How to add a form in a sidebar widget

Posted by on Sep 15, 2010 in How To, Tips

Adding Contact Form widget to the sidebar in WordPress
1. Go to Appearance >> Widgets using the administration menu.
2. Find the Text widget in the list on the left, and drag it to the right widget area to activate it.
3. Click on the new Text widget’s Edit link(a down arrow), and enter a title for the widget and then add the shortcode below it.
The shortcode for Fast Secure Contact Form #1 is: [si-contact-form form=’1′]
4. Click the Save button (easy to forget) and then go to the front page of your blog to see your new shortcode-enabled widget.

(Note: your theme must support widgets for the new text widget to show up. If it doesn’t then you will have to “widgetize” your theme or find another theme that does support widgets.)
