Content pages are a way to provide general information about your business or products. This article will outline the different options available on Ecomly for creating web pages like Homepage, About us, Contact, Terms of Service and more…
In this article, we explained how to work with Page Builder and how to create a simple page.
Note: It’s very important to use just Elementor Page builder for editing regular pages. The WYSIWYG editor is available for Blog Posts.
On the right sidebar, you can find Page options and settings. The most common settings are Publish, Permalink, and Ecomly Theme Settings.
Publish – You can edit or schedule page publish date.
Permalink– Edit page URL
Ecomly Theme Settings – With options listed under, you can set variety of settings for each page.
Pages can have status displayed bellow.
If you have multiple users on your website, you will also see tabs for pages you have created (the Me tab) and pages created by all users on your site (the Everyone tab).
Contact forms are a convenient way to manage how your customers get in touch with you. It allows you to set up a formatted message so you can control the information they send and reduce spam email contacts. Ecomly has a built-in contact form, but you can use a more robust app tailored for your business needs.
First of all, open the page you want to use the Contact Form in. Once you have opened your page in Page Builder in the editor pane, you can use the contact form widget:
First, let’s focus on the basics. Elementor pre-populates your form with the necessary fields that any contact form should have:
These are all you need for a basic contact form. But how about if you want more fields? To add a field to your Elementor form, click “Add Item“.
As you can see, there’s a range of settings, so let’s first select the Type. There are multiple different field types, including:
Phew! That’s a lot of field types!
In the Elementor editor, click on “Email” to display the available options:
There are a lot of fields for email. Out of the box, everything is pre-filled, so if you don’t need anything specific, you can breeze right past this and save your page.
If you want to understand more about the possibilities of the settings for your Elementor contact form, read on. 🙂
Here are all the options and what they do:
Next, you’ll see there’s a meta box field that contains metadata, which you can set to be sent with the form submission.
You don’t usually need to modify or edit this.
Finally, there’s the “Send as” option. The send option allows you to select whether to send the submitted entry as plain text or HTML (defaults to HTML). Again you don’t usually need to change this.
In the editor, click on the “Style tab“.
