Contact Form HTML Tutorial: How To Create Simple Contact Form

very bad costumer service – This company has major flaws in their billing system. In my account, I am registered as Manual and they kept insisting that i signed up for Automatic. To add to this, there is a fee of almost $400.00 to renew the account but I was never informed. I already pay the yearly fee of about $20.00, and when I wanted someone to explain the difference no one provided an answer. Please, do not fall in this trap, these people are not helpful. I do not recommend this membership to anyone. Morna, Atlanta,

    Great tuts, Christian. Although I'm already a quite experienced designer, I don't know that much about HTML5/CSS3, so I enjoy your tuts!
    I was wondering.. How is this going to work in your RWD theme? In your RWD theme tut you spoke about adding this contactform in it, and so, it'll be RWD too. I can't find the tut you were talking about (where you use this contactform as RWD in your RWD theme).
    Maybe you could post a link or make one, if you haven't made that tut yet.

    Hi Christian! Would you mind covering Bitrix24 as well? We are 100% free web form maker that comes with a free CRM as well. So all data entered in the form automatically ends up in the CRM and you can use our free email marketing (up to 5000 emails/mo) to reach those people. We support all form types – contact forms, squeeze pages, quote request, order forms, registration forms, etc. Pardon me for the shameless plug, but it looked like it would be appropriate here.
