A lot of our users don't like Joomla's default contact form accordion layout and question us how to change it. It's really very easy to change the layout without writing any code! In this tutorial i'll show you how to do this.
Go to Contact component and click the Options button on the top right. You can see an option Display format. Now click the list and it will show 3 options:
1. Sliders: This is the default accordion layout.
2. Tabs: Tab style layout
3. Plain: Basic plain layout
If you want the old fashioned Joomla! form then plain would be your choice.
