20 Code Snippets for Clean HTML Contact Forms

Several text inputs with accompanying labels and a huge prominent CTA at the end to submit a form and send it to the recipient – usually, a contact form looks exactly like that. And it seems that there are no difficulties in generating one at home.

Not so fast, however, there are some pitfalls. For example, do you need your feedback form to be responsive, bootstrap-powered or entirely customized? If yes, then you need to sweat it out. You have to play with CSS styles, Javascript libraries, and modern HTML features in order to find a perfect symbiosis that will bring the mockup to life. To say nothing about making it work with the help of PHP or some other means.
