How to create a Contact page

A contact form allows your readers and visitors to easily reach out to you when they have a question, a problem or simply want to get in touch with you. You’ll receive an email after they send you a message.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to create and customize a contact page and how to include it in your top navigation.

Create a contact form

  1. Open your Blogger Dashboard and go to “Layout”.
  2. Find the “Sidebar” section and add a new gadget by clicking on “+ Add a gadget”.
  3. Select “Contact Form” from the list — it should be fourth from the bottom.
  4. Move the gadget to the very bottom of the Sidebar section.
  5. Save!

  1. In your Blogger Dashboard, from the left menu select “Pages”.
  2. Click on “New Page” and view it as HTML (you’ll find this button after you click on the pencil icon in the formatting menu).
  3. Copy and paste the code below:
    You can contact me here:<br />
    <br />
    <html>
    <head>
    <div class="widget ContactForm" id="custom_ContactForm1">
    <div class="contact-form-widget">
    <div class="form">
    <form name="contact-form">
    <input class="contact-form-name" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-name" name="name" placeholder="Name" size="30" type="text" value="" /><br />
    <input class="contact-form-email" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email" name="email" placeholder="Email" size="30" type="text" value="" /><br />
    <textarea class="contact-form-email-message" cols="25" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email-message" name="email-message" placeholder="Your message" rows="5"></textarea><br />
    <input class="contact-form-button contact-form-button-submit" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-submit" type="button" value="Send!" /><br />
    <div style="text-align: center; width: 100%;">
    <div class="contact-form-error-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-error-message">
    </div>
    <div class="contact-form-success-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-success-message">
    </div>
    </div>
    </form>
    </div>
    </div>
    </div>
    </head>
    </html>
  4. Change the text in brown to anything you want. You can add more text (your email address or social media handles) as well, just make sure you don’t change the code between <html> and </html>.
  5. Save!
