How to make a contact form with Bootstrap 3 ? (JQuery/PHP/HTML5/JqBootstrapValidation)

Hey guys!

Today we will talk about such essential feature for any website as contact form. Recently, while working on one of the projects, I had a pleasure combining couple of very nice tools (Bootstrap 3 + JQuery + jqBootstrapValidation), which resulted in minimalistic , but powerful contact form, that would be a good addition to any website.

Contact me form


In this post I will walk you through the process of developing this form. Also if you just want to put it in your website, just pulled from my github repo and have fun.

Sounds good ?

Let’s start.

When I was developing my form I had in mind following goals:

– Minimalistic design
– Track person’s contacts for future communication
– Send form information directly to my email
– Validate input – client side and server side
– Show success when form is sent, or provide alternative method if something went wrong

As you might see – nothing special. I would love if somebody else would provide me this solution yesterday, when I was working on my project – this could save me some time! 🙂

Let’s divide our workflow into sections:
– Required Libraries
– UI
– Client-side Validation, JQuery – PHP Interaction
– PHP (so called server side)

Required Libraries

We will require following libraries :
Botostrap 3
–  jqBootstrapValidation

So all you need to do is just download necessary files and put them in.

After getting Bootstrap and jqBootstrapValidation our website tree will look like this:

– –  css
– – – bootstrap.min.css
– – js
– – – bootstrap.min.js
– – – jqBootstrapValidation.js

Let’s move to the UI part.


For the UI we will use Bootstrap 3 and some attributes from jqBootstrapValidation.js . I won’t cover Bootstrap 3 components as it will take far too long, but if something is unclear, please shoot me an email and I will clarify that for you.

So in the root of our website we need to create file form.html .

Final version of /form.html will look like this:

Contact form for your site by Anatoly Spektor
  <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
  	<link href="./css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen" />

<!-- Contacts --></pre>
<div id="contacts">
<div class="row"><!-- Alignment -->
<div class="col-sm-offset-3 col-sm-6">
      <!-- Form itself -->
<form class="well" id="contactForm" name="sentMessage" novalidate="">Contact me
       <!-- Full Name -->
<div class="control-group">
<div class="controls">
	    <input class="form-control" id="name" type="text" placeholder="Full Name" required="" data-validation-required-message="Please enter your name" />

        <!-- Email -->
<div class="control-group">
<div class="controls">
		<input class="form-control" id="email" type="email" placeholder="Email" required="" data-validation-required-message="Please enter your email" /></div>
        <!--Message -->
<div class="control-group">
<div class="controls"></div>
<div id="success"></div>
 <!-- For success/fail messages -->
 <button class="btn btn-primary pull-right" type="submit">Send</button>

 <!-- JS FILES -->

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="text/javascript" src="./js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jqBootstrapValidation.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="./js/contact_me.js"></script>

Sorry for this formatting, it’s hard to put code into WP, please find formatted version of form.html here

If you are familiar with Bootstrap – this code is pretty straightforward.

There are couple of important things I would like to point out:

  1. Since we are using jqBootstrapValidation, we need to put novalidate attribute into our form tag, otherwise HTML5 validation will clip jqBootstrapValidation validation.
  2. To change color/style of your error messages just change “.help-block” CSS class
  3. data-validation-* classes are used to specify custom message when user does something incorrectly. You can find more about those here.
  4. jqBootstrapValidation library looks at input and textarea tags and automatically puts validation if needed. For example if there is a “required” attribute, it automatically will put error message if the field is empty.

That’s all I can think of, if you have additional questions, please send me an email, or ask me in the comments below the post.

Client-side Validation, JQuery – PHP Interaction

So now we have finished the design of our form. Next step is to activate jqBootstrapValidation library, pass users data to PHP, which will send an email and finally show something to the user.

Most of these is done in one tiny JQuery function.

