Plugins extend and expand the functionality of WordPress or add new features to your WordPress website.

This Process is just few minutes from installing the Plugin to display the Contact Form In your Website.

Now Let's start to install the Plugin. First of all click on Plugins on the left side of the WordPress screen. Now Click on Add New Button on the top as you can see the image.

In this example, I have installed Contact Form7 that is very popular contact form plugin, So after clicking on Add New button type the Keyword contact form It will display a list of all contact form plugins.

To install, simply click on “Install Now” and then “Activate Plugin” on the next page.You can click on “More Details” to see more information about any plugin.

Now I'll tell you guys, what is the use of this Contact Form Plugin ?
As I've discussed earlier, Whenever, We need to create or show a contact form in our website then instead of creating Contact forms of our own. Install Plugin and use it in our Website to become our Work easy, flexible and time consuming. Let's see its simplicity to Show a contact form, You just need to copy a Shortcode and Paste it on your Post or Page.


Now Click on Publish and then click on View Post.

Install a Plugin from third Party Site:
If you have downloaded a WordPress plugin from somewhere, you can upload the .zip file and install it directly from the WordPress dashboard. Click on “Upload Plugin” and browse your drive to find that .zip file.
Let me tell you guys, WordPress only accepts the .zip format for uploading WordPress all plugins and themes. You can see the Images Step by Step to Install the Third Party Plugin.

Then Choose the zip file from the drive wherever the zip file is stored.

After then, Click on Install Now button.

Then Activate the Plugin.
