I want to change the contact form phone number from "optional" to a "mandatory" field.

Optimally I would like to add fields to the contact form but found the available instructions to be vague.

Robert I have to assume you are using "Form Builder" from the editor. If that is correct click on the field and change the setting (about 4 items down) from "Required". Good luck.

Is this what you read, https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_do_i_create_a_custom_form? If so and you have specific questions, let us know. The required option is on the right. It is a check box.

Robert, hopefully the above will resolve your problem but, a word of caution, I shope extensively on line but whenever I come across a website that wants my email AND mandatory phone number I never complete the form. There are so many Companies world wide the make unsolicited phoone calls that i wil not give my number out to all and sundry. To my mind, if a website has my email for contact that should be enough.  So, be carefull, you may lose more customers than you think if you make a contact number mandatory.
