When you are working on your WordPress website, you will probably end up needing to edit the Contact page. If you used Inspirations for your initial website, most likely this page is filled with stock information. This stock information can be easily replaced with your contact information to ensure your visitors can easily contact you. The Post and Page Builder Plugin for WordPress makes this a breeze, and the following article will walk you through the steps needed to accomplish this.

Opening the Page for Editing

Editing the Contact Us Page

The contact form on the left side of the grid is for your visitors to fill out. They will be prompted for their name, email, subject, and message body. But, maybe you want a different form.

Change the Contact Form Displayed

If you would like to change the form that your users fill out, start by deleting the weForms short code shown on the page, then click the Add Contact Form button above the toolbar. Choose your desired form in the dropdown and a new shortcode will appear on the page.

Contact Us Page FAQs

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 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.

Does weForms have Anti-Spam protection?

weForms includes reCaptcha spam production but it is not enabled out-of-the-box. reCaptcha API credentials are unique for every website so you’ll have to set it up yourself.

That said, adding reCaptcha to a form is easy with weForms. Once your API credentials are set up, a single click on each form is all you need to add protection.

    • Hi Michael-

      Sorry to hear about the trouble! From what you’ve described, it’s tough to guess what might be going on, but we’ll be happy to take a closer look if you can start a new Support Forums post with some more details.

  2. I am using the WEDGE template. The contact page does not include the contact form in place for the visitor to fill out. How can I add the contact form.

    • Hi Dave-
      By default, your contact page will have a shortcode provided by the weForms plugin included on the page, however you can add any form from weForms by navigating to weForms > All Forms and copying the shortcode from that list, then pasting it into your page. If you’re still having trouble, start a new Support Forums post so we can take a closer look for you.

  3. Hi there!
    Can you let me know how and where to change the auto-reply message the visitor receives when they contact me? I looked but can’t seem to find it.
    Thanks so much for your time
