Summary of this tutorial:
For creating your contact form, you would first want to decide on a form plugin. For that purpose we recommend WPForms:
With the plugin selected you would want to add it under Plugins, Add New. Search for WPForms and click to install and activate the plugin.
When starting with WPForms you would go under WPForms, Add New to begin creating a form. Add the name for the form and select Simple Contact Form as that is what we are wanting to add to the site.
You will be given options for different fields you can add or you can leave it with the default fields as they are already set up with some of the standard fields with a contact form.
Each has some customization options on the left once selected for letting you change the title of it and a few other options.
You can add the shortcode to a post or page by visiting the page editor and there will be a new add form button. Select the form you created and then click add form to insert the shortcode for you.
Should you want the form in a widget you can use the WPForms widget that allows you to select the form for you to add and then save.

This plugin works with all WP themes?
It should as long as the theme does not specifically state it does not support the plugin for some reason
i keep getting some false false embedded texts in the code, any help with that?
It would depend on what you are seeing, if you reach out to the plugin’s support they should be able to help remove the embedded text 🙂
Hey there great tutorial. I have a question though when I click on my contact page edit button it brings me to a page that looks different then the page you show my page just says contact and then underneath that it says edit with elementor Which would bring me to the standard edit page with an elementary I don’t see anywhere where it allows me to add to form any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like you’re looking at a pre-generated contact page created by Elementor. You would want to create the contact form in the WPForms admin area then add the shortcode or WPForms block to the page depending on what Elementor allows
