Customizing the Appearance

  1. Style.css - If you want to change the appearance of the form, you will need to do so via the style.css file.
  2. HTML - If you want to add more content to the form page itself, you will need to do so via the HTML portion of the microContact.php file.


Once you have made all the customizations, upload the entire folder onto the server. You can rename the file microContact.php to contact.php or any filename you wish to use.
