how to insert a contact page
This has been covered before.
I would just add your email address to a page labeled "Contact" myself.
Hi! I've said in one of the earlier posts that I'm using the Blix Theme. It does have a Contact Page option. However, When as atest message, I press the Submit button... on the next page it confirms that the message has been sent. But whom is it reaching, I don't know. I haven't got any messages in my mail. Please can you help. My email is dhaleta(at)gmail(.)com and my blog is http://himvani.wordpress.com
I would send in a feedback and ask that question. Someone's going to have to look at the code for that. I would think though it should go to teh email address on record.
As mentioned in another post also it's working for me fine now. The problem was at my end only. While everywhere, I'd put the email id mentioned above. But under 'Options' -- 'General' The Email id was you(at)example(.)com. I remember having changed it before also, but now I see that the confirmation Email had gone into the Junk folder. So I've changed it again and confirmed it. It is working fine for me now.
WP seems to be a little complicated with all these things around.
One -- a dashboard with all the blogs should be there when one logs in, instead of taking you to the default blog. There are other many small things which WP would have to strramline.

Please pass your browser over the blue bar along the top the next time you are logged in. When it passes over the "My Dashboard" link, you'll see a listing of your blogs.
just as a note: I've been trying to find a "soft" template with the contact form template included, but unless I go through every single one, there is no way of knowing.
As a suggestion to WP, perhaps some notation under each template preview on the presentations tab that says "templates avail yes/no" and which, as I found one I liked but it only had archive template and link template available.
Right now I'm deciding do I want to live without a contact form or go with a less appealing (in my opinion) overall theme for the blog.
I know the Blix theme does. You can see it in action here.
yes, the blix theme does have it ... unfortunately it is one of the templates that I do not deem to be rather appealing to the eye (sorry to all who use it :( but personal preference.
I will probably have to end up going with it because the more I weight the need for a form and the look - it just seems the form is more important.
Yeah, the biggest problem with WordPress is that it doesn't allow you to add any arbitrary HTML to your own posts, so you can't use a service like mycontactform.com to just put in the contact form yourself.
So you would rather have you site open to hack attempts? Staff has stated time and time again that security overweighs pretty much everything else here at wp.com since this is a shared environment.
User inputted forms are an opening to hacks.
this is what i get for an error, can anyone assist me? i am new to this blogging thing so please help me out. thanks.

Thanks for your comments!
Afriad not since you're at the wrong site. You need to be over at http://wordpress.org as that's the site for the version of WordPress that's hosted elsewhere.
Suggestion - Always read a post labeled "Please read me first before posting". Would probably have saved you the trouble. :)
