How to create the Hestia contact form in WPForms

WPForms is a great plugin that allows you to easily create any contact form you want. It comes with pre-built form templates that can be easily customized, so you don’t ever have to start from scratch unless you want to. To use the contact form you just need to copy the shortcode of the form and paste it wherever it fits your needs.

🧰Tools needed:

  • The Hestia Theme - more details about installing and options can be found here.

💌Creating the Contact Form

The contact form can be created in two ways:

Import the Hestia contact form template

If you want to create a new WPForms form, similar to the form in Hestia, this is the step for you. To make it easy for you to get the contact form template of Hestia, we created a WPForms template that you will need to import into WPForms.

2
Navigate to Dashboard > WPForms > Tools.
3
Under the WPForms Import click " Select File" and upload the template you previously downloaded, then click " Import".

Once the import was successfully finished, you can go and  check your forms and you'll see a newly created form named " Hestia".
