    Does anyone know of a good widget/code/solution to providing for a simple RSVP application in a wordpress.com blog? (I have seen some solutions for wordpress.org, but we aren’t hosting our own.) It doesn’t need to be too complicated — it could even just be a form that sends us an e-mail. What I have found so far has not been applicable.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

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

    Use the contact form

    For the contact form, just create a new page, and type [contact-form] along with any other content you wish to also have on the page.

    But … is there a way to customize the contact form a little more? So that guests don’t need to transcribe the whole response card into the field?

    I’m new to wordpress. I’ve done this sort of thing in other applications.

    Thanks again.

    Sorry, there’s no way to customize the content of the form.

    What kind of response information do you need on the response card?

    If you run a lot of events, you could link to an eventbrite registration page or something from the post about the event. That’s what I’m thinking about doing. Running it via email does not work that well, especially if payment is involved.

    Wordpump: Thanks. It’s probably not that important, but it would be nice to mimic the response card format, where the guest only needs to fill in the blanks or check off boxes.

    raincoaster: That’s an idea. It’s probably more than we need, but I’ll look into it. It’s just one event for us, but I’m sure others searching this topic will need that sort of solution.

    @chloeandhans,

    You could use a third party site that offers RSVP forms
    and link to it then when your readers click the link
    the form will open up for them. I recommend using the
    WordPress editor to attach the link to wording of your
    choice & use the drop down window on the link option pop
    up window. then you could use a text widget to paste
    the HTML Code.
