Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating and adding a basic contact form to posts and pages, part of WordPress Plugins: Contact Forms (2014).
…Before you can add a form to a post or a…page with Contact Form 7, you have to create the form itself.…This is done pretty much the same way you would create a new post or page.…You go to the Admin panel, find Contact, and then you select Add New.…But, if this is the first time you're using Contact Form 7, and you…haven't created a new contact form yet, you don't have to create a new one.…You simply click on Contact, or on Contact Forms.…You are taken to the index that shows you all the available contact forms.…
And here, you see that when you install and activate Contact Form…7 a default contact form is created for you, called Contact Form One.…So let's take a look at this form.…I'll click on the form name itself to go into the editor.…And here you have all the editing capabilities of this particular form.…At the top you have the name of the form…that you can edit just like any other content within WordPress.…You have the short code for this particular…form that will allow us display the form.…You also have the form itself, laid out in HTML as I mentioned earlier.…
