How To Add Contact Form (Contact Us Page) in Blogger?

Adding a contact us form in Blogger is a tedious task as it does not support plugins like WordPress.

What most of the Blogspot bloggers does is to seek the help of third-party sites (foxyform, jotform, 123contactform, etc.).

As I said earlier, it is possible to get third-party codes to be inserted in new pages like a walk in the park. Yet, the official contact form is far better than those.


The Benefits of Official Blogger Form

  1. You will get the message as soon as one sends it. And, the deliverability is 100% as well.
  2. The simple interface makes it easy for the visitors to contact you.
  3. If you know Cascade Style Sheet (CSS) language, it will be easy for you to customize the form as per your liking.
  4. The entire page will not get reloaded for sending the message.

I have divided this tutorial into three sections, adding the contact gadget, hiding it and implementing the official code in a new page.

Part 1: Adding the Contact Gadget

Follow the steps given below to add a contact us gadget on your blog.

Step 1: Visit blogger.com and log in to your account. If you are running multiple blogs, you need to choose the desired blog from the list.

Step 2: Click on Layout from the left sidebar to get an option to add gadgets.

Then, click Save to retain the changes.

After the third step, you will not see Contact widget on your blog.
