With it's built-in contact component, adding a communication form to your Joomla web site is a very easy process. You could make multiple categories of contacts, each with multiple contacts themselves. This tutorial will be a walkthrough of how to put together a new contact.

The first thing to do is login on the Joomla backend. This really is at

The first step with this process will be to give a new category to put our contacts in. Categories all you could to group groups of contacts so you can have forms for all members of your sales team, or all your managers. First go to Components > Contacts > Categories. The screen explains an overview of any categories that already exist. By default there will be one category named "Contacts". You should 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. You can limit that can view this category by choosing the level in the Access Level select box. It is possible to set an image to show for the category if you'd like. When you have everything setup it is possible to click the Save button.

As soon as the contact category has been made we can go add a contact. Go to Components > Contacts > Contacts. The screen explains an overview of any contacts that already exist. Now, click the New button to make a new contact. Complete the short form for your contact's details. You can link an e-mail to a user, you then won't need to write in 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 don't want visitors to be able to see if from your site you can control what is shown while using the parameters. If you want to block certain email addresses or text this can be done under the email parameters. This is very useful for controlling contact form spam.

For people as a way to use the form it will need to be added to recption menus. Go to Menus > Main Menu. This may show you all pieces of your menu. Click A new comer to add a new food selection. Select the Contacts loink under Internal Link. To produce a form with multiple contacts click on the Contact Category Layout link. Clicking the conventional Contact Layout link enables you link to a single contact.

If you choose Contact Category Layout you will need to add the title, which is what will show in the menu. The category that will get shown is set underneath the parameters. You can also control all kinds of other parameters.
