    I am wondering how people make these fancy contactpages.

    I downloaded a very nice plugin (pxs mail), made a nice empty page (http://vollemaan.net/mail/) but I have NO CLUE how to get the mailform in there.

    Ehrm....help? ;-)

  2. Login to your WP admin interface, go to Write/Write Page, and create a page with the mail form quicktag in it. If PXSMail isn't working for you, try WP-ContactForm: http://ryanduff.net/wp-plugins/wp-contactform/

    I did all that and the plugin says: just insert <!––mail form ––> everywhere you want the form to appear. I just get to see <!––mail form ––>, no form. :-D

    I'll give Ryan's a spin. Thanks.

    *update*

    Ryan's contactthingie does the trick, thanks a lot :-)

    I am experiencing an interesting issue with my contact page. I am using WP 1.5 and Ryan Duff's contact form plug-in. Whenever I activate the plugin my Pages list (called Contents on my site) dissapear on all of the Pages I've added. The Contents are available on the index page but not on any page after that.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, and this I am certain will demonstrate the low level of my experience with WP, how would I get Home to show up under my Contents menu in the sidebar? I have seen sites that include Home so I know it can be done... I guess I lack the skill to do it.

    Help!?!

    Krugeri - hi there
    Im as new as you are so dont trust all my advice.
    You seem to be having a similar problem to one I had with your Pages not showing till you "uses" the site. I dont know what it was and none came to tell me why - but I solved it with an upgrade to 1.5.1.
    BTW - an interesting site idea.
    Not sure what you mean by the Home page. But if you create a Page called Home - it will show as Home in your "Page List" - if you want that to always be your Home Page on site opening you need anothe Plugin called Static Front Page : http://www.semiologic.com/projects/static-front/
    This makes it so when your site opens - the Home page opens up first with all your normal sidebar stuff as menu.
    Keep well.

    Murry!

    Thank you for the suggestion. Upgrade went well and the links do in fact show up on all pages now. Thanx again. It was with much hesitation that I went into upgrading but was shocked to see how easy it was. I backed up everything and then followed the instructions on the CODEX and everything looks to be working now.

    Thanx again!

    p.s. Thanx for the BTW. ;-)

    And don't forget, there is also good information at http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages for hosting contact information on WordPress.
