I've created a new content type called "Form Page", with a required field being a reference to a contact form. So on the page you would have a body, and under that the contact form itself. I can't seem to figure out how to display the form on the page. I either get a link, or the system name of the contact form printed out. How would I go about this?

There needs to be a little more to the Contact Form entity for you to be able to display it. The easiest way to get this is to install the Contact Storage module. After doing this, your manage display options will include "Rendered entity" which will give you the contact form as you hoped and expected!

  • Thank you, I will try it out! Just out of curiosity, what would be the recommended way of displaying a contact form on the front-end?

    Oh dear— what i described is the recommended way of displaying a contact form on the front end (other than the built-in way of a standalone page of course). If you want to embed a contact form within a node edit page... this won't do that. And really, you probably shouldn't. I'd be curious about the use case for why you'd want to...

  • Sorry if this is a noob question, but what's the built-in way of a standalone page?

    @Pim The default contact form is always viewable at /contact but all the contact forms you create can be viewed at /contact/[machine_name], for instance /contact/feedback
