Adding blogger contact form is worrisome to everyone. As a result, bloggers decide to use third-party contact form service providers – 123formbuilder, Jetform, Google contact form etc. which are not enough fast loading and cannot be customized if you want.

Before going to start I want to point out some advantages of using Blogger default contact form. So, let’s discuss it.

Once you are done, you can see a window. Now, select on “HTML” mode (See the image below) and paste those codes we have copied for Contact Form with “Inspect Element” and saved into a Notepad on the last step 2.

Or you can copy the below HTML code –
<div class="widget ContactForm" data-version="2" id="ContactForm2">
<div class="widget-title">
<h3 class="title">
Contact Form
<div class="contact-form-widget">
<div class="form">
<form name="contact-form">
<input class="contact-form-name" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-name" name="name" size="30" type="text" value="">
<span style="font-weight: bolder;">*</span>
<input class="contact-form-email" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email" name="email" size="30" type="text" value="">
<span style="font-weight: bolder;">*</span>
<textarea class="contact-form-email-message" cols="25" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-email-message" name="email-message" rows="5"></textarea>
<input class="contact-form-button contact-form-button-submit" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-submit" type="button" value="Send">
<div style="text-align: center; max-width: 222px; width: 100%">
<p class="contact-form-error-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-error-message"></p>
<p class="contact-form-success-message" id="ContactForm1_contact-form-success-message"></p>

And finally makes sure “ContactForm1” is changed to “ContactForm2” otherwise, your contact form will remain in hidden.

If everything is done successfully then click on “Publish” at the right side and check out whether it works or not.
