How To Create A HTML contact form

Step-by-Step Guide: Creating an HTML Contact Form with FabForm.io

In this comprehensive tutorial, we’ll walk through the process of creating an HTML contact form integrated with FabForm.io. HTML forms are essential components for collecting user input on web pages, and integrating them with Getform.io allows for seamless form handling and submission management.

HTML Forms: An Overview

HTML forms are fundamental elements used to collect user input on web pages. They consist of various input fields such as text fields, email fields, text areas, checkboxes, radio buttons, and submit buttons. When a user submits a form, the data entered into these fields is sent to a server for processing.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • Basic understanding of HTML
  • Access to a text editor
  • An account on FabForm.io (Sign up at Getform.io)

Step 1: Sign up for FabForm.io

If you haven’t already, sign up for an account on FabForm.io. It’s a simple process that requires only your email address and a password. Once you’ve signed up and logged in, you’ll have access to your dashboard where you can create and manage forms.

Step 2: Create a New Form

After logging in to your FabForm.io account, navigate to the dashboard and click on the “Create New Form” button. Give your form a descriptive name to easily identify it later. Once created, you’ll be provided with a unique form endpoint. This endpoint will be used to send form submissions to Getform.io for processing.

Step 3: Set up the HTML Form

Now, let’s create the HTML form in your web page. Open your preferred text editor and create a new HTML file. We’ll start by setting up the basic structure of the HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<title>Contact Form with FabForm.io</title>

<!-- Your form will be placed here -->


Step 4: Add Form Elements

Within the <body> tags, we’ll add the form elements necessary to collect user input. These typically include fields for the user’s name, email address, message, and a submit button. We’ll use standard HTML input types for these fields.

<form action="YOUR_FABFORM_ENDPOINT" method="POST">
  <label for="name">Name:</label><br>
  <input type="text" id="name" name="name" required><br>
  <label for="email">Email:</label><br>
  <input type="email" id="email" name="email" required><br>
  <label for="message">Message:</label><br>
  <textarea id="message" name="message" required></textarea><br>
  <button type="submit">Submit</button>

Replace YOUR_FABFORM_ENDPOINT with the actual form endpoint provided by FabForm.io.

Step 5: Style Your Form (Optional)

You can add CSS styles to customize the appearance of your form to match your website’s design. This step is optional but can greatly enhance the visual appeal of your form.

Step 6: Test Your Form

Before deploying your form live, it’s essential to test it thoroughly to ensure that it functions as expected. Fill out the form with sample data and submit it. Check your FabForm.io dashboard to confirm that the submission was received successfully.

Step 7: Deploy Your Form

Once you’ve tested your form and confirmed that it’s working correctly, you can deploy it on your website. Simply copy the HTML code and paste it into the desired location within your website’s HTML files.

Step 8: Monitor Form Submissions

Monitor form submissions directly from your FabForm.io dashboard. You can view, manage, and download submissions as needed. Additionally, you can set up email notifications to receive instant alerts whenever a new submission is received.


In this tutorial, we’ve covered the process of creating an HTML contact form integrated with FabForm.io. By following these steps, you can easily collect user input on your website and manage form submissions efficiently. Experiment with different form designs and configurations to meet your specific requirements. Happy coding!
