Want to create a "Contact" page whose link jumps down to footer

  1. I want to create a "Contact" page on a WordPress.com blog. The link would appear alongside the "Home" and "About" navigation links currently at the top of the page. I want it to work such that when one clicks on "Contact", it jumps down to the footer on every page; that is where my contact info resides.

    I know that this can be done with WordPress.org by editing the footer php file. Can this be accomplished in WordPress.com? Or is there a widget to accomplish the same thing? Thanks!!

    The blog I need help with is reginarivera.wordpress.com.

    Please read all of the custom design upgrade FAQs

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. ...

    You can place text in a text widget and use position absolute to position it in the footer if you have the upgrade.

  3. You can put the contact info or a contact form in a footer text widget, and create a link to the footer in a custom top menu.
    But I don't see the point of linking from top menu to footer: if one has to click a menu link for the contact info, then that menu link could very well be a link to a contact page.

  4. Thanks so much for the info, timethief and justpi!

    I just noticed that my original post ended with the sentence, "The blog I need help with is reginarivera.wordpress.com." I didn't type that, and it's not actually the case. I'm helping a friend with his blog at a completely different url.

    My experience is with wordpress.org. I appreciate your help with the wordpress.com way of things. :)

    justpi, in addition to directing readers to the Contact info, my friend wants to use the content appearing in the footer for additional navigational purposes. Rather unconventional, but he's just trying to feel out a way that suits his purposes.

    Thanks, again!

  5. The software automatically supplies the URL when a blogger fails to designate the blog in question when they create a thread.
