Create a Contact Form for your site

If you want to add a contact form to your OptimizePress websites you have a range of options.

We don’t have an integrated contact form element, so you will need to use one of the methods below:

Although our Optin Box element is designed for capturing subscribers information and adding it to your chosen autoresponder or mailing list service, these forms can also be used as a contact form.

1. Use our Optin Box element

Add your opt-in form to your page, and select the “Email Data” option for the integration type and then complete the fields below to ensure that your form information is sent to your email address

If you need to add additional fields you can add them using the “Add Field” option at the bottom of the window, but please note our optin box element currently only supports single-line text fields

Please note: There is no Captcha functionality for our optin box element so you may receive increased spam from bots visiting your site if you use our optin box element as a contact form

2. Use an external plugin (Clean and Simple Contact Form)

There is a wide range of plugins which you can use with OptimizePress to add a contact form to your page.

1. To install this plugin go to Plugins > Add New and search for “Clean and Simple Contact Form”

2. Install this pluginWe have tested with a plugin called “Clean and Simple Contact Form” which appears to work well with OptimizePress

3. You will find the options for the plugin within Settings > Contact form on the WordPress Menu

4. Follow the prompts on the page to setup the contact form settings.

5. To insert the contact form into your page, use the “HTML/Shortcode” element on a LiveEditor page and add the shortcode for the form :


3.  Other Plugin Options

We are continually testing with other plugins and there are many which should work fine with OptimizePress – just be wary of any plugins which require Javascript for the form as these can sometimes conflict with our LiveEditor

The following contact form plugins are known to work well with OptimizePress:

Gravity Forms
Contact Form 7

There may be others but these are the only ones we have reports on that are working fine, but there are likely very few contact form plugins that do not work with OptimizePress. Any of these plugins which use ShortCode should work fine. 

Each of the above plugins has some extensions created by their respective plugin authors, as well as some created by 3rd party developers. We have not tested all of these extensions and can not guarantee that they will all work flawlessly.

If you should encounter any issues with a 3rd party plugin not working, we would suggest first to reach out to the plugin author for assistance before you contact our support team as we are generally not able to assist with fixing code within other plugins.
