Setting up a Remixer contact form

Overview

Remixer uses a Formspree contact form, which requires a fully hosted email account (not a forward-only alias). Using a forward-only alias as the configured email for the form will result in the form not sending messages or being able to be activated properly with Formspree's verification process that is described below.

You can use the 'Contact With Details' 'Web Section' to create a contact form within Remixer.

Setting up a contact form

  1. Register for a Formspree account.
  2. Create a new project under your Formspree account. Make sure you verify your account's email with Formspree.
  3. Copy the /f/your-form-id portion of the endpoint URL under the Your form's endpoint is: heading.
  4. Open Remixer.
  5. On the top right click My Sites, then click the Edit link under your theme.
  6. Pick somewhere in your theme to add the contact form.
  7. Add the 'Web Section' named 'Contact Form'.

  8. Edit the text area on the right to include your details.

    An options menu appears at the bottom of the 'Web Section'. Here you can adjust the placeholders users see.

    It's currently not possible to add additional fields to the contact form.

  10. Paste the previously-copied form ID in the Contact Form Email Address field.
  11. After you finish assigning the email, click outside of the box to return to the theme.
  12. Finally click the Publish button in the top right to make it live.
