To add a contact form in WordPress, you can follow these steps using plugins like WPForms or the built-in form block:

Using WPForms Plugin:

  1. Install WPForms: Install and activate the WPForms plugin from the WordPress plugin repository.
  2. Create a New Form: Navigate to WPForms in your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New” to start creating a form.
  3. Configure Form Fields: Use the drag-and-drop interface to add fields to your form, such as name, email, and message. Customize each field according to your needs.
  4. Set Up Notifications: Go to Settings > Notifications to configure email notifications when a form is submitted.
  5. Set Up Confirmations: Go to Settings > Confirmation to decide what visitors see after submitting the form, such as a thank you message or a redirection to another page.
  6. Insert Form into Page: Edit the page where you want to add the form, click the “Add Form” button if you’re using the Classic editor, or use the WPForms block in the Gutenberg block editor. Select the form you created and save your page.

Using the Built-in Form Block:

  1. Edit a Page or Post: Open the page or post where you want to add the contact form.
  2. Add the Form Block: In the Gutenberg editor, click the “+ Block Inserter” icon and search for “Form,” or type “/form” and press Enter.
  3. Choose Form Type: Select “Contact Form” from the list of form types offered.
  4. Customize the Form: Add fields such as Name, Email, and Message. You can also add extra fields by clicking the “+” icon below the form and selecting the desired fields from the list.
  5. Configure Form Settings: Set the email address where you want to receive form submissions, customize the email subject line, and define what happens when the form is submitted.
  6. Style Your Form: Adjust the design of your form using the block settings, such as changing field widths or adding styles.
  7. Publish or Update: Once satisfied with the form design and settings, click “Publish” or “Update” to make the form live on your website.

Remember that the exact steps might vary slightly depending on the theme you are using and whether you are using the Classic editor or the Gutenberg block editor. Additionally, if you want to add the contact form to all posts, you might consider adding it to a sidebar or using a global footer section that appears on every page.
