TechsPlace | When it comes to contact forms, trying to use a ‘one size fits all’ solution is far from ideal. That is the problem with ready made forms that you find online, and more often than not their design will be a poor fit or they may have other issues.
While you could technically customize ready made forms or create your own forms from scratch – that isn’t easy. In fact if you don’t have experience with HTML and CSS it will be time-consuming and the results may not live up to your expectations.
The good news is that instead of trying to wrangle code that you’re unfamiliar with, you could just use the AidaForm Online Form Builder. With its help you could tailor-make exactly the type of contact forms that you need in HTML, without actually touching the code at all.
How to Create a Contact Form
Before you begin to create a contact form using AidaForm, you should first sign up for an account – assuming you haven’t already. Don’t worry registering for an account is free, as is creating forms.
After you’ve signed up you can log in to AidaForm and follow a few simple steps to create your form:
- Create the form and select a template to start with
In AidaForm’s members area you should click on the ‘Create a Form’ button and proceed to select the template that you want to use. It is up to you to decide which template resembles the type of form that you want to create, or if you’d prefer to start with a blank slate you can opt to do so as well.
- Add blocks various types of fields to your form
The Form Editor will let you customize the structure of your form by arranging building blocks with various types of fields. To add more fields just open the Form Elements section, and choose the type of field you want to include.
It is possible to customize the label for each field that you add in the settings for that element.
- Select and customize a theme
Next you should customize the appearance of your form, by opening the Form Designer section and selecting a theme. If you want you can create a custom theme, or adjust the colors, fonts, and other style parameters to match your design requirements.
- Publish the form
If everything checks out you can click on the ‘Publish’ button to export your form. Select the option to export the HTML code, and AidaForm will automatically generate it so that you can copy and paste it on your website.
