– Enter the Restaurant’s Email Address: In the ‘Email’ field provided, enter the email address of the restaurants or the business you are creating the featured profile for. This ensures that any queries or leads generated via the contact form are directly sent to them.

– Finalizing the Setup: Once the correct email address is entered, you’re almost done. Double-check to ensure the accuracy of the email to avoid any miscommunication.

– Test for Assurance: It’s always a good practice to run a quick test. Submit a test entry through the contact form to confirm that it is correctly routed to the specified email address.

Remember, contact form entries are always saved in your database and you can access them through the ‘Divi Form DB‘ menu from WordPress Dashboard.
