Developers plugin page
- Login to your wordpress dashboard.
- Go to ‘Plugins’, ‘Add New’ then search for ‘Quick Contact Form’.
- Follow the on screen instructions.
- Activate the plugin.
- Go to the plugin ‘Settings’ page to edit your email address.
- Edit any of the form settings if you wish.
- Drag and drop the ‘Quick Contact Form’ widget to your sidebar.
- To use the form in your posts and pages add the shortcode
- To use the form in your theme files use the code
<?php echo do_shortcode('[qcf]'); ?>.
If you wany more than on form on your site just create a new form on the setup page and save.
- How do I change the labels and captions?
Go to your plugin list and scroll down until you see ‘Quick Contact Form’ and click on ‘Settings’. Select the ‘Form Settings’, ‘Error Messages’ or ‘Reply options’ tabs. Change the settings and Save (quite important this last bit).
- What’s the shortcode?
- How do I change the colours?
Go to the plugin settings page and click on styling
- Can I add more fields?
- Why not?
Well OK yes you can add more fields if you want but you are going to have to fiddle about with the php files which needs a bit of care an attention. Everything you need to know is in the wordpress codex.
- It’s all gone wrong!
If it all goes wrong, just reinstall the plugin and start again. If you need help then contact me.
- Does anybody read these things?
I did, and so have you. Maybe there will be more, who knows.
- Have you got any pictures of cute kittens?
No but I’ve inherited 2 ancient, deaf and grumpy Persians.
It works, it’s easy to setup and use and Aerin is a really cool guy who never lets his users down.
Supports all languages and RTL
Oh so easy – and it works perfectly!!!
I have just installed the Quick Contact Form plugin on two sites and it is amazing. So easy to configure with an array of options. Top marks to this developer. It is a great tool for landing page analysis as you can can configure really quickly, a seperate form for each page and when the form is submitted it reports which page the form submission was made from. Invaluable!! My marketing guy is well impressed as am I.
One of the best plugins in the wordpress repository.. in my humble opinion.
I submitted a question to Graham, the developer, and he came back with an answer in under 5 mins… so brilliant support too!
A fantastic form maker – not too much – not too little.
Very light on resources with a great author. I had a problem with an external call in the code – Graham, this plugin’s author had a fix for me in less than a day.
Simple yet effective. what more can be said.
