If your contact email is already in the about me section of the Edit Profile section then you will be able to simply add the contact form.

Customise the colour of the contact form

The colour of your contact form will depend on the theme you are using, either SmugMug dark or light. If you are using the dark theme the contact form will be a dark colour. If you are using a light SmugMug theme the contact form will be white. To change the theme of your SmugMug website go to 
> Customize at the top right of your SmugMug website. 
Then you need > Theme in the customize panel. 
You can change the Theme of the website (or the colour) from dark to light or to patterns or what ever colour you desire. 
Just choose an Available Theme if you would like the SmugMug light just click on  SmugMug then click on SmugMug light.

Did you know?

You can customise just the colour of the contact form. By adding custom CSS to the advanced section in the Edit Theme Panel, this is really easy to do (just copy & paste). For example if your SmugMug website theme is dark you can add the custom CSS to the theme panel and just the contact form will be light and bright. 

Edit SmugMug CSS

To edit the theme CSS you need 
> Customize 
> Theme in the customize panel
 Click the wrench icon to edit the theme. 
Then you need > Advanced
Scroll to the bottom of the Advanced theme settings to Custom CSS  then click Edit
Copy & paste the code below into the custom CSS  
The custom CSS is from a SmugMug blog post, if you would like to use other colours just change the hex code in the CSS. 
Once you have pasted the custom CSS in click done, then publish now. 

If you can’t click done, it is probably because you need to give your theme a name in the basic setting area in Edit Theme.
