Email addresses are automatically protected from spam harvesters on this site, so it is safe to display an email address in your contact details. In general this is the simplest and most reliable way of providing a contact email.
However some people prefer to use a contact form which does not reveal their personal email address at all. To make this easier we have set up the Very Simple Contact Form plugin, so all you need to do is insert a shortcode into your page.
Just replace email@example.com with the email address you would like the email to be sent to. This email address will not be shown on the contact page.
You can send the same message to multiple email addresses simply by separating them with commas:
If your contact form is at the top of a separate contact page, that’s all you need to do. If your form is at the bottom of a longer page then you should add a further instruction so that when the page refreshes after sending the form, it scrolls to the form position on the page.
[[contact email_to=”firstname.lastname@example.org” scroll_to_form=”true”]]
This is a live example of what the form looks like:
[contact email_to=”email@example.com” scroll_to_form=”true”]
The form on this page is just an example. Although it is a real form, if you click the Submit button, your email will actually be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, which is a publicly available ‘black hole’ for testing emails.« Using Tables Up Undoing Changes »
