I have been trying so many times to create a contact form without any plugins, but I guess am not that good with html. The reason is because I wanna minimize plugins instalment on my website.

But I never really opearte with wordpress and I kinda feel like there are some limits in there. Since I don't want to ruin the main theme, I try to create it by blocks editor. But I couldn't find a way to input the form without any plugin. Well if I found it, perhaps I don't know where exactly the data will be send. (Idk if I explain very well).

The thing is I wanna contact form with like this

That is my complete design for html and css contact form but I don't have the .php file, so if I applied this code, I dont know where the data will goes.

So far, I got this with the help of the plugin

Not close but at least there is a form.

How can I include the font awsome html inside the page? Beause it doesn't work with the custom html code. Or should I add the font awsome code on the theme editor first?

And still, back to the main question. Can I make that without a plugin but "real" direction of .php. I mean, idk how to make .php document btw. I am like limited plugin where the information is not complete and need to be upgraded to pro so it can access many areas.

Anyway, thank you so much in advance.

Regards,

Lana Zora

Hi Lana,

So, I did a bit of research and found these...

http://wissamdandan.com/how-to-create-a-wordpress-contact-form-without-a-plugin/

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/contact-form-without-using-plugins/

https://catswhocode.com/wordpress-contact-form-without-plugin/

I use the Contact7 form plugin... it's simple and I like it.

From what I understand, if you're using custom HTML code and later decide to change your theme, the code may not be there in the new theme. Just something to consider...

Harrysastar2 has great training he mentioned below regarding fonts.

Hi Monica!

Great! Thanks!

Thank you for reminding me about the HTML code. I do aware with that outcome. Probably I need to sattle with this theme if I completly decide to follow the instruction from one of the link you recommend. Or I have to create again everytime I decide to change.

Anyway, the links are great! Thanks again for your research.

Regards,

Hi, Lana, not sure about creating a contact page without a plugin, but you can certainly incorporate Font Awesome icons into your posts and pages using custom html.

I did some training some time ago on inserting Font Awesome icons into your posts and pages using the text editor and html that you may find helpful: Hope this helps, best wishes.

Hi Harry,

Thank you for the training. Yeap I guess my issue for the font awsome is the font awsome code that I need to check. I have it originally by the theme I installed, but sometimes that have different code. Perhaps I'll change it with mine.

Hi Lana,if you have inserted the code in the training in your theme's stylesheet's theme header php under <head> there shouldn't be a problem, unless there is a problem with your theme.

Are you putting the html code for each individual icon into your text editor?

If you wish, let me know what theme you are using, if it's a free theme I'll take a look and see it that's the problem. Best wishes.

Hi harry!

I do have my own fontawsome link actually, and now I am using it and applied it on the <head> code. Last time I check, it doesn't have any problem at all and works perfectly.

For the individual I want to show on body content of my page, yes I do need to create a custom html for it. At first I thought it was something wrong with my theme, but actually it just no show on the editor mode. But when I published it, it was there.

I decide to create separate code and test it outside before I applied it on my website, so I can be sure there are no problem and minimize the error.

Anyway, thanks for the help. If you are still curious about the theme I am using. I with The Gap and it is free theme. I do not like to pay so far.

And with the add-on installed, you can get the form you want. Let's say I use Contact Form 7 for contact information
and to collect email addresses Email Subscribers & Newsletters.
With this first brace you can create it according to your will and desire. when you install it, you go to the plugin itself and then to the settings, and edit. Here you are shown the already established form, the one you want.
he hopes I helped.
