Hi, this is Brad with Firstsiteguide.com and in this video I’ll be showing you how to add a page. Specifically, a “Contact us” page. So the first thing that we are going to want to do is install a Contact Form plugin. So we are going to go over here on the left hand side to the plugin section and click “Add new.” I have one in mine that we are going to use, so we are going to search for it.
And it is called “Contact Form 7,” so type that in, and then click “Search plugins.” Here it is at the top, so we are going to click the “Install now” link right here, and then click “Ok.” So once WordPress has installed our new plug-in, go ahead and click “Activate plugin” link right here. Okay great, so we have installed the “Contact Form 7” plugin and activated it. Now you’ll see a new section over here on the left called “Contact.”
We’re going to hover over that, and then click on “Contact forms.” And specifically, what we are going to do is we’re going to look for the “Short code” section here, the second section. And this is the code that we are going to be using to add into our page. So go ahead and highlight it and then click to copy it. Head over to the pages section and click “Add new.”
So, for our page title we are going to put “Contact Us.” And then down below I’m going to put a little bit of an intro paragraph to tell them what to do and then we’re going to paste in our short code. So I’m going to type Enter your information below to get in contact with us. And then, I’m going to paste in our contact form short code. Which is basically going to put that bundle of code onto this page. I’m going to go over to the right hand side here and click “Publish.”
And I am going to hover over “View page,” right click, and open it up in a new tab. And what that’s going to show us is the “Contact us” page that we just put together. So here is our intro paragraph and the contact form, where someone can put in their name, their email, a subject, and their message. And then click “Send” to get in contact with us.
