There are a million contact form examples out there, why this one?

  • It’s SIMPLE
  • It’s FREE
  • It WORKS
  • It’s VALID
  • and it’s styled with CSS

Take a look. Download it. Take it apart. Use it for whatever you’d like.


Check out the nice clean emails it generates:

PLEASE NOTE: I get a lot of support requests about this example. It still works perfectly fine, but of course that’s pending on a whole bunch of things like 1) Are you using it in an actual server environment with PHP running? 2) Did you upload the files correctly and all files that reference each other are correct? 3) Are you file permissions normal? The list goes on…

I cannot help you get this working on your site. I’m sorry, I just don’t have time.If you are interested in fighting through, learning PHP, and getting this working, try going to the forums for help.

If you just want to get a form up on your site without any hassle, use Wufoo.
