How To Create A Simple Contact Form

How To Create A Simple Contact Form

Creating a simple contact form with Tailwind CSS and integrating it with FabForm.io involves a few steps. FabForm.io is a service that allows you to create and manage forms easily. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Set Up Your FabForm.io Account

  1. Visit FabForm.io and sign up for an account.
  2. Create a new form and note down the form endpoint provided by FabForm.io.

Step 2: Create HTML Structure

Create an HTML file for your contact form. Here’s a simple example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/tailwindcss@2.2.19/dist/tailwind.min.css">
  <title>Contact Form</title>
<body class="bg-gray-100 p-8">

  <div class="max-w-md mx-auto bg-white p-8 border rounded-md">
    <h2 class="text-2xl font-semibold mb-4">Contact Us</h2>
    <!-- Your form goes here -->



Step 3: Build the Form

Inside the <div> with the comment “Your form goes here,” add the form elements:

<form action="YOUR_FABFORM_ENDPOINT" method="POST">
  <div class="mb-4">
    <label for="name" class="block text-gray-600 text-sm font-medium mb-2">Name</label>
    <input type="text" id="name" name="name" class="w-full border rounded-md py-2 px-3" required>

  <div class="mb-4">
    <label for="email" class="block text-gray-600 text-sm font-medium mb-2">Email</label>
    <input type="email" id="email" name="email" class="w-full border rounded-md py-2 px-3" required>

  <div class="mb-4">
    <label for="message" class="block text-gray-600 text-sm font-medium mb-2">Message</label>
    <textarea id="message" name="message" rows="4" class="w-full border rounded-md py-2 px-3" required></textarea>

  <button type="submit" class="bg-blue-500 text-white py-2 px-4 rounded-md">Submit</button>


Replace "YOUR_FABFORM_ENDPOINT" in the form action attribute with the actual endpoint you obtained from FabForm.io.

Step 5: Styling with Tailwind CSS

Feel free to adjust the Tailwind CSS classes according to your design preferences. The provided classes are just a starting point.

Step 6: Test Your Form

Open the HTML file in a browser, fill out the form, and submit it. Check your FabForm.io dashboard to verify that the form submissions are recorded correctly.

That’s it! You’ve created a simple contact form with Tailwind CSS and integrated it with FabForm.io.
