With it's built-in contact component, adding a message form to your Joomla web site is a very easy process. You may create multiple categories of contacts, each with multiple contacts themselves. This tutorial is a walkthrough of how to setup a new contact.
An important thing to do is login to the Joomla backend. This really is at yourjoomlasite.com/administrator.
The first step in this process will be to add a new category to place our contacts in. Categories all that you to group sets of contacts so you can have forms for many members of your sales team, or all of your managers. First go to Components > Contacts > Categories. The screen demonstrates to you an overview of any categories that already exist. Automagically there will be one category named "Contacts". You will want to click the New button from the upper right corner with the screen to create a new category. You will see a form you'll need to fill out.

As soon as the contact category has been created we can go put in a contact. Go to Components > Contacts > Contacts. The screen teaches you an overview of any contacts that already exist. Now, click on the New button to create a new contact. Fill out the short form on your contact's details. You can link a communication to a user, you then won't need to write inside their email address. You can also incorperate your mailing and other important contact data. In the event you decide you want to add data on the contact's profile but you do not want visitors to be able to see if from your site you are able to control what is shown while using the parameters. If you want to block certain contact information or text this can be done under the email parameters. This really is useful for controlling contact form spam.
For people as a way to use the form it'll need to be added to recption menus. Go to Menus > Main Menu. This may show you all products in your menu. Click Not used to add a new menu item. Select the Contacts loink under Internal Link. To generate a form with multiple contacts select the Contact Category Layout link. Clicking the typical Contact Layout link allows you link to a single contact.
Split up into Contact Category Layout you'll want to add the title, which is what will show within the menu. The category which gets shown is set underneath the parameters. You can also control a number of other parameters.
If you opt for the Standard Contact Layout you need to add the Title which controls what exactly is shown in the menu. To choose which contact is displayed it gets set beneath the parameters. You can also control all kinds of other parameters.
