email.jpgCouple of things this week… first up if you take a soujourn over to your ‘Plugins’ area you’ll find a brand new toy.

Just turn on the ‘Contact Form’ plugin, configure it and drop %%wpcontactform%% into a post or page and hey presto… your readers, students, gran and family pets can send you an email straight from your blog!

There’s even a spam stopping maths question, so you won’t get harassed by bots.

Second up you might be interested in the ’31 days to a better blog’ chocolate challenge , to which edublogs is contributing a small pile of chocolate.

Notable edubloggers involved in the challenge include Mobile Technology in TAFE, My Technology Addictions, and Al Upton and the minilegends. Go show them support, and if you know of any other edubloggers taking the challenge… then let us know in the comments.

About James

James Farmer lives in Melbourne, Australia and spends most of his days chained to a computer while being harassed by tiny pixies insisting that he try to improve edublogs.


  1. I just tried out the contact form. Pretty cool!

  2. I activated the contact form – I’d like to put it in a sidebar. How do I accomplish this?

  3. Put it on a page called contact and use a text widget to link to that page… big forms in the sidebar aren’t usually a good idea.

  4. When I try to use this, it says I didn’t answer the security question. Under the email box is another shaded box with no label. Help??

  5. Is it working now? It looks pretty good! (good question too)

  6. Hi James,
