Contact forms are one of the key components that allow websites to function smoothly. They filter out spam and deliver real feedback from real people directly to website owners.
Utilizing your contact form allows you to gather visitor data such as their name, email address, phone number and more; helping improve customer services.
Elementor’s Form Widget
No website should be without a contact form – they provide an invaluable opportunity to generate leads, foster relationships with customers and partners, report site issues directly from users and more.
Elementor’s built-in Form Widget makes creating contact forms simple and effortless. Simply drag and drop this widget onto any section to add one; further customize its style through editing its settings.
Change the text and button color for “Submit.” Additionally, customize error messages that users will encounter upon submitting your form.
MetForm is an easy and popular way to export form submissions into Google Sheets. Gravity Forms provides forms specifically designed for business data management – pricing starts at just $59/year per project!
Elementor’s Form Settings
Elementor’s form widget features various settings depending on the type of contact form you wish to create. A basic contact form consists of text, email address, captcha and submit button fields; these should suffice in gathering visitor data. However, for other types of forms like admission forms, booking forms or event forms you would require more form fields.
The Settings tab allows you to specify what will happen after submission of your form. You can choose to send their submission as an email message or redirect them to another page on your site, specify CC/BCC recipients and add metadata as necessary.
Elementor allows you to customize both the content of an email message and design the form itself, as well as change its default email template sent from WordPress for your website. Furthermore, Elementor lets you set your form so it only accepts submissions from logged in or registered users, thus guaranteeing only this way can submit forms.
Elementor’s Email Settings
Elementor’s email settings enable you to determine who gets notified when someone submits your form, including who receives copies and BCCs as well as which messages get sent after submission of forms.
This message may include information such as who filled out your form, why they did it and a link to its completion. Depending on your business needs, you may also display contact details of your organization in this message.
If you are having issues with Elementor form submissions, the first thing you should do is verify they are working (meaning submissions appear in your database). This can be accomplished by submitting a sample form from your website and seeing if its form notification email arrives; if not, there may be an issue with either your SMTP settings or plugin configuration which needs addressing; deactivate any plugins which conflict with them for solution.
Elementor’s Design Settings
Elementor’s frontend editing feature makes it easy to fine-tune your design for different screen resolutions and device sizes, including hiding sections or widgets from desktops and showing them up on tablets or mobiles, or changing their width according to mobiles’ screen widths.
Elementor makes this possible through its global theme settings. When you save a change to a global setting, it automatically syncs across pages or elements using similar settings.
With just one click, for example, you can set the secondary color of H2 headings to match other buttons across your site – fonts, typography, images and form fields are also customizable with just a single click! Once complete, these settings can be saved as templates so they can be applied across any page or post at any time – you can also design custom templates yourself or use pre-designed kits available online.
