Create a Contact Form in Weebly

A contact form provides your visitors an easy way to reach out to you. You can ask your visitors for simple information, such as their name and email address; or you can set up a more complex form, such as a survey, to ask them any number of questions.

The free basic version of Weebly has a limit of five fields per form, while the premium version allows an unlimited number of fields; however, you can create as many forms as you like regardless of whether or not you have premium.

Creating a Contact Form

You can get started by dragging the form element from the main section of the Build sidebar onto your page.

The form starts with three fields which are set as required by default, meaning a visitor must enter something in the fields before the form can be submitted:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Comment

Form Settings

A number of settings can be modified for each field, but the most commonly adjusted settings are:
  • Field Title - the name of the field
  • Required - whether or not the field is required before submission
  • Instructions - will allow you to specify instructions on how to fill out the field
  • Spacing - allows you to set the top and bottom margins for the element

To change any of these settings, all you need to do is click on a field and use the toolbar to make adjustments.

Adding Fields to Your Form

You can add new fields to the form by dragging them from the Elements tab to the form on your page, just like any other element.

There are several types of preset fields that you can create in your form:
  • Name
  • Email address
  • Postal address
  • Phone number

There are also several generic input fields:

  • Short Text Box
  • Large Text Box
  • Options Buttons
  • Dropdown Box
  • Checkboxes
  • File Upload

Completing Your Form & Getting Results

Form Name & Submissions

Before you complete your form and publish your site, you'll want to give your form a name (for your own reference) and determine which email address (or addresses) you would like to receive the form submissions at.

If you have more than one email address, make sure you separate them with commas. You can also view the submissions directly in Weebly by clicking the View Entries button at the top of the form.

Confirmation Text

You'll also want to decide whether you want to display confirmation text directly on the page where the form is submitted or if you'd rather redirect your visitors to another page on your site when the form is submitted.

Note: You can access and modify these settings by using the Form Options button at the top of the form.
