Hi there,

 

I'm looking to made a few amendments to my contact form.  I'm using the default Dawn theme, and would like to change the following -

 

Name - Changed to Full Name and a mandatory field

Comment - Changed to Message and a mandatory field

 

Send - Change to Submit 

 

I'd also like a message to pop up after the form has been submitted saying ' Thank you for submitting, we will be in touch soon!'

 

I'm an absolute coding novice, and can't seem to figure it out.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks so much

Hi, @Kmactwin. Thank you for sharing that context!

 

You can use the Shopify Forms app to make customizations to your forms. You can add the app to your store through the app store here and you can learn more about the app here. You can also make some of these wording changes you mentioned by editing your theme's default content. To do this, go to Online store > Themes and click ... > Edit default theme content next to the theme you're using. From here you can navigate to the text you'd like to edit to make those changes. The section in the theme content editor you're looking for should be found under Templates > Contact form. This guide can help you use the theme content editor.

Hi Erin,

 

Thank you so much, this is so helpful!  I've managed to change the wording via the Edit default theme content.  Do you know how I can make all of the  fields required/ mandatory?

 

Thanks again

Hi, @Kmactwin.

 

Thank you for your reply! This does require some changes to your code which I am not able to provide support on. Usually a partner will respond to your question here on the forum, or you can hire a Shopify expert
