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.).
Blogger Contact Form Page But today, you are going to learn how to add official contact us page in Blogger.
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
- You will get the message as soon as one sends it. And, the deliverability is 100% as well.
- The simple interface makes it easy for the visitors to contact you.
- If you know Cascade Style Sheet (CSS) language, it will be easy for you to customize the form as per your liking.
- 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.
Step 3: You can see an Add a Gadget link on the main panel on the right side. Clicking on it will bring you to a list of gadgets.
Step 4: Then, choose More gadgets from the left side. Now, you will see Contact Form. Just add the same.
Part 2: Hiding the Gadget
Now, you are going to learn how to hide the contact gadget.
Step 1: We need to play with the template section here. So, click on Templates from the left menu.
Step 2: Then, click on Edit HTML and you will be provided with the whole code of your blog in a large field.
Step 3: Search for ]]></b:skin> and place the following code just before it.
display: none !important;
Then, click Save to retain the changes.
After the third step, you will not see Contact widget on your blog.
Part – 3: Adding Contact Form to a Page
You will get the customized official blogger contact form code here to be added to be shown on a separate page.
Step 1: Go to Pages and click on New page.
Step 2: Paste the following code into the HTML post editor after removing everything in it.
