    Hi guys - a quick and simple question. I have a custom php contact form that I use on another of my sites. I want to use and adapt the php code and call it. In my old site I just bang it on a page, link it and its there.
    In wordpress - whats the best way. I was going to do a php include on a custome "Page" but Pages cant include php - unless Im not reading right.
    Can someone point me at the way to open my contact php page - as an include? or other way - please be clear - my php and WP knowledge is basic. Thanks heaps.

    Pages can include PHP with the help of a page template or a plugin.

    Read the Codex for more info on page templates.

    Or if that doesn't look appealing, you could try installing PHP Exec or RunPHP for instance. With them you can put <?php include(); ?> on your page.

    Have you tried my WordPress Contact Form Plugin?

    Good news is, we're building in modularization so that you can create custom forms. Look for a (planned) update this weekend (hopefully).

    OK - Thanks - Somehow I thought that would be the case.
    OK so Im back to a custom template - urgh :)
    Thanks for the plugin suggestion but - IMHO while plugins solve a problem (i do use them after all) it makes a bit of a hash of the clean integrated approach that WP aspires to be :) instead of further complicating and creating a whole swathe of tangents for folk like me to go down and get lost in. However the forms plug seems a nice idea.
    Thanks

    I'd also love to see the customizable form plugin, Ryan. Hope it's still in the works!
