    There already is a Contact Us page with a link to it at the bottom.

    The URL for it is incorrect. It's just leading back to your homepage, when it should be leading to /contact/ (e.g., http://xenforo.com/contact/).

    Check your navigation template and make sure that's correct.

    What option have you chosen in the ACP for the contact page?

    EDIT:
    And I believe the contact related template will be the footer.

    Go into the ACP, and in the search box at the top type in contact, then choose the Contact URL.

    The search option in the ACP is very good - if only more people would use it! :)

    Direct links are nice.. but I've gotten into the habit of trying to target folks to start using the built in search feature of the ACP. An overlooked feature that is very handy. :p

    See that the issue is resolved @garry420. Did it end up being the Contact URL?

    @garry420 I notice that you're not on 1.3 as you stated in the thread prefix, you're still on 1.2.5 (I know these things ;) ). There's a lot of nice new stuff in 1.3 and 1.4, definitely worth upgrading if you can. :)

    Yep, you will have some issues upgrading because I believe that style is an older 1.2.x style and has not been updated. If you are not familiar with template changes, you would probably have to engage someone to get them to update the templates in it for you.

    You get a year's worth of upgrades when you purchase XenForo and I believe you are still in your first year, so all you need to do is download the update from the customer area and follow the instructions here:

    https://xenforo.com/help/upgrades/

    but taking careful note of this:

    https://xenforo.com/community/resources/how-to-upgrade-to-xenforo-1-3.2810/

    *EDIT* Just seen @Tracy Perry's post, that will make things more problematic.
