Using Forms to Interact With Content

In WordPress, we use Forms to allow users to enter information that will then be forwarded to the appropriate department. Our Website Request Form is an example of such a tool. As content contributors to a website, we have the ability to create these Forms and use them to interact with our users. Here we will show you how to create and manage Forms on our website.

FormsNavigate to the Forms tab to the left of your Dashboard. Here you will find a list of all of the Forms created by every user on your website. You can also see how many people view each Form and use it to submit information. To create a new Form, simply click the “Add New” button at the top of the page.

This will bring you to the Form Editor. On the top toolbar you have the settings that allow you to edit the broader settings associated with your Form. On the right you will see all of the different options of fields you can incorporate into your Form. Essentially, to use a field on the right, simply select it and the blank field will appear in your Form to the left. 

Form Field

Once you have selected and inserted your fields into your Form, you have the freedom to drag-and-drop the fields. Each field also has specific settings that allow you to customize the field to your needs.

Forms in WordPress provide us with so many options that there are very few limits to the kinds of Forms that we can create.
