Custom Templates - Valkyrie

Valkyrie comes with three additional types of custom templates: Author List, Tag List and Contact Form. Both type of pages are used to provide a full list of author / tags automatically and they don't require to do any modification to the theme itself. To display such lists on your website, follow these steps:

  • Create a new post on your blog, and turn it into a Page.

  • Select the type of template you want (Author, Tag or Contact Form):

Contact Form

If you need an static contact form you can create a page with Contact Form selected as custom template. The form itself does not have functionality, but if you want to, I recommend to use: Formspree. You are able to use everything you normally use on a page, but limit yourself to use text only.
