    Contact Forms for an HTML Website

    Asked by Chris Voeltner  on March 29, 2017 at 03:35 PM

    Hi there!


    I wanted to ask if I was to use your forms, could we create a simple contact form that could be accessible if we put a link to the form on our website, code it to open in a specific sized window, someone fills it out, and then it sends that response to a specified email?


    Basically, we have a church website that doesn't have the ability to create contact forms, so I'm looking third-party. This site seems great, I just want to make sure if I was to say "Contact me" (someone clicks the contact me underlined text) and it opens your form that I've specified to go to me@church.org.


    Would this work properly?

    Thank you for contacting JotForm Support.


    You can easily create a contact form using our form builder, and we have a number of templates available to help you get started, and you can then customize them as you wish. Take a look at our 

    Contact Form Templates


    As for adding the form to your website, you can either embed the form into your website (follow this guide), or you can add a hyperlink somewhere in your website to redirect to your JotForm form, opening it in a custom sized window would have to be coded in your own website, and not in your JotForm form. To add a link to your form, simply add this HTML code to your website:

    <a target="_blank" href="FORM_URL">Whatever Text you would like as the link text</a>

    Make sure you replace FORM_URL with your JotForm form URL. 


    Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further help.
