How to install Contact Form 7

The first step to setting up Contact Form 7 is to install the plugin on your WordPress website. To do so, in your WordPress dashboard, select Plugins > Add Plugin from the menu.

Add New

Then type Contact Form 7 into the search function. Once the Contact Form 7 plugin is displayed, click Install > Activate.

Once it’s activated, you can find the plugin’s functionality in the new Contact area of your WordPress dashboard.

Contact Form 7 menu

How to set up Contact Form 7

Click on Contact > Contact Forms. Here you will see the central administration panel where you can manage multiple contact forms. You will also find the Contact Form 7’s default contact form, labeled Contact Form 1.

Contact Form 1

Contact Form 1 contains all the fields a basic contact form may need. This form is ready to use and can be inserted into any page and post of your website, if you wish (this is covered further on).

Alternatively, you can create your own contact form by selecting Contact > Add New.

Creating a new contact form

Give your new contact form a name, and then scroll down to Form. Here you can edit the new contact form template.

Your template defines the various fields that will appear on your form, as well as the labels that appear next to those fields.

Add New Form

By default, Contact Form 7 adds a number of fields to new forms, including name, email, subject, message and send. More than likely, you will want to keep all of these fields.

However, you may want to add extra fields, depending on your site’s needs. To do this, you can select the appropriate tag-generator button to generate the correct form-tag. For example, to add a URL field, you just click on the URL button (as marked below).

Add URL field

If you want to add a label to your field, you can copy the HTML that accompanies a form-tag from the other fields. For example, when we clicked on the URL button, Contact Form 7 pre-generated the form-tag [url url-935]. We then added the extra HTML for the label, so the final URL field read as:

<label> Your Website URL

        [url url-935] </label>

You can now add as many extra fields as needed for your site’s contact form. Remember to click Save at the bottom of the page when you have finished.

To setup multiple select 

Click on select and multi-select

After filling up all the form details put the insert tag

Select and multi select will be inserted.

warning:For Arabic placeholder will be common we can put common names.

Setting up mail to control email notifications

Any extra fields you add to your contact form are not automatically reflected in the email notification template settings. Therefore, once you have finished customizing the Form, switch to the Mail, tab.

Mail

This is the template for the email you will receive when a contact form is sent. In the To field, check that the email address is correct, as this is where any contact form correspondence will be sent. (Contact Form 7 by default will add the email that is linked to your website).

Scroll down to the Message Body section and add the extra form-tags that you generated for your form. This will ensure that when you receive an email via your contact form, it will display all the information you asked the sender to share.

To add a field to your email template, just copy over the form field from your template. You can also add regular text around your fields. You can see how we did this in the screenshot below:

URL

Again, remember to click on Save once your mail settings are complete.
