It is just as crucial to have a contact form on your website as it is to have a phone at your office. In a world where convenience reigns supreme, it enables your clients (and potential customers) to contact you at any time of day. Even the simplest contact forms may help you acquire leads, expand your email list, and interact with your audience. There is only one stumbling block: HTML.
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the standard coding that is used to create the vast majority of websites and apps on the internet. And, with the exception of the language of love, it is not something that can be learned in a single night. The good news is that you can make an HTML contact form without knowing how to code. So don't worry if you don't know your UTF-8 from your SRC - we'll walk you through all you need to know to start developing an HTML contact form right now in this post.
In this post, we'll teach you how to use simple HTML and PHP code to construct an email contact form. The HTML contact form page is one of the most useful pages on any website. A contact form should be included on every website. Scroll down a little to view our HTML-based form for the front-end. Further down, you'll see the PHP code for the back-end form processing, which is used to take form submissions and send them to you through email.
An HTML editor is required to produce HTML code. It aids in the conversion of the code into whatever you're attempting to create - in this example, a contact form. Consider an HTML editor to be a customized word processor designed exclusively for making web pages. To produce HTML code, you may use any text editor, however specialist editors provide far greater convenience and capability.
There are a plethora of excellent HTML editors available. Some common choices are: - Codepen - Notepad++ - Kompozer - Sublime Text 3 - Atom - CoffeeCup - Brackets
Any of the tools listed above will suffice, but if you prefer to seek out the ideal answer, there are hundreds to choose from. Most are free, so you may test them out to discover which one works best for you.
Following that, you must notify your operating system that you are producing a new HTML file. Fortunately, this process is really straightforward. All you have to do is open your HTML editor and create a new file with the '.html' extension. Simply name the file and end it with.html. When working with code, it's better to keep things simple, so name the file 'contact form.html' or something like.
After you've given it a name, put html> into the text area. This informs the editor that you wish to generate HTML code. It's similar to how you play Charades and gesture the category you're performing before playing it out. Your editor will produce the following code for you automatically. It won't matter if you're making a small contact form or a whole HTML website.
You must now create a new file. This time, though, you must save it with the '.php' extension. This one manages the form submission process and ensures that the data you obtain from your responders is sent correctly.
Without the PHP file, your form is like a car without an engine - the data cannot move. Given that the purpose of contact forms is to gather information, they are rather necessary. A piece of code in your HTML connects the PHP file to your form (we'll get to it in the following stage).
As a result, the PHP file allows you to collect data (name, email, message, and any other input types you've supplied). It then sends it as a plain text message to your email address. In technical words, the PHP code below checks user inputs on the server side. To translate from gobbledygook: it ensures that everything works. It also creates any error and confirmation messages that users may see when completing your form.
Copy and paste the code below into the.php file. All you have to do is change the email, subject line, and success message (all of which are specified in the code).
All that remains is for you to design your form. We've included a template that will produce a basic HTML contact form for you. Simply copy and paste the code into your preferred editor. If you're new to HTML, it's a good idea to learn the basics of the language. Otherwise, you risk producing a super-evil A.I. and not even realize it. The "input" tag specifies where users can enter data, whereas the "label" command indicates a caption for a user interface component (for example, 'Your Name' above an entry field). "H1" denotes the header, while "div" works as a bookmark, dividing separate sections of code.
The "form action" connecting to the PHP code is one of the most critical aspects. Without this to connect the HTML to the PHP code, your form is merely a poor imitation of a contact form. It will appear to function, but it will not.
