By default WYNCHCO website designs are pre-configured with just one contact called Contact Us.

Learn here how to manage your contacts - including your own contact details.

The Contacts component enables you to provide contact information, including contact forms, for your visitors.

 

Default Contact Details

The image below shows the default Contact Us details in a WYNCHCO website design.

They are non-specific.

You therefore need to add your own contact details via the Contacts screen.

To open the Contacts screen select Components > Contacts from the menu at the top of your website's dashboard.

Email

We have highlighted the Email field because its completion for any one Contact determines how the Contact's details are displayed in the Front End.

When an email address is added to the field, a Contact Form will be displayed on your website's Contact Us page.

When the email address is omitted from this field, the Contact Form will not be displayed.

By default in WYNCHCO website designs we omit an email address from the contact details.

This means there is by default no published Contact Form.

But when you add an email address to a Contact you will see the Contact Form in the Front End.

How to show Contact Form whilst hiding your email address

Not everyone wants to display their email address.

It is possible to display the CONTACT FORM whilst hiding your Email Address.

Select Components > Contacts from the menu at the top of your website's dashboard.

Then select the OPTIONS button at the top right.

Under the CONTACT tab (see image below) you can then toggle between SHOW or HIDE for the mail address.

Sliders vs Tab Display

By default WYNCHCO website designs will present contact details in slider format.

You may prefer to use a tab display.

You can choose this display format when you select the Options button from the top of the Contacts screen.

We recommend slider display format because it is mobile friendly.

Contacts Menu Links

When you make changes to any one Contact via the Contacts screen it will not of itself change the Contact Us Menu Links in your website.

To change any one Contact Menu Link you will need to use the Menus screen.
