settings, you can just copy this code and then go to a page or a, or also on a blog post, and right in the content area here, Im just going to paste that code that we got earlier, cause Im going to save this page and lets take a look at that page to see how a contact form looks like.
