[resolved] Jetpack CustomForm on home page (5 posts)

    I'm wondering if there's a way to add a contact form on my home page? I created a form to allow people to RSVP for an event and would really like to add it to the home page to help encourage people to fill it out.

    You could create a static front page including the Contact form, as explained here:

    You could also copy the Contact form shortcode into a new Text WIdget in your sidebar.

    I hope this helps.

    Well I don't use static pages, but customize my index.php. But I will try adding a custom widget and put it in the location that I wanted it to be.

    So I went into functions, created a new sidebar then called the sidebar into my index.php.

    Then I placed the shortcode into the custom widget in the Admin section and the form shows up.
    Only problem now is that it says the information was sent...but I never get the email.

    Could you check if the message appears in the Feedbacks menu, in your dashboard? You'll want to check the "Spam" tab as well, just to make sure the message wasn't filtered out as Spam.
