We introduced a new "Contact Form" widget today. If a reader enters a valid name, email address, and message into the form, the blog owner will receive the message via their email of record.

To install the widget from the #Blogger dashboard, select: Layout > add a gadget. The Contact Form widget is located under the "More Gadgets" tab.

Happy #blogging !

What, no CAPTCHA? I'm unsure whether I should add this spam form to my blog.
 
No DV... are you serious?
 
Really. I did this years ago with Google docs. 
 
Couldn't it be used in dynamic views template ?

amazing....i have to try
 
While the rest of Google pioneers into the future, this announcement feels ancient.
 
+Peter Stern adding useful stuff and refining existing products is as important to marching ahead as aiming for moonshots. 
 
Great, One of the best awaiting feature for Blogger. 
 
I remember Blogger trying to push Dynamic Views but the last couple widgets didn't support it. What's up with that?

How to add this widget to the page, not to the widgets panel?
 
Right, how to add this on the page?
 
+Ekene Ilochonwu +Johan Ferdian JR +Andrey Pudov  Just place the following HTML code anywhere in your Blog and the contact form should appear

<div class='widget ContactForm' id='ContactForm1'>
<div class='contact-form-widget'>
<div class='form'>
<form name='contact-form'>
<p></p>
Name
<br/>
<input class='contact-form-name' id='ContactForm1_contact-form-name' name='name' size='30' type='text' value=''/>
<p></p>
Email
<span style='font-weight: bolder;'>*</span>
<br/>
<input class='contact-form-email' id='ContactForm1_contact-form-email' name='email' size='30' type='text' value=''/>
<p></p>
Message
<span style='font-weight: bolder;'>*</span>
<br/>
<textarea class='contact-form-email-message' cols='25' id='ContactForm1_contact-form-email-message' name='email-message' rows='5'></textarea>
<p></p>
<input class='contact-form-button contact-form-button-submit' id='ContactForm1_contact-form-submit' type='button' value='Send'/>
<p></p>
<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>
</div>
</form>
</div>
</div></div>


and also add this JavaScript after the body tag (I know this is against the rules of HTML but it is the one of the way to ensure that widgets.js file is loaded before this snippet of code - You can also load this snippet asynchronously if you want )

<script>
_WidgetManager._RegisterWidget('_ContactFormView', new _WidgetInfo('ContactForm1', 'sidebartab1', null, document.getElementById('ContactForm1'), {'contactFormMessageSendingMsg': 'Sending...', 'contactFormMessageSentMsg': 'Your message has been sent.', 'contactFormMessageNotSentMsg': 'Message could not be sent. Please try again later.', 'contactFormInvalidEmailMsg': 'A valid email address is required.', 'contactFormEmptyMessageMsg': 'Message field cannot be empty.', 'title': 'Contact Form', 'blogId': '8293397653821925164', 'contactFormNameMsg': 'Name', 'contactFormEmailMsg': 'Email', 'contactFormMessageMsg': 'Message', 'contactFormSendMsg': 'Send', 'submitUrl': 'http://www.blogger.com/contact-form.do'}, 'displayModeFull'));
</script>
 
+Blogger This is a long awaited update , really glad you people released it 
Kudos to Blogger

Just one request , Keep developing such awesome stuff for Blogger in the future as well
 
Hmm... Not of any practical use... Unless some CAPTCHA and the option to use it as or use it in a page... :(
 
Can't agree more! Definitely long overdue. Btw, can Blogger be more sociable too? For example, we can see other public blogs on the Blogger  platform too? Or is there already such a thing on Blogger?
 
I am not being able to create or edit posts What is going on?
 
+Andrey Pudov Thanks for pointing out , I have added the necessary JavaScript to make it work ( see that comment again for the changes)
 
An improvement would be to enable embedding this into existing pages. My theme would look hideous with this sat at the bottom. 
 
Good but I still can't update my blog design adjustments any cure for this glitch yet?
 
+Prayag Verma
 i tried to open my text editor to create a new page but it's not opening. i received error response. even the editor for my blog post. can you help?

Excellent!!!! Good Job!! Thank you very much Google Blogger! 😘
 
It works,  but the auto-translation of "Name" field to Czech is not accurate...
 
