How to add Blogger Contact Form in Contact us page

How to add Blogger Contact Form in Contact us page

t’s a frustrating job when I try to add contact form in my blogger contact us page. Since, by default blogger only provides a widget to add contact form in your side bar therefore you need some coding techniques to add it inside your contact us page. However you can find those coding by searching on internet but for me the problem arises when my submit button was not working. All of my fields are working fine except submit button. It was the most frustrating time that I had ever faced. I worked for 2 hours to add that contact form in a page but at last the result was noting. At last I thought of adding my own contact form instead of using blogger’s form and then I found a way to add a perfect working blogger contact form in contact us page.

Before learning the trick to add contact form inside of your contact us page lets learn to add it in the sidebar.
Note: In this post I am going to show you 3 different ways to add blogger contact us form in a separate contact us page therefore guys you can use this table of content to directly jump into any of the steps you want to follow.

2. How to add blogger contact form inside contact us page

The contact form that I am going to add inside of my blogger contact us page is provided by a third-party website  foxyform. Just go to that link and create a form.
So, the question is how to create a contact form?

Guide to add Blogger Contact form in separate page using kontactr

Kontactr is another similar free tool as foxyform but in kontactr you need to sign up for an account to create a contact form however in foxyform you can add a contact form without creating any account.
Now, let’s get started by creating an account.
Step 1: Create an account at kontactr  just by clicking sign up now button located at the middle of the page and then fill the required details to create an account.

3. Foxyform Vs Kontactr which one is best

i. You do not need to sign up in foxyform to create a contact us form however in kontactr you need to create a account.
ii. Both of the services offer captcha to prevent spamming bots from sending spam emails in your inbox but foxyform offers more advance captcha service then kontactr.
iii. Both of the services offers to customize your contact us form according to your color scheme however kontactr also offers different kinds of buttons that can be added in the sidebar and whenever someone click on the sidebar the contact form pop us instantly.
iv. In kontactr you will also get a contact form url, like mine is http://kontactr.com/user/tirtha1993 which is impossible in foxyform.


However, you can add the default blogger contact form in the sidebar of your blog but I don’t think its good practice to add a contact form in the sidebar. Since, you need some coding to add that form inside of contact us page and to replace that issue I used foxyform as an alternative of default contact us form.
Guys, this is an updated post and I have added kontactr as another method to add Blogger Contact Form in Contact us page therefore guys if you find this post useful please share this post with other budding bloggers so that they can also learn to add a working contact form in blogger.
