Create our contact form in WordPress
Go through the WordPress menu and you will see Forminator being added as a new link at the bottom.
Hover over the Forminator tab and you will see several other features and functionalities of Forminator, but what we want to achieve in this guide is to create a contact form.
Click on the Form link.
As you can see, there are different types of forms you can create using Forminator.
We will be creating our contact us Form In WordPress here using the premade contact us form that Forminator has provided. You can also create yours from scratch using the Blank form.
Click contact us>>continue
Give your form a name, preferably Contact us. You can always edit this detail at a later time
Now you can see the premade fields that Forminator plugin has generated
Go ahead and edit them to suit your specific needs.
For example, let’s delete the first name and leave it in Name. All you have to do here is to delete the “First” text.
To do so, go to the settings (gear) icon in front of the field and click. Then from the drop-down menu, click edit field
Go ahead and edit your text in the field.
Go ahead and apply the same to any other text that you want to edit in this form.
Before we continue, let’s quickly check up the settings tab
Click the settings link
If you leave this as optional, it means filling that particular field on the form will not be mandatory. If you choose the required option, then, the filled must be filled out before the form can be submitted successfully.
Required fields are indicated with the red asterisk sign while no sign will be seen on the optional fields
Styling and visibility options are not so important right now, so I will skip them for another tutorial article.
After successful editing on each form field, click the apply button.