I had a question about how to delete a blogger that I made but don't use anymore 
 
It isn't on the gadgets list accessed through the layout page so how does one add it to a blog?
 
I looked in settings but still can't find out how to delete a blogger. I kind of feel stupid now lol
 
+Andrey Pudov  - I don't see an easy option to do that as of now. But you can tweak your template and get it added
Translate
 
+Blogger nice widget, thanks - works fine on blog, but I made several tests and I don't receive "email" information, just "name" and "message"... email is from "no-reply@blogger.com":/
 
I Share a Tutorial How addthis :)
 
That's a great widget! I renamed Contact Form to "Email The Author." Nice work,@Blogger. This widget is going to be useful.
 
I wanted to use it on the Dynamic Views template, but looks like that is not available, to bad that would be an excellent widget for your blog, , also noticed a couple of other widgets don't show up, oh well, I love this template and am getting such great views with it, it is great and I will continue to use it for our first blog/site online, while I continue to work on the wordpress one and get it up shortly, thanks Google People :) Kate for Farm Watch BC
 
This was great widget but to implements this I will wait till they have something for spammer
 
Схалтурили!) Где настройки? Нафиг эта форма нужна в сайдбаре? Где промежуточная страница с сообщением? Где защита от спама?
Translate
 
How do you install it on Dynamic Views template, anyone know, thanks, :)
 
I think that if you install this widget in a page (there are some tutorials in the web) everything will be ok.
 
Great thanks Thiago, I will try that :) Erika for Farm Watch BC
 
Hi, enjoy you #blogger add am007.am90@gmail.com.my name is Aung Moe

 
So simple and sweet. Awaited and Added same day.
So Nice feature:<no-reply@. Email address can be added, at choice, in message.
Hope the option be given to add in Static-Page, along with other features.
Many Kudos, Thanks and Regards. 
 
This is a great thing; however, I installed it in my blog and I can't get it to work.  Can someone please tell me what I've done wrong.  Is there a configuration screen that I've missed?  Thanks.
 
@Jose
Seems No configuration needed yet.
Have done 'save arrangemet' also ?
 
Yeah I installed it, but it does not work, The send button does not activate.  I took it off until someone call tell me how this needs to be configured.  If it works, it is a GREAT widget.
 
I tried this widget but could not get it to work.  The send button never activated.  If I missed something please let me know.
 
all you do is add the widget in the template section and it appears, but it does not work. 
 
I love this gadget!  It helps me communicate with my audience and readers to a closer level.  And in owning both a cooking and magic blog, this is one of the most useful gadgets!  Thanks Blogger!
 
I can not get this gadget to load up. I'm wondering if it is my template (dynamic) that doesn't enable such features..?!
 
I added this tool on my blog, and one of my readers asked me a question through it as well.  However, it doesn't give you their e-mail address, so how am I supposed to reply?
 
How do I add a phone field to the form?
 
niceone how you make kindly help me how can i post our own blog
 
Way over do, still needs to work out it's technical issues, other than that, can't wait to use it's upgrade....
 
I purchased the domain but not yet processed the request, and been two weeks ...

Waiting to see a new POLL/SURVEY gadget that can be customized like this Contact gadget.existing one appears in iframe. Hope you are listening @blogger :)
 
how will i get emails from contact us forms?
Maestro
 
I have added this and tried to send myself numerous emails using another email address but dont receive any of the emails. Any idea why this cud be. Thanx for the tut.
 
smashing but never trust contact form, its just like AdSense pure scam
 
+Rustam Nasim
was there a way to configure the form to indicate the email account the contact info  should be forwarded to?
 
+anika fit where to find the email from this widget 
 
I'm using this and I have had 2 people send me a message since the change was implemented on my blog page.
 
a contact form that we could add to stand alone pages would be way better to me than this... but this is definitely a step in the right direction. 
 
If a woman at my age can be such a romantic person and be fooled by a scammer..can you imagine all the young women thatare raped of tbeir hard earned money?
 
To Blogger : Can you please block excessive users gaining access to my website which is called : Wordcraft 42
 
The contact form seems to break when you have more than one Admin of the blog.  Please advise.  Thanks.
 
