    I am trying to add a contact me page to my site. I downloaded the
    wp-contact form plugin. Can someone help me figure out how to get this on the page? I see it in my settings but cant figure out how to get it on the page. Is there an easier plugin, or is this an extension of another plugin? Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried the following instructions. I did see the box for showing quicktags and it is on but dont see the qicktags. Maybe I just dont know where to look. I also tried the copy and paste without the backticks and it didnt work. I pasted to the html view of the page, is this right?

    WP Contact Form is a drop in form for users to contact you. It can be implemented on a page or a post. It currently works with WordPress 1.5+
    == Installation ==
    1. Upload to your plugins folder, usually wp-content/plugins/
    2. Activate the plugin on the plugin screen
    3. Go to Options -> Contact Form and update the fields with your information
    4. Create a post or a page and press the Contact Form quicktag where you want the form to be. If you don't see the Contact Form quicktag, you can alternatively copy and paste <!--contact form--> minus the backticks where you want it to appear.
    == Frequently Asked Questions ==
    = How come I don't see the Contact Form quicktag? =
    * You have the Show quicktag checkbox on Options -> Contact Form turned off
    * You're not using the default set of quicktags for the editor
    * Its a Glitch
    Solution: Copy and paste <!--contact form--> minus the backticks where you want the form to appear

    There have been a few posts the last few days about this plugin not working. I believe the author said he was working on it. Can't be sure - I didn't pay much attention because I use my own contact form.

    if there is another plugin or any other aplication that will work I could use that. Im not picky. Just want some way to put a contact me form on my site where my subscribers can email me.

    This one is listed in the most popular and highest rated, though I haven't tried it

    Currently, I am using "Secure and accessible PHP contact form"

    it works very well.
