How to create a form in WordPress
Follow these four simple steps to create a WordPress form.
- Go to 'Formidable' → 'Forms' and click Add New at the top of the page. This will take you to the form maker page.
- Start with a template or a blank form. To use a template, select an item from the dropdown list and select 'Load Template'. To create a contact form, select the 'Contact us' form template.
- Add fields to your form. You can either use the drag and drop form maker or click on the field name to add fields at the end of the form. Learn more about the different field types.
- Click 'Create'. This saves your form and takes you to the Form Settings page.
You have just created a form! To preview it, just click the 'Preview' button.
Build GDPR compliant forms
For more detail on GDPR and what it is, read more in the blog about how to make GDPR compliant WordPress forms.
If you are not collecting any personal information you can keep your surveys, polls, and other forms anonymous. Go to the Formidable -> Global settings page and check the "do not store IPs with form submissions" box to disable IP tracking. This affects future entries only. Removing IP addresses in existing submissions will need to be done manually in the database.
Request consent for personal information
To request consent, all you need is a required checkbox. Read more about how to include a link to agree to terms.
Allow access and deletion of personal data
Learn more in the blog about the steps to GDPR compliance for the right to access and be forgotten.
