Adding a contact form
How to add a simple contact form using a reflexjs block and Netifyly form handling.
Since I'm using Netifyly for deployment, I consulted the Gatsby documentaiton on form handling and added some attributes to the form component:
<Form method="post" action="/contact-success" netlify-honeypot="bot-field" data-netlify="true" name="contact">
The action="/contact-success" sends users to my contact-success.mdx page which is the same as the contact page with a success message.
The next time a deployed to Netifly, it recognized the form and then I could added my email in the form settings to be notified when someone submits the form.
