Just after installing the Contact Form 7 plugin, you’ll see a default form named “Contact form 1”, and a code like this: [contact-form-7 id="1234" title="Contact form 1"]

Copy this code. Then, open the edit menu of the page (‘Pages’ > ‘Edit’) into which you wish to place the contact form. A popular practice is creating a page named “Contact” for the contact form page. Paste the code you copied into the contents of the page.

Now your contact form setup is complete. Visitors to your site can now find the form and start submitting messages to you.
