    OK, I used the installer and activated the Contact plugin. Great. So far.

    Now what? How do I create a Contact form on a new WP page?

    Where are the instructions for this?

    It's pretty straight forward.
    1. Find Contact Form 7 in your admin sidebar.
    2. By clicking on it, a new page will appear with all there is to CF7. 3. From there you can click new and start designing your new form.
    4. By naming your form, you will be presented with a tag to be inserted in you page, post, sidebar whatever..
    5. Just paste the tag in whatever post/page you want it to be displayed in and publish/save your content.
    6. View the page/post in your browser and you should see your new form.

    That's about it for starters.
    For the rest of the issues that may arise, search the forum. there's oodles of information at your disposal.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Mohammad

    Hmmm that doesn't seem to work for me. It just shows the tag?

    Remember, the tag is at the top of the page, not the area where the code is being generated. The tag for me is a bright brown color. I click, copy and paste, and it all works very smoothly.

    I must be missing something here that's huge. I created a form with name, email, address, phone, etc but when I test the form it doesn't send the information, just an email that says [your message]. What I need it to do is submit the information a person would be putting into the form fields. Is this possible or do I need a different kind of code/plugin for that?

    If you create custom fields, they should be in the following format (notice the <label> and </label> tags?

    <p><label>Your City
    [text your-city]</label></p>

    <p><label>Your State
    [text your-state]</label></p>

    then in your Message body area you just add the following:

    [your-city]
    [your-state]

    That should then submit the user information.