Is there a way to change the Size of the Text Field ? It's so small and doesn't look good.
Translate
 
It looks great in my blog, Thank you very much +Blogger  but i think if we have CAPTCHA or some thing like would be good .
 
I am testing it but not receiving emails as i guess the problem of valid names so kindly give details whats the solution for non valid names like ying yawng ?
 
+George Polzer My contacts form works well. Can you please provide more information, - how you added new plugin to your blog?
 
HI Andrew
I have Added my Contact for by going to layout and adding it from widgets. but its not working I am not receiving any emails. kindly help thanks
 
I did the same now, just to try it from the beginning. Message is received. One thing  - message arrived to the Social folder in Gmail account (if you just looking to Inbox folder, please check Social tab).

Give me your blog address, may be it will be helpful just to compare code.
 
+Andrey Pudov +Anas khan 


I have still not been able to resolve the same issue that Anas has.

Here is my blog url with the contact form:  http://CallGeorgeInScottsdale.com

I have looked in the Social/Forum/Promotional etc. folders and Spam but nothing.

PS Andrey I like your Google+ Profile Tagline 
"I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."

It looks like Google has change the Home screen format of the Profile.  the picture is now smaller and on the left side is an area for the personal information.  Haven't seen that before.  Is there a setting that allows switching between the huge image and the "new" layout?
 
+Nelda Yuntantri 

Hi Nelda, why isn't it enough just to place the Contact form gadget on a Blogger page?  

I am not sure why I have to go to Template/HTML Edit?

My Contact Form doesn't email me the submitted contacts.  Any suggestions?
Thank you.
 
+Anas khan 

+Andrey Karpitsky  you were right.  

The Blogger contact submit email was buried in the Social tab.  The only way to find it for me was to Search "blogger.com"  I set up a filter to get them pulled out of the Social tab.
 
People have been trying to send messages to me using this widget, but I do not receive them.

Where can I read the messages that people are sending me?
 
It does not work in mobile. The contact form does not appear.

<b:widget id='ContactForm1' locked='false' mobile='yes' title='Contact' type='ContactForm'>

mobile='yes' does nothing for this widget.

¿Anyone can make it work?
 
Thank you so much and now it is working on mobile site too. 
 
I cant believe the garbage that the host wears, can you find a host the is normal and does not look like a ideit. The crap the host wheres makes me not watch it any more. Can he wear clothes that you and me wear? I think you might try a diffrent host if he cant dress like a man, not like a thoug, the clothing that he came out with looks like a person thats in as gang not normal at all
 
Can  I make a really obvious observation? If I'm setting this up for someone, so we'll have multiple users-the contact email I want it to go to only one of the users (my client) not to the person whose account is setting it up in initially.  It's really strange that it doesn't ask where do you want this form to go to? Any WP contact form does that....
 
Can I add this as a new page tab instead of a separate gadget down the side?
 
Is ANYONE from +Blogger following this thread? I'm loosing leads! Several of us are asking for help regarding the new Contact Form not working. I like mine on the sidebar, perfect. I've ran several tests from several IP addresses under different users and find about 3 / 10 go through. I know they land in my "Social" tab in Gmail. Why is the new Contact Form a defective product? Please reply with a link, from GOOGLE, showing exactly how to set up the account and add the widget properly. Even consider showing how to clean up the code added to template to get a "Contact Page".  
 
+Prayag Verma i noticed the standard Blogger Contact Form only works with Google Chrome. I cannot get anyone using MS IE to complete a "Send"  any thoughts/advise?????? Does your code work with IE?

Also doesn't work for me. SO disappointed. This would have made things a lot easier.
 
I have a regular domain and the same issue though. I've tried using multiple browsers and smartphones.I think it's a back-end issue, honestly. I've tried everything, but there's nothing you can tweak in the HTML code.

Unfortunately, Google just doesn't do customer service. 
 
When will you make something similar for replying to blog posts. 
 
+Jay Exonauts  - The issues with the Contact Form on Custom Domains seems to be fixed. Can you try again and let me know if it still fails?
 
I cannot receive any email sent from the email form. Anybody face the same problem?
 
i feel it too difficult, can mange it....
 
Not working. Tried several times but doesnt seem to be functional.
