    Contact Form 7

    Socex uses Contact Form. plugin for receiving messages from visitors.

    Click on Contact > Contact Forms. Here you will see the central administration panel where you can manage multiple contact forms. You will also find the Contact Form 7’s default contact form, labeled Contact Form 1.

    Contact Form 1 contains all the fields a basic contact form may need. This form is ready to use and can be inserted into any page and post of your website, if you wish (this is covered further on).

    Note: "Contact Form 1" is only an example. You will see "socex-contact-form" instead of it.

    Creating a new Contact Form :

    Give your new contact form a name, and then scroll down to Form. Here you can edit the new contact form template. Your template defines the various fields that will appear on your form, as well as the labels that appear next to those fields.

    Mail configuration :

    Any extra fields you add to your contact form are not automatically reflected in the email notification template settings. Therefore, once you have finished customizing the Form, switch to the Mail, tab.

    This is the template for the email you will receive when a contact form is sent. In the To field, check that the email address is correct, as this is where any contact form correspondence will be sent. (Contact Form 7 by default will add the email that is linked to your website).
