WordPress Tutorials, Tips, and Resources to Help Grow Your Business
Do you want to reuse one of your WordPress forms? By copying your form, you’ll make quick work of creating the new form. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to duplicate a WordPress form.
When to Duplicate a Form
Copying a form will save you time, since you don’t have to rebuild one from scratch each time.
Some of the most common reasons for duplicating a form are:
- Frequently used fields that appear in most forms on your website can be cloned.
- Testing a form using A/B or split testing can be easy when you duplicate and rearrange the form to measure conversions.
- Style forms individually by creating multiple variations. You can design one form better suited for a sidebar, and another for embedding into a contact page.
How to Duplicate a WordPress Form
Also, you’ll need to have a form created. See our tutorial on How to Create a Simple Contact Form as an example to get started.
After you’ve created your initial form, go to WPForms » All Forms. With your mouse hovered over the options below the form titles, you’ll see Duplicate. Select this option.
In the popup modal, confirm that you want to duplicate this form.
You’ll notice that the title is identical, except that the new form has “(ID #)” included. To change the title of the new form, or to modify the form contents and layout, go to Edit.
Then from Setup, change the form name.
From here, you can edit the fields, settings, and other integrations as you normally would.
Now you’re all set! You’ve duplicated a form with data from existing forms within your website. Now, whenever you’ve made a customized form, you’ll save yourself the time and energy of recreating a similar form.
