How to Locate Form ID and Field ID


Do you need to locate form ID and field ID for WPForms to use in your custom code or custom CSS? It’s very easy to find the ID number for a form or field to use within other code snippets such as CSS, PHP or even JavaScript.

Methods to locating the ID

Below, we’ll show you both methods on finding the form and field ID.

Form ID

The simplest way to quickly locate a form’s ID is on the Forms Overview page. To get to this page, go to WPForms » All Forms. In the Shortcode column, you’ll see the embeddable shortcode for each form and this will include the form ID.

For example, the screenshot below is indicating the shortcode [wpforms id="211"]. The ID for this form would be 211.
