weForms – the Best Contact Form Plugin for WordPress

Build Better Websites

When you have a visitor on your website and they wish to contact you, what do you think they are looking for? You may have a phone number, a chat option, a contact form, or a number of other ways for that visitor to contact your company. 

These are all great solutions for providing a communication channel for your visitors, but what makes any of them the easiest solution for your visitors or hopefully, customers that you will support? Everyone is busy, so you want to be sure to accommodate your visitors schedules as best as possible with hopes of converting them into customers. 

This is why email is still the most convenient way to communicate online. It is fast, easy and most of all efficient. So it just makes sense to utilize this communication channel for your online business, right? Not to mention that a contact form does not require your visitor or customer to register, they just fill out the form with their query with little or no effort on their part, and you can respond to them when you are available. Contact forms also let you direct your email properly to the department best suited to answer your visitors query. 

This is where WordPress makes your life easy. Adding a contact form plugin can be done within just a few clicks from search to install. Here at BoldGrid, we recommend weForms, but any contact form plugin will serve your needs.

Setting up a Basic Contact Form

Setting up your first form can be a bit daunting, but here’s an outline of the steps to help you get started. The only requirement is you already have installed the weForms contact form plugin for WordPress, and we are ready to go.

  • In your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to weForms → All Forms

Adding your Contact Form to a Page in WordPress

Adding a form to a page or post in WordPress requires you copy and paste the shortcode. A shortcode is just a way to let WordPress know to run code in the background, and in this case that code is to output a contact form on your front end. 

  • In your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to weForms → All Forms
  • Under the Shortcode column next to the form you just created, copy the entire shortcode. 

Depending on the editor you use in WordPress, the next few steps may be different.
