Creating a Contact Page in Movable Type

viewing the contact us form in movable type

Movable type doesn’t include a contact form, and we were not easily able to find a compatible form. We suggest using a 3rd party service, such as jotform, which is free.

In this tutorial we will show you how to create a contact page in Movable Type using JotForm.

Create a Contact Page

  1. Sign up for an account with JotForm. There is a link on the top right.
  2. Watch their 2 minute setup video, then create a form page on their website.
  3. Click the My Forms link, then click the form you want to add to your movable type page.
  4. Click the More option, then Embed Form.

  6. Create a Contact Us type page in Movable Type.
  7. Edit the page, and click the drop-down box next to Format. Click None from the list.

  8. Add the JavaScript to the page, then Publish it. You will then see the form on your page.
Congratulations, now you know how to add a Contact form to your Movable Type page!
