How To Create A Contact Form In HTML And CSS

Creating a contact form using HTML and CSS with FabForm involves setting up a form on your HTML page and configuring it to submit data to FabForm’s endpoint. FabForm provides you with a form endpoint URL that you’ll use as the action attribute in your HTML form tag.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Create an Account on FabForm.io

  • Visit FabForm.io and sign up for an account.
  • Create a new form, and you will be provided with a form endpoint URL.

2. HTML Markup (index.html)

Create an HTML file with a simple contact form:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
    <title>Contact Form with FabForm</title>

    <div class="container">
        <form action="https://fabform.io/f/{form_id}" method="post" class="contact-form">
            <h2>Contact Us</h2>
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="name">Your Name</label>
                <input type="text" id="name" name="name" required>
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="email">Your Email</label>
                <input type="email" id="email" name="email" required>
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="message">Message</label>
                <textarea id="message" name="message" rows="4" required></textarea>
            <button type="submit">Send Message</button>


Replace "YOUR_FABFORM_ENDPOINT" in the action attribute with the actual endpoint URL provided by FabForm.

3. CSS (styles.css)

Style your form with CSS:

body {
    font-family: 'Arial', sans-serif;
    background-color: #f4f4f4;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    height: 100vh;

.container {
    width: 100%;
    max-width: 400px;

.contact-form {
    background-color: #fff;
    padding: 20px;
    border-radius: 8px;
    box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);

.form-group {
    margin-bottom: 20px;

label {
    display: block;
    font-weight: bold;
    margin-bottom: 5px;

textarea {
    width: 100%;
    padding: 10px;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    border: 1px solid #ccc;
    border-radius: 4px;

button {
    background-color: #007bff;
    color: #fff;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    border: none;
    border-radius: 4px;
    cursor: pointer;

button:hover {
    background-color: #0056b3;

4. Test the Form

  • Open your HTML file in a web browser.
  • Fill out the form and click the “Send Message” button.

5. Check FabForm Dashboard

After submitting the form, check the submissions on the FabForm dashboard associated with your account.
