    Hi Lynn,

    I'm after putting a "contact form" on the Navbar itself not a page.

    Is this possible?
    regards,

    The navbar just has links to pages, posts or categories. There is no room there for a form. Standard practice is to have the contact form on it's own page.

    Ah I see, so once I have the page there in the NAVbar. How do I add the actual contact form details on the page itself. For example name, email etc in the page?

    So basically just need to have in the contact page:

    Your Name:
    Your E-mail:


    You Message:


    Submit Button:

    Many thanks for your helo.

    Regards,

    Easiest way is to use a plug-in like contact form 7 or Easy Contact form. The plug-in will create the page for you.

    I thought I found my answer. I am not understanding how to build the page either. I thought Socrates had a contact page already. Why would you have to use a plug in? Isee the comment page on my dashboard, but I don't understands it. Help Please. Is there a tutorial or video or something? Thanks

    Hi mrizzotto,

    So you have two options for a contact form; there is our built-in form, or you can use a plug-in. If you prefer a plug-in we recommend using Contact Form 7. If you want to use the built-in form, go to:

    Hope this helps you,
