Before getting started, you’ll first need to make sure WPForms is installed and activated on your WordPress site and that you’ve verified your license. Then proceed to create a new form and submit at least one entry.
Accessing a Specific Entry
To access an individual entry, go to WPForms » Entries in the WordPress admin area. Then select the form you’d like to view its entries.
Next, under the Actions column, look for the View option next to the entry you’d like to open and click on it.
This will direct you to the View Entry page for that specific entry.

Customizing the View Entry Page
When viewing a specific entry, you might want to make it more compact or display additional fields.
To get started, click the Settings icon that looks like a gear next to the navigation bar. This will allow you to view more customization options.
In the next sections, we’ll cover all the available customization options.
The Field Settings contains additional formatting options for each form field.
If you added descriptions to your form fields, they’d be hidden by default from your entry preview. To show them in your entry view, enable the Field Descriptions option.
Hiding Empty Fields
By default, fields that do not have user input are hidden. However, if the empty fields are showing and you’d like to hide them, disable the Empty Fields option.
When viewing an individual form entry, only the selected option(s) in a Multiple Choice, Multiple Items, Checkboxes, or Checkbox Items field is displayed. To show all available options, enable the Unselected Choices option.
Enabling this option will display all options and highlight the selected choice.
HTML and Content fields are hidden in the view entry page by default. If you’d like to show them, you’ll need to enable the HTML/Content Fields option.
Section Dividers are also hidden by default on the view entry page. To show them, select the Section Dividers option.
Page Breaks are hidden by default in the entry view page. To show them when viewing a specific form entry, select the Page Breaks option.
The Display Settings has 2 options for customizing the layout of form fields in the View Entry page.
This option shows the fields the same way they appear in the frontend. For instance, if you’re using the Layout field to group your fields into different columns, enabling the Maintain Layouts option will display the fields using the same layout you configured.
This option displays the entry content in two columns, allowing you to fit more information on a single page. To enable it, toggle on the Compact View option.
Note: You won’t be able to use the Compact View and Maintain Layouts options simultaneously.
That’s it! Now you know the various field and display settings options for customizing the entry view page.