Here it is (file js/contact_me.js):

  Jquery Validation using jqBootstrapValidation
   example is taken from jqBootstrapValidation docs
$(function() {

     preventSubmit: true,
     submitError: function($form, event, errors) {
      // something to have when submit produces an error ?
      // Not decided if I need it yet
     submitSuccess: function($form, event) {
      event.preventDefault(); // prevent default submit haviour
       // get values from FORM
       var name = $("input#name").val();
       var email = $("input#email").val();
       var message = $("textarea#message").val();
        var firstName = name; // For Success/Failure Message
           // Check for white space in name for Success/Fail message
        if (firstName.indexOf(' ') >= 0) {
	   firstName = name.split(' ').slice(0, -1).join(' ');
                url: "./bin/contact_me.php",
            	type: "POST",
            	data: {name: name, email: email, message: message},
            	cache: false,
            	success: function() {
            	// Success message
<div class="alert alert-success">");
 $('#success > .alert-success').html("<button class="close" type="button" data-dismiss="alert">×")
 .append( "</button>");
 $('#success > .alert-success')
 .append("<strong>Your message has been sent. </strong>");
 $('#success > .alert-success')

 		  //clear all fields
 	   error: function() {
 		// Fail message
<div class="alert alert-danger">");
 $('#success > .alert-danger').html("<button class="close" type="button" data-dismiss="alert">×")
 .append( "</button>");
 $('#success > .alert-danger').append("<strong>Sorry "+firstName+" it seems that my mail server is not responding...</strong> Could you please email me directly to <a href="'"></a> ? Sorry for the inconvenience!");
 $('#success > .alert-danger').append('</div>
 		//clear all fields
         filter: function() {
                   return $(this).is(":visible");

      $("a[data-toggle=\"tab\"]").click(function(e) {

/*When clicking on Full hide fail/success boxes */
$('#name').focus(function() {

For the most part I have took the function from jqBootstrapValidation examples. However, there are couple of things particularly interesting to us.

jqBootstrapValidation allows to overwrite submit on success behaviour, which I am doing in this case. If user submits everything without errors – I do a POST request to the file bin/contat_me.php with name, email and message.

File contact_me.php, which we will code in the next section, sends me an email with everything that user filled in. Also, I check If I am able to connect to this file, in this case I send back “Message sent successfully” to the user, otherwise I give an error telling user to email me directly ( use cases: for example if mail server is down, if validation on server side failed, if permissions to php file are incorrect etc) .

There is not much to add, but if you have any questions regarding this function do not hesitate to ask.

PHP (so called server side)

Finally, we got to the last piece of this puzzle. I have a php file that does some validation on the data received from form and sends me an email.

Here is my PHP file ( bin/contact_me.php )

// check if fields passed are empty 

 if(empty($_POST['name'])   ||    
    empty($_POST['email'])  ||
       echo "No arguments Provided!"; 	return false;    
  $name = $_POST['name']; 
  $email_address = $_POST['email']; 
  $message = $_POST['message']; 	 

 // create email body and send it	 
 $to = ''; 
 // put your email 
 $email_subject = "Contact form submitted by:  $name"; $email_body = "You have received a new message. \n\n". 				  
                   " Here are the details:\n \nName: $name \n ". 				  
                   "Email: $email_address\n Message \n $message"; 
 $headers = "From:\n"; 
 $headers .= "Reply-To: $email_address";	 

 mail($to,$email_subject,$email_body,$headers); return true;			 

As you might see my PHP file is even more simple. Of course you can add extra validation on top of it. For my use case I am just checking if fields are not empty and if email has correct format. If everything is correct, I create an email and use PHP’s mail function to email it.

That’s it.

You can find all these files here.

I hope this function will be useful for you!





(Thanks a lot to Corey Russell  for resolving some of the occurring issues)

Q:  I see “Sorry <Name> it seems that my mail server is not responding… Could you please email me directly to….”

A:  1. Go to line 26 of the contact_me.js file you have. There you’ll see the url for contact_me.php. Make sure that url is correct. I think by default it is pointing to a folder called bin.
2. If you try it from your desktop it won’t work as it doesn’t have a php server/client installed.

  1. Thomas Anderson says:


    Whenever I try to send a test email it says my mail-server isn’t responding. What does that exactly mean?

    • Hey,

      I have faced it too. It worked for me on the hosting (as it has mail server on it and mail() is configured with PHP), but did not locally. Try looking for how to setup mail with PHP. (For example this website can be useful: )

      Hope this helps,

        Hello Anatoly,
        Thanks for this wonderful tutorial. I am a new web developper. I am trying to run this example on my Desktop but it’s not working. I have got XAMP server installed ùn my pc ! I am getting this error ” it seems that my mail server is not responding… Could you please email me directly to….”” Can u please help. Thanks.

    • coreyrussell says:

      Hey Thomas,

      I don’t know if you’ve fixed it yet, but I had a problem with the mail server as well. I fixed the issue by making sure the correct path was entered on line 26 of the contact_me.js file. Hope this helps if you haven’t got it already.

