No, not the fish. As an RVblogz Supporter, you can easily add a simple contact form to any post or page of your blog. Just like they do it at WordPress.com! Simply activate Grunion in the plugins tab of your dashboard.
You can add a contact form to any post or page just by inserting the simple tag
[contact-form] into the post wherever you want the form to appear.
It will work like this …
Readers and visitors to your blog can then send you messages directly. Emails will be sent to the post’s author. Your email address is never shown, and the sender never learns it (unless you reply to the email).
What’s a Grunion?
The plugin was written in Southern California, home of an unusual fish called the Grunion. There’s apparently no correlation between fish and contact forms; it’s just a fun sounding word that’s geographically apropos.
Anyone can put whatever they want in the name and email boxes. How can I know who’s really sending the message?
If a logged in RVblogz member of your site sends you a message, the end of the email will let you know that the message was sent by a verified user.Otherwise, you can’t trust anything… just like a blog comment. Anonymity is both a curse and a blessing
My blog has multiple authors. Who gets the email?
The email is sent to the author of the post with the contact form in it. So each author on your blog can have his or her own contact form.
Great! But how will my visitors know who they’re sending a message to?
Just make the title of your post “Contact Mary” or put “Hey, drop John a line with the form below” in the body of your post.
