    This looks fine. I’m using it now. However do I have to edit the “top-navi.php” whenever there’s a need to add a page?

    One thing tho, does the comments or messages goes straightly to my email account or it’s just a normal comment box? I tried to leave messages but it went through like a normal comment on my blog.

    “With this technique, no comments show on the contact page, but they show in my WordPress dashboard.”

    Ok I got it, so only me can see the comments when I’m logged-in at wordpress, right?

    K, yes, only you can see the comments on your Contact page through your WordPress dashboard. Not sure what your asking with “top-navi.php” though.

    This is really only a temporary solution for me, but it can be useful because you already have great spam blocking with Akismet.

    Rudi, I’ve tried Intouch and have decided that it wasn’t what I wanted. I’m actually still using this idea right now. I’m loving it because it’s simple and I definitely don’t have spam because of Akismet.

    Thanks Paul, but I’ve tried Ryan Duff’s too. I’m actually enjoying using the method I’ve described in this post now.

    props. this is actually a great idea. i’ve always thought that contact forms were over shoot. the one i use on my website is sort-of nice, but it’s a great example of too many bells and whistles, it’s on right now and I haven’t quite finished the CSS on it… Anyways, I may give your idea a try.

    I actually have another simpler idea that requires less coding if you don’t mind waiting a few more days for the tutorial.

    Yeah! It’s what I was looking for. I also tried several plugins, but they don’t really fit in my page or I have to change my stylesheet. As a comment it should work fine with askimet. Easy and clean! Thanks!

    So.. did you ever come across that perfect contact form for Wordpress? I currently have a freelance project that’s asking for a contact form with several radio button options that they want implemented in the form and I’m having a hard time finding something that allows me to add those.. so any luck?
