Contact Forms

A contact form is a great way of encouraging your visitors to get in touch without you having to publish your private email address. Keeping it safe from spammers.

How do I add a contact form to my WordPress website?

Adding a contact form to your Ecenica WordPress blog or site is easy with the use of a plugin. A number of popular WordPress themes already bundle a contact form plugin during install, so your website may already have the contact form plugin ready to go.

We recommend using Contact Form 7 a popular plugin which has been around for a number of years.

What mail settings should I use in Contact Form 7?

We recommend the following settings for email delivery:

  • To: The email address you want to send contact form messages to. This should be your company email, for example,
  • From: We recommend setting this as the same email address as To.
  • Additional Headers: Use Reply-To: [your-email] to use the address your contact form user has supplied. This means when you click ‘Reply’ in your email app or Webmail the ‘To’ field will be pre-filled to the user who contacted you.
