Test it Out
Once the plugin is installed and activated, Get in touch can be found on the sidebar menu section, navigate your way to the dashboard, Here there would be an overview for the plugin, go through it for a better understanding. We then have to navigate our way to ‘Create Form’ where in we enter the contact details that would be provided to us, under the create form, the details would be as follows.
- First we need to enter the header text that applies to the contact page we have created in the text box and then click on ‘Save header text’ button.
- The next text box would hold the Address for the contact page, once the address is entered here we need to hit the ‘Save Address’ button.
- The next section would hold the map details, here we need to enter the co-ordinates for the map from the Google Maps, the title of the location that is marked and also the zoom level for the map on scroll of it.
- Next there would be a section called the ‘Contact form’ where there would be several fields like name, phone, company, etc. From here we need to drag the relevant fields for our website and place it on the right side (empty side) of the section. We now have to hit on the ‘Save Contact Form’ button.
Now we would be discussing about the settings that have to be taken care of. These settings are referred to as ‘Global Settings’.
First, there would be a set of checkboxes that enables/disables many of the features for the contact form we are going to create. The features would be as follows. Among these check those boxes that are relevant to your website.
- Whether the Contact form should hide after success.
- Whether the Contact form labels should be displayed.
- Whether the placeholder for each of the fields added.
- Whether the Contact form loader should be enabled.
- Whether a mail has to be sent to the user.
- Whether we want to save the user details who contacted us.
Now, there are a series of data that would be required for the mail redirection on successful request.
- A subject field that holds the purpose of contact.
- The mail id of the sender (the mail id to which all the user requests should be redirected.
- The name of the mail sender that appears in the acknowledgement mail that is sent once the user makes a request.
- The message that goes in the acknowledgement mail that is sent to the user.
Now comes the Requests section that would contain all the requests made by the users, This would be a way to keep an account on the number of requests that are made.
