Creating a “Contact Us” Page

Last updated: August 7, 2018 at 15:15 pm

Alright! So our WordPress website is picking up steam! It’s already looking so beautiful.

Let’s go ahead and create a contact us page for our brand new WordPress website. A contact us page gives visitors all the information they need on how to get in touch with the owners of the business which the website represents.

A contact us page should list as many contact options as possible, such as:

  1. Whatsapp
  2. Facebook
  3. Email
  4. Phone
  5. Skype
  6. A build in messaging form.

You don’t have to have all of the above, but you should have as many as possible. Why do people need to contact you? That’s obvious: business proposals, reservations, inquiries about your products or services, buying something etc. They may even contact you to register a complaint! And you should receive that happily and attend to it mannerly!

Creating a contact us page is just like creating any other page in our WordPress website. So let’s do this. We’re going to log in to our dashboard by typing in Next, we type in our username and password and click the “Login” button.

Now we’re inside our website’s wordpress dashboard. Click New >> Page.

The new page template loads, and you type your title.

Next, I type in the body of the page, which is a basically a simple explanation of all the contact methods we presently have available. Bear in mind that we may improve this page in the future by adding a contact us form to the page, etc.

Next, we click the handy “Publish” button located towards the right hand side of the page.

As you can see in the screenshot below, the page reloads and it is published.

So let’s click on the “View Page” button and see what our new page looks like.

Wow, look at the size of that 5! Houston we have a problem! That’s because this particular theme is designed to make the first letter of the page really big. So I’ve got to figure out how to fix that or change the theme.

OK, so I solved that problem by hitting the Enter button and sending the first line of text to the second line down. The theme is set up to make the very first letter of the very first line extra big. So once I send the first line one space down, it no longer executes that rule. 

So there we have it! A beautifully designed “Contact Us” Page!

What’s next? How about an “Our Rooms” Page! Yes! Let’s do that in our next lesson!

See you there!
