Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a contact form, part of WordPress DIY: Showcasing Photography.
- A must-have feature for any website,…and in particular for business sites,…like this one, is the contact page.…People have to be able to contact you,…either to inquire about services or to hire you,…and that would all be done with a contact page.…So I've created a contact page for the site.…Right now, it's just a standard page.…It has a nice featured image,…it has some contact information,…it has the actual location of the studio,…with an active phone number…that you can click on with your cell phone…to call it directly.…
We have Hours of Operation.…we even have a Google map…that I pasted in directly from Google Maps.…But what's missing is an email address or form.…As I said in the very beginning of the course,…I don't want to put my email address on the site.…There's a very simple reason for that.…You put an email address anywhere on the web,…then you get tons of spam.…The other reason is, when people inquire…about services in particular,…you want to know exactly what they're looking for.…You might even want to redirect mail…
