I need to make several contact forms for my WP site, but I do not want to resort to plugins for this, as this seems 'messy' and inefficient.
I also want full control over the styling of the form.
Where should I look? Is it a question of adding the right PHP code to my functions.php? I also assume I can't put the PHP data in the html section of a WP 'page'.. do I need to make a static .php page and call on that in WP?
I have tried to google this subject, but haven't really found a clear answer (many old articles, or WP plugin suggestions..) Apologies if this thread is redundant.
Thanks for any help!
