I am working on setting up a WP with a theme in which one I added a contact form (plugin) The form comes with a short code as follow: [bestwebsoft_contact_form] but wherever I insert the short code the form is generated in its "ready to use" state. which use too much real estate and kills my post look (on a static home page). How can I make a regular image link to the form instead of displaying it opened and ready?

I thought about it but I do not want this page to disrupt the order of other pages, I do not want to tweak the DB as with the way WP loads pages, changes, revisions etc... in the DB it would be too much of a hassle.

I try to create a link from a page that leads to this form (plugin), I now realize that is seems not feasible, thus I might create a page with the form loaded in it and point to the page. Obviously I am quite new to WP, and try to create a site for my own purpose, doing PHP I can jump in the scripts, but the world of pluggin is alien to me! Thanks.

If it helps any, that is how the contact form is expected to be used. I don't know that particular plugin, but others that do the same thing are deployed by creating a page and linking to it - as Nutter said. It is all I've seen for that kind of "plugin using short-link" contact form on my own an other people's WP sites.