      I’ve tried many, none working – New to this – helped a lot, thanks for the great post!!

  3. Tiago says:

    I have this problem
    “Sorry Tiago it seems that my mail server is not responding… Could you please email me directly to….”
    How can fix this? I have not much idea of php

    Thanks for all!

    • coreyrussell says:

      Tiago, go to line 26 of the contact_me.js file you have. There you’ll see the url for contact_me.php. Make sure that url is correct. I think by default it is pointing to a folder called bin.

      You can see that I have a working example on my site. Click the contact link and you can see that it works.

      • Shay says:

        Great work.

        in the text area “Message”, the placeholder is not shown, all i can see are empty spaces.
        in the demo link, it is OK – there is no problem.
        But when i looked in coreyrussell website, i see the problem i mentioned above.
        could you please check coreyrussell site, and tell me how to fix it.


  4. coreyrussell says:


    I hadn’t actually noticed that until you pointed it out as I did not wish to use placeholders. I have updated my contact form, however, to show you the only viable solution I could find. It seems as though placeholder isn’t playing nice with textarea in bootstrap 3… so I just put the text I wanted between the tags.

    Well the markup I’m used to for showing code didn’t work lol… but you get the picure

  6. Eric says:

    Have a long form that I am using your tutorial with. The only issue I am having is posting any checkbox from the form.

    Here is the input:

    Select: Dear Tastebuds: You’re Welcome.

    Here is what I have in the JS file:
    var library_selection = $(“input#library_selection”).val();

    data: { library_selection: library_selection}

    and the PHP Post:
    if(!empty($_POST[‘library_selection’])) {
    foreach($_POST[‘library_selection’] as $check) {
    echo $check;

    Email Body:
    $email_body = “Libary Selection: $check \n”.

    Any thoughts would be great!

    • ercheitz says:

      Okay here is the input again without the brackets:
      input type=”checkbox” value=”OD_Dear_Tastebuds” name=”library_selection[]”

    • coreyrussell says:


      This is not my script. I just had some of the same issues that others were having, and was happy to help. As for your issue set the name in the form to check_list[] and you will be able to access all the checkboxes as an array($_POST[‘check_list’][]).

      Let me know how this works for you, or if something else solves your problem.



      • coreyrussell says:

        the php looks like:

        if(!empty($_POST[‘check_list’])) {
        foreach($_POST[‘check_list’] as $check) {
        echo $check; //echoes the value set in the HTML form for each checked checkbox.
        //so, if I were to check 1, 3, and 5 it would echo value 1, value 3, value 5.
        //in your case, it would echo whatever $row[‘Report ID’] is equivalent to.

        Not sure why this posted twice but yeah…

      • ercheitz says:

        Thanks for the reply! Not sure why I am having so much problems with this.
        Does the jQuery need to be changed at all? I have a Terms & Conditions checkbox that wasn’t working but now is. var terms_and_conditions = $(“input:checked”).val();
        For the check_list its still posting nothing. Changed the name to check_list[], my php is:
        if(!empty($_POST[‘check_list’])) {
        foreach($_POST[‘check_list’] as $check) {
        echo $check;
        and jQuery: var check_list = $(“input#check_list”).val();
        Form submits but the check_list post is blank.

      • ercheitz says:

        HA! Man I just realized what “This is not my script.” reply was all about. Thanks for reply! Will let you know how it goes.

  7. ercheitz says:

    Well the code did not translate well. Here the input again:
    Select: Dear Tastebuds: You're Welcome.

  8. coreyrussell says:


    Check this post about the implode

    And let me know if you figure it out, I don’t have the time to test it right now. Happy it solved part of your problem.

    ¿why? Help me!! :/

    • coreyrussell says:


      1. Make sure you are testing it from your web server. Do not test it from your desktop as it will not work.

      2. As mentioned in previous comments, go to line 26 of the contact_me.js file you have. There you’ll see the url for contact_me.php. Make sure that url is correct. I think by default it is pointing to a folder called bin.



      • Luis says:

        Yes, I have the 2 files in the same folder.

        url: “contact_me.php”,
        type: “POST”,

        does not work :/

      • Eric says:

        Try adding “./” before contact_me. My PHP file is in the same directory as the indes.php file and I had to add the dot and forward slash.

  11. coreyrussell says:

    And you are testing it from a web server?

  12. Luis says:

    Hi Anatoly,

    Many thanks for the form. I have installed it and have it working. However I would like to be able to send two messages to two different email addresses when the form is submitted.

