How do I integrate my WordPress contact form?

Visit the WordPress Plugin Page for third-party plugins that integrate your contact form.

*Note: These integrations were created by third-parties, so If you need support regarding their Wordpress plugins, please contact the plugin creators!

 

UPDATE: You don't necessarily need a plugin to sync up the Wordpress contact form. You can use the Leads via Email method of integration. This video will show you how to integrate Wordpress' native contact form via this method.

    I cannot get this to work. Does someone mind posting their code that Contact Form 7 generated?

    I have the ProPhoto 5 theme and have been attempting to utilize its built-in contact form (long story, but basically the contact form for my Big Folio website is apparently nonfunctional for quite some time now). I tried using the ShootQ Integration plug-in mentioned near the beginning of this thread. However, it is incompatible with the ProPhoto 5 theme.

    Does anyone here have any suggestions or ideas as to how I could successfully integrate this ProPhoto 5 theme while also automating my leads into ShootQ.

    Thanks!

    Hi Gene, First, you're going to want to grab the ShootQ Lead Email within your ShootQ. Go to Settings, Contact Form, Integrate Website, and the Lead From Email address will be towards the bottom of the page. Then, in your Contact Form Settings in WordPress, you'll want to generate an email that goes to this address when your contact form is completed. When I used this pluton, I had one email go directly to my email address and then mail2 go to this ShootQ lead email. I recommend setting up thie ShootQ email to be very basic, such as this: Name: [name] Date: [date] Email: [email] Phone: [phone] Message: [message] When this email goers to ShootQ, the application will do it's best to read the information and generate a lead. That's why it's important to keep the layout clean. Note that when I used this method, my leads were not categorized automatically. Theyball came in as "Other" and I had to give them a shoot type. Hope that helps! Leeann SQUAD Consultant

    Ok, folks! I just published a blog post about the changes I made on the plugin and how to use it. I think it should be easier than trying to answer the same questions via email over and over again.

    If you need help after that, or have any more questions not answered in the post, please add a comment to the post so everyone can see the answer.

    I have my shootq contact form active and running however the only browser displaying the form properly is Firefox which has the form in a single column which fits properly in my wordpress contact page. IE and Chrome are displaying the contact form in 2 columns and the right hand column is cut off. Site is http://blog.vaughnbarry.com/contact-vaughn/  - Any words of wisdom?

    I installed the WordPress Plugin and used the API keys and I'm successfully generating leads.  That being said however I get First Name Last Name and Other for my clients names.  Like Luke Black Other.  Other represents the TYPE of session that the client is trying to book.  What form can we use in Gravity Forms to map to the specific type of session that we want to populate into our fields?

    With ProPhoto Blog 3, how do I have this contact form open on the site instead of the built-in form?

    New plugin for WordPress! This one integrates with Gravity Forms and surpasses the previous one that used Contact Form 7 by a long shot. It's easier to use, and Gravity Forms has many more features. Trust me, you'll want to switch! :D

    I've been working on this one for some time, but just now finished putting the final touches on it. It should also be available on WordPress.org in the next few days, which I just wasn't quite comfortable doing with the old plugin.

    I'm trying to integrate ShootQ with a Flothemes Wordpress page.  Flothemes supports this but when I add in the ShootQ info the entire page shows up within the Wordpress page.  i.e. 2 logos, 2 navigation menus, and you can't see the entire contact form.  I've tried a work around with Contact Form 7, but the information doesn't populate to ShootQ correctly!  (every test I've run has come in as an event date of January 1, 1970 rather than what I entered).  Help please!

    Hi Scott,

     

    First, go to "P3 Customize" on your Wordpress panel. On the "Contact" tab, select "Do not include built in contact form".

     

    if you'd like for your ShootQ contact form to open if a client selects a "Contact" option, you can add this as a menu bar link. Go to the "Menu" option and select "Add/Remove Menu Options" Scroll down until you can add a "Custom Link". Here you would have it say something like "Contact", and the link would be the link to your ShootQ contact form (which you can get by going to Settings--> Contact Form --> View Contact Form link on the left.

    Hope that helps!

    Good work Benjamin - I was already having my website re-designed and had added gravity forms in to give us far more options. I am really excited to check this out. I was trying to have it do a send mail plain/text and I was almost there with it, but hopefully this can save time with some of the quick forms.

    I went ahead and picked up Gravity forms last night. Installed the Shootq plug in. Did the form in the proper order, etc. Filled out the info and while it sends me an email to show me what I got, all info is there. NOT all the info is going to Shootq. It will tell me there is no name, no phone number and no date, even though those are REQUIRED fields.

     

    There really has to be an easier way!

    Our form successfully works with our new site -- but it was integrated so that I could maintain the branding of the new website.  We've noticed though that our "thank you" automated response no longer gets sent.  Is there a way to do this still?

    You're welcome, Nicholas! The problem with simply using the Gravity Forms notification email is that the email is HTML and not plain text. You would have to change the code to force plain text only to change it again after the next update/upgrade.

    Hi CheyAnne,

    You can set up an auto-responder in ShootQ by creating an email that is automatically sent when a lead is assigned your default lead status. For example, when the client fills out your contact form, a lead will be generated in ShootQ and they will automatically be assigned your "New Inquiry" status. You can add an auto-response email to this "New Inquiry" status (under Settings > Workflows > Lead Tracking) that will then automatically be sent to the client. Here's a link to a knowledge base article that explains more: http://help.shootq.com/entries/44912464-How-do-I-create-an-auto-responder-for-my-contact-form-

    I hope that helps. If you have any other questions just let us know.

    - Geoff

    I would LOVE to get rid of the (sorry ShootQ) awful contact page layout and actually have the form's look & feel integrate with my website. Throwing the contact form into a frame like that looks ugly, and I cannot change the layout of the ShootQ contact form without changing the look of the client login pages.

    Luke, you need to set that up in ShootQ itself. Go to the Settings tab and choose Workflow under Business and Finances. Then click over to Lead Tracking. Edit the New status to set up your autoresponse email.

    I have the WORST time getting ShootQ integrated... How hard would it be just to have a plug in for wordpress FROM Shootq that ALL you had to do was plug in your API and such and it worked!

    I don't have gravity forms.

    The Contact Form 7 with add on seems a bit confusing, Still trying to figure out where I add my API.

    The ShootQ Integration plugin didn't size right for widgets. And suddenly my normal contact form isn't working.

    I tried just using the lead email and I'm not getting email on the test contact forms...

    You wouldn't think it would be sooo difficult!
