Viewing Form Templates

WPForms makes it quick and easy to browse form templates right from the WordPress admin dashboard. To view the templates, log in to your WordPress admin area and go to WPForms » Form Templates.


This will bring you to the Form Templates screen, where you’ll see a library of all the templates available in WPForms.


To view the templates available with your license level, click Available Templates in the left side menu.


Note: Want access to more form templates? Upgrade to the WPForms Pro license level to access hundreds of templates.

To search for specific types of forms, utilize the search bar on the left. Type in keywords or WPForms field names to quickly locate templates matching your needs. For example, searching “File Upload” or “Multiple Items” filters templates with those fields.


Or, if you’d like to browse the templates by category, click on the categories listed in the menu on the left.


Note: Don’t see a template in our library that fits your needs? Feel free to suggest a template idea to our team.

Saving Your Favorite Form Templates

With a simple click, you can save any of the templates as a favorite. This allows you to quickly access your favorite templates for future use without searching through the template library.

To save a specific template as one of your favorites, click the heart icon.


Once you save a form as a favorite, a new “Favorites” category will be added to the list in the menu on the left. Go ahead and click Favorites to quickly access the template(s) you’ve marked as your favorite.


If you’d like to remove a form from your favorites list, click the heart icon again, removing the red background color.