    Would I be able to add this to the contact_me.php file and where you create the email body I would create two sections of code, one for $to1 and $to2, $email_subject1 and $email_subject2?

    Any help gratefully received.

    • coreyrussell says:

      Ok Nic. Try using an array and implode it to a comma separated string.

      $recipients = array(
      $email_to = implode(‘,’, $recipients); // your email address
      $email_subject = “Contact Form Message”; // email subject line

  18. Ethan says:

    I put the php file on the site root folder and playing on the MAMP server on my desktop.
    ” Your message has been sent. ” That is great!
    However, when I checked my email, I do not get the message to my email either.
    Could you help me out?

    • coreyrussell says:

      Make sure it’s using an up to date version of php, or try running it from a web server to see if it produces the same error. Also check your spam folder just in case 😉

      • Ethan says:

        I am using 5.3.6 version of php. I have been digging for the answer to this question and found out it might be the problem of MAMP having no mail server. I believe you are right. I didn’t launch my website to a web server yet and I will try to figure it out then. Thank you for your quick reply. ^^ BTW: Do you have recommended web server?

  19. kay says:

    Hi, Thanks for the tutorial. Great work!

  26. mike says:

    hi, thx for this beatiful bootstrap form,
    i have problem with this so, it send mail with chrome but most of time doesnt send mail in IE and in Firefox i dont know why, pleay help


    • Hey Mike,

      Since mail is sent “server-side” through php script , I don’t think that mailing action is browser-dependant, unless you have some plugin in one of the browser that actually sends an email.

  27. Nate says:

    thanks so much for the form!

    I wondering if you could help me with a problem:
    I’d like to add two more fields: Business name and phone. I put the input box, but without the right code it doesn’t send it to my email. Could you help me out?


    • Hey Nate,

      I am glad that you like the form. It is great that you are adding fields! Adding fields is not hard at all. I don’t want to give away the whole solution, but I am glad to give you couple of tips. Trust me adding fields is super easy!

      Here is where you should look at:

      1. Add input text boxes for you fields to the UI the way I am doing it lines 14-16 of form.html
      2. add your fields to client side validation (js/contact_me.js) the same way I do it in lines 17-18 of contact_me.js

      3. In PHP catch client input like I do it in lines 12-13 and add variables where save client input into mail function (line 24) all this inside contact_me.php

      Try it and tell me how it goes 🙂

    How would i add ReCapcha to this form?

  30. Nali says:

    it’s saying “message sent” but not receiving anything in the email

    how do i make the failure messages red like the success ones are green

  32. Joe says:

    I have a page that has a contact form and a quotes form in it. How can this be implemented with two forms.

  33. imahar says:

    I want to ask one question that how the submit button is associated with the javascript file which calls to the server side code in your code in “js/contact_me.js” .Actually i need to send some data to the database from html page i want to use your code to call server side code.

  34. Fajer says:

    That’s great man, it saved me a lot of time. Thanks a lot. 🙂

  35. Mikey T says:

    Excellent article, many thanks.
    Just wondered if anyone is aware of any way to hack the validate script so that errors are displayed in bootstrap popovers instead of help-blocks. Due to cross domain issues, I have to iframe this form into a modal and the extra space to accommodate the help-blocks is damn ugly.

    I realise this is not your script but just checking as I can’t find anything online.


  36. R says:

    First off, awesome work!
    This would be really helpful.
    However, its saying “Mail Sent, but I don’t get any emails at all.

    • Hey R,

      I am glad you liked the post. When I myself try to use PHP mail() function from my local computer, it does not work, because it is not configured to send emails, whereas if I try to upload it to web host – it works perfectly fine.

      Hope that helps!

  37. Fajer says:

    You know what would be absolutely great? 🙂 If you could add captcha validation 🙂

    • I don’t believe in captchas they are making easy-enough process so much difficult, especially ones that hard to read 🙂 But In case you need one, there are plenty of easy to use add ons that you just copy-paste and you have a captcha 🙂

  38. Melocotron says:

    Hi, I have a little problem, when I send a message (I put mi email on line 17 y 22 contact_me.php), I recive two messages, and It is a bit annoying. Any solution? 🙂

    My form works and sends ok but will not display the success message, any ideas?

  40. Garry says:

    Hi, everything is working with the form. Thanks for your work.
    Only one thing I need to do to finish the form and I have have tried everything I know. And I am not say that I know a lot, just enough to get the though. So I would appreciate your help.
    In my form I have a checkbox to check if someone would like to subscribe to a newsletter:


    I would like to receive your e-newsletter.

