Add Blogger Contact Form To Separate Page
Adding a contact form to blogger blogs was a tedious task earlier before until Blogger has released its official Contact Form Gadget. Blogger blogs were missing one major feature therefore either we had to use third party services like as JotForm or else no choice thus no contact form. But now it takes only a few clicks to add blogger contact form Gadget from Blogger's large Gadgets library into sidebar or footer of one's template layout. But still most of the people want to add blogger contact form to a specific dedicated contact us page rather than as a sidebar or a footer widget. We are going to deal with it thoroughly in this tutorial.

Why Blogger's official contact form is better than any other third party services?

This is simply because of its incredible features like as:
✔ Fewer options and its hassle free neat and clean design.
✔ Instant message delivery. We receive our message as soon as someone sends it.
✔ No page reload. When we click on send message button, we don't get any page reload because contact form Gadget works on page and user receives the success message notification just below the button.
✔ Easy Customization using CSS like as text, color, width or height.
✔ We can install it on any specific/static page instead of sidebar or footer.
✔ Trust factor. This is straight from the blogger itself and we need not to worry about anything.

Important Update:- New Version of Blogger Contact form is available which is more Professional, Responsive and Better so visit new article - Add Blogger Contact Form to Pages - Pro and Responsive Version

I have customized it thoroughly as much as I could and gave it more elegant look. One more thing I have added is that it will appear it the center of the page (not in left side or right side) and it is fully responsive so you need not to worry about that.

If you liked my design then we shall move on to adding our blogger contact form to a separate page of our blog. :)

Adding Blogger Contact Form to Separate Page of Your Blog

Important Note:- So now we are going to add contact form to blogger page step by step but before doing it, I want you to uninstall/delete this widget if you have it already installed into sidebar or footer and it does not work for you. If it is working good, but you just want to move it to a separate page then continue as it is.

If it is the first time you are going to install it then just follow the steps given below but if you have already installed it into sidebar or footer then just skip this step:

✔ Go to Template > Layout > and in the Sidebar, click on Add a Gadget link. Wait for the popup box to load.
✔ Now by default, you'll see Basics Gadgets list and to see Contact Form, just click on More Gadgets link in right side below the Basics. To understand things better, just check out the image below and follow the steps one by one.

✔  First of all without doing anything else, type in the title what exactly you want your contact page URL permalink. For me, I added contact us so I got my permalink as twistblogger.com/p/contact-us.html be careful because you can not change it later.

✔  Now turn on the HTML mode on page editor by clicking on HTML button right side to the Compose button and remove the HTML code lines appearing there. Press Ctrl+A and hit the backspace button on your keyboard to clear everything.

Some frequently asked questions you might be curious to know are answered below but if you have more questions then add them in comments, I'll reply you there.

Some FAQs About Blogger Contact Form Gadget


Question No. 1 - Where will these messages go?

Answer: Whenever someone sends you a message from your blog's contact form, it will be delivered to the email address of the blog admin instantly. If your blog has more than one blog administrators then the messages will be sent out to all of them. In case you want to add a new blog administrator to your blog, then just go to Settings > Basic > Add Authors and invite anyone using his/her email address. He/she will receive an email from blogger and as soon as he accepts your invitation, he will appear in the authors list from where you can mark him as an administrator.

Question No. 2 - Can I add/alter customs fields of blogger contact form?

Answer: Somewhat yes, you can do it if you're good into JavaScript but that is beyond the level of my expertise area. :) So in my case I can not do this. I hope someone will come up with this twist and Google will help you in finding that tutorial.

Question No. 3 - Will adding blogger contact form to a separate page affect the SEO of my blog?

Answers: No, it will certainly not. Although its always good to be on the safe side so you can add few lines on the contact page. You can check our Contact Us page for reference.

Question No. 4 - Why should I use Blogger contact form on a specific page rather than on sidebar?

Answer: It depends on you, the blog administrative but its always good to have a special dedicated page and visitors always expect that there will be a contact page on your blog where they can contact you and for that, they look at the Navigation bar of your blog for a link. It gives your blog a professional touch. Believe me, these things do work when it comes to credibility. On a separate page, you can also add some guideline to your visitors before they fill up the form and send you a message.

Question No. 5 - Why blogger contact form is not working? Even after the success message notification?

Answers: There may be a lot of reasons for it that like as you did not check the email account which is associated with your blogger blog or else you did not install it properly. In this case, just remove the contact form widget from your blog and re-install it again or else add your blog URL in comment box and I'll surely check it out if you want it.
