Contact Form With File Upload Option

The contact form that I am using on this blog is from Kontractr Contact  Form and it is all free. Today we will learn to create a simple contact form with no company Ads and along with an upload option that will allow your visitors to send you files straight from your website. The files can be a text file, video, audio, pdf, gif, png, anything.  Many bloggers have already used several sites for contact form building and they have posted in-depth tutorials for this. You will be able to find quite a few of them yourself. Here is my addition. A contact form is indeed essential for a professional blog. A sign that the blog is professional. There are a number of services, which allow you to paste a customized contact form to your own blog. You may want to enable Captcha (image of numbers and letters) in your form to fight the spammers. There are people who use automated ways to contact you if you have a popular blog. So, to avoid these spams, use a captcha. In order to use Captcha, click Form Properties from More Actions menu. Check the box, Need Verification Code. Also you can set the ‘Thank You’ message here. This is my choice for professional contact forms. You can do pretty much great customization with this application. Go to emailmeform and sign up. You can start a new contact form after signing up and you can add fields to it the way you like.
