FAQs About How to Edit the Contact Us Page

How do I change the Auto-Reply Message the visitor receives when they contact me?

Modifying the auto-reply is going to be a little different depending on which Forms plugin you’re using. If you’re using WPForms, use these instructions. If you’re using weForms, use these instructions.

How do I change edit the email address to which submissions from the contact form are sent?

This will depend on your Forms plugin. Generally speaking, most forms plugins will default to the Administration Email Address of your website, found in Settings -> General. Most forms plugins will let you override this, however. If you’re using weForms, you can set the email address for each form individually by navigating to All Forms -> [Form Name] -> Edit -> Notifications and modifying the “To” address. By default, this will be a variable called {admin_email}, but you can change it to any email address you need.
