Step 3

On the Appearance tab choose where to position your contact form so that it suited your website design and structure. The most popular position for contact forms is a bottom panel that you can place either on the right or on the left side of the page.

Step 4

You will find the Choose a color section on the same tab. Click the Theme button to pick a color for your widget. Here you can choose from the suggested colors that are the colors of your website or pick any other color. Try different color options to see which one will look best on your website - you will see the result in the preview window on the right. You can also click the Full-size preview link to see a bigger preview of the widget on your website.

Here you can also create an autoresponder, a letter that will be automatically sent to everyone who has filled out the contact form.

Step 7

When you are done editing your new widget, click OK. Please note that when you first create a widget it is not activated and not displayed on your website. When you are ready to publish the widget, activate it.
