Show Your WordPress Contact Form In a Floating Tab

Many WordPress contact forms allow you to embed the form into a post or a page.

The Gator Forms plugin is a little different. It provides you with a floating tab so that visitors can easily access the contact form no matter what page they're on.

Here's how to use Gator Forms to show your contact form inside a tab.

Step #1. Install Gator Forms

  • Install the Gator Forms plugin from your WordPress admin area:

gator forms install

  • Go to "Gator Forms" in your WordPress admin area.
  • Click "Create your first form".
