Now, a form setup screen will open. Here you need to add a name to your form and select the form template you want to use.

WPForms templates

WPForms offers 400+ pre-built professional-looking form templates. All form templates are completely customizable; you can select any template and use it on your website.

Here we’ll choose a Simple Contact Form Template.

Selecting the Simple Contact Form template

Once you click on the template, you’ll be redirected to the WPForms form builder dashboard.

You can view your contact form on the right, and the left side contains the additional form field options.

WPForms comes with an easy drag and drop builder. You can drag form fields from this builder and drop them into your contact form. If your form is a long one, it might be a good idea to let users preview their entries before submitting them.

You can also add, remove and edit form fields just with a single click.

WPForms Form Settings

With WPForms, you also get the flexibility to configure the following form settings:

  1. Configure form general settings: You can change the form title, description, and submit button text. Also, to stop contact form spam, you can enable the hCaptcha and anti-spam features of WPForms.
  2. Customize form notifications settings: You can add email addresses that will receive notifications about form submissions. Also, you can add multiple form notifications to send your customers a notification email receipt once they fill out your form.
  3. Configure form confirmations settings: You can customize the confirmation message users will receive from you once they submit their order form. You can show your users a personalized message, display a beautiful Thank You page, or redirect them to a different website.

Once you’re done with all the customization options, don’t forget to click on the Save button at the top right corner of the page. Also, you can preview your form by clicking on the Preview button.

Now, we’ll see how you can embed your form into a page on your WordPress website.

With WPForms, you can add your form to a page using 2 methods:

Step 3: Add WPForms to a Page With the Embed Wizard (Method 1)

WPForms has a built-in Embed button that allows you to add your form on any website page without switching the tab or closing the form window.

You can add your freshly made contact form directly from the form builder dashboard. To add your form, click on the Embed button at the top of the form builder.

Clicking the embed button will open a popup window with 2 form embedding options.

The Embed in a Page popup

  • Select Existing Page: This option allows you to choose from the existing pages of your websites.
  • Create New Page: If you want to display your form on a new page, you can use this option to create a new page and then add your form.

Choose the option that’s best for you. If you create a new page, you’ll also need to enter a title for it.

Then click the Let’s Go button. Your form will automatically be added to your page and all you have to do is click Publish or Update.

Step 4: Add WPForms to a Page With the Block Editor (Method 2)

In this method, we’ll use the WPForms block to embed the contact form on a page.

First, open the page where you want to add your contact form. Then click on the plus (+) icon and choose the WPForms block from the available options.

Now, select your form and update the page from the dropdown.

This is how a Simple Contact Form looks on a live page.

Now your form is reading to go and users can start filling it out! There’s just one more thing to check out.

Especially for large sites with lots of forms, it can be hard to keep track of everywhere you’ve published your contact form. WPForms helps fix this by showing your forms’ locations.

To view where your contact form is embedded, go to WPForms » All Forms. Then open the Screen Options at the top of the page and make sure the Locations checkbox is selected.

Select locations option

This will add a column to the table with all your forms that shows the number of places you’ve added each form. Click on it to reveal all the locations for a specific form.

This way you can always easily see which page your contact form is on.

  1. Is there a way to embed the form to generate a code to embed in an external page (not wordpress) ?

    1. Hey Daniel – I apologise but this is not possible out of the box. This is because WPForms is a WordPress plugin and you will need a WordPress site to make in order to use the WPForms.

      Thanks.

  2. How do I feature the “Request Button” Popup next to my add to cart button of my product page?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Hazem,

      Yes, notification emails can be received and sent to the submitter if the site is hosted on local environment.

    1. Hey Lucy, I am sorry but it is not possible to add a form to all pages at once, a closer workaround would be to add to create a short and add it to your page templates as outlined here.

      I hope this helps.
