Coding up a contact form can be a pain. You will need to figure out the HTML Markup, CSS Rules, Data Validations, Data Storage and Email Notifications. While none of these things are technically difficult but they are definitely time consuming.
Even if you are comfortable with programming, building and publishing a working contact form can take up a couple of days. However if you decide to use a service like SpiceForms, you can have a working contact form in 10 minutes.
In this tutorial I will cover how you can build a working contact form using SpiceForms
1. Register with SpiceForms.

2. Create a New Form
Click on the Create Form Button, give the form a name. Refer to the screenshot
