    Contact form in Tumblr Sidebar

    Asked by Jason Zimmerman on January 19, 2012 at 11:25 AM

    Hey. Everything was working until I tried to create the Tumblr contact sidebar using the following JotForm link and instructions. I can't contact Tumblr for help yet because I'm not comprehending the JotForm end.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://secure.jotform.com/jsform/20100800218"></script>

    which will be going here: 


    If you want the contact form to appear in your sidebar and not just as a post;

    Tag the post 'contact' Then go to Customise > Pages > Add New Set the page URL as '/contact' Use the option to set up the page as a 'Custom Redirect' to this URL; http://MYBLOGNAME.tumblr.com/con... Then check the box 'Add a link to this page' and make sure it says 'Contact'

    You'll now see your post appear in your sidebar.



    Here is how far I got, using these partial/updated instructions I just made.

    --Log in to Tumblr, go to your Dashboard and open your Tumblr page.

    --Click the "Customize" tab

    --Click "Pages," then "Add a page."

    --On the dropdown menu where it says "Standard Layout," choose "Redirect."


    That's as far as I got. I can't tag the post here, but I'm hoping I could find this redirect page later, edit it, and add the "contact" tag like it says in the current JotForm instructions.

    The redirect page on Tumblr has "page URL: http://mytumblerpage.tumblr.com"  ... where I'm assuming I add "contact" to the URL. Also on this redirect page is "redirect to" and "show a link to this page." (3 boxes total.)

    Not sure what to correctly add from JotForm. Once I get this down, I can try contacting Tumblr. Googling any of this has not helped. Sorry for the bother, and thank you. --jz

    Hello Jason,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    If you are looking for an option to add the Contact link to the Tumblr Sidebar, please follow the next steps:

    --Log in to Tumblr, go to your Dashboard and open your Tumblr page.

    --Click the "Customize" tab

    --Click "Pages," then "Add a page."




    I am not sure if that is possible to show full Contact form in the Sidebar.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know.