    I do not know what alterations are needed to contact_me.js to POST the value to contact_me.php
    If you could help it would be much appreciated. Thankyou.

  41. Garry says:

    Tried to put in the checkbox code but it didn’t accept it.


  42. Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems
    finding one? Thanks a lot!

  43. Hi Anatoly,

    Thanks for the contact form, it works like a charm! I had it up and running in 35 mins. As you mentioned, I had to change the name of the .php file, but that’s it.


  44. Seth says:

    Hi Anatoly,

    First off great form, it works really well and it’s great having the fall-back in case the mail server is unavailable.

    I’m currently trying to extend the form and add a select dropdown but am having trouble getting the value passed through to the contact form. I had a look over the comments here and saw one from Nate which was along similar lines.

    The dropdown is displaying on the form fine, I have updated the contact_me.php to collect the new post variable (called location) and have updated the contact_me.js to add the new variable after line 19.

    Using chrome debugging on contact_me.js and some breakpoints I can see name, email and message getting set but the new location variable remains undefined.

    I have added the following code:

    // form.html – added within form


    // contact_me.js – added after line 19
    var area = $(“input#location”).val();

    //contact_me.php – added after line 14
    $location = $_POST[‘location’];

    I’m really not sure what the issue is – although I’m thinking I’ve missed or messed up something in the contact_me.js.

    Any pointers would be most welcome!

    • anionsuarez says:

      Seth, had the same problem yesterday with a select.
      The problem is use “input#location” in the var area assignment.
      Use only: var area = $(“#location”).val();
      I waste much time in this problem so i put the solution here!

    Thanks for your tutorial. When I follow the tutorial first, I have no problem querying my message to my database. But when I change the form.html to form.php it doesn’t work. It doesn’t even calls the action from ./bin/contact_me.php. what happened?

    thanks for this useful form 😉

    It seems that everything is working fine for me… I even have the “message successfully sent” message… BUt I never receive any mail 😥

    I have correctly setup my email in the contact_me.php file on line 17 (and 22)

    do you have any clue what could cause this?

    you can check the form on the site

    thanks for your help

    • This has to do with your mail server. Make sure you have your mail server set up properly. You could also try programs such as FakeSMPT that act as Fake Mail Sever, in order to see if email are coming through. If they are, you will need to set a real mail server.

      • sylvain says:


        thanks for your answer.

        I replaced the form by a h ref to a php file with the mail function hard coded (

        and it’s working fine… ;s

        meaning the issue is not from the mail server nor the PHP mail function not working.

        If you have any way of opening a window with the variables listed I could try to debbug this 😉

        thanks again

    Hi there, thanks for the form it looks amazing. However I have the problem that none of my mails are actually coming through. All seems to be fine and validating.

    I’m with justhost and I found something about making sure the E-mail goes to an adresss at the same URL, which I am now testing with but still can’t get it to work. Any ideas?


    • sylvain says:


      I managed to have it working. I don’t know why but it seems that all the pre-check seems to be the issue…

      I commented all that part:
      // check if fields passed are empty
      //if(empty($_POST[‘name’]) ||
      // empty($_POST[’email’]) ||
      // empty($_POST[‘message’]) ||
      // !filter_var($_POST[’email’],FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL))
      // {
      // echo “No arguments Provided!”;
      // return false;
      // }

      and now everything works fine

      • I had the same issue – commenting out the server-side validation seems to work for me. I don’t know php, so I have no idea what part of this isn’t working – any suggestions?

    Thank you for this great and simple contact form! i have one question: how to prevent double submit?
    My server takes about 10-15 seconds to send the message (dunno why), while that is happening you see nothing and probable people will submit several times…
    I’m not much of a coder or a programmer, i tried several solutions i found on google but nothing seems to work for me…

    any ideas?
    thank you

    • daniel says:

      Sorry for the double post… i finally disabled the submit button after clicking it, but i have another question:

      How can we enable a “sending, please wait” alert, after clicking the submit button and disappears with the “message sent” alert? takes too long to process and see the “message sent” alert…

      thank you,

    PHP function didn’t return properly errors. This code
    “echo “No arguments Provided!”; return false; ”

    Will show no error on client side, but will show message that email is send. Also not working mail() function (for example: Failed to connect to mailserver) didnt show error.

    It works when everything goes OK but when something goes wrong still shows ’email sent message’. Very confusing.
