How to use JotForm with WordPress to add contact forms to your site
Many people know JotForm as a world-class online form builder. It can be used for anything from contact forms, to surveys, to payment forms. It’s easy to use, and free up to 100 submissions a month. If you need a form, JotForm’s a great place to start.
Its forms can be embedded on any web page, or you can use the form’s permanent link. What if you have a WordPress site though? Themes can be bought from InkThemes, but it may not be as immediately obvious how to embed JotForm in it. As it turns out, there’s a WordPress plugin for that which allows you to readily add any form built with JotForm to your site.
First navigate to JotForm and create a form. You can start with one of the almost 8000 templates, or build it from scratch. Select one of the contact form templates and it will be added to the form builder. The form builder’s drag-and-drop interface allows you to arrange fields however you like. In minutes you can add a wide variety of fields and widgets, page breaks, conditional statements, and more.
Now log in to your WordPress site’s admin panel. Install the JotForm Embed Form plugin for WordPress. Instructions on that can be found here. Once installed, your posts and pages will have the familiar WordPress pencil in the toolbar.
To add a form to your site, just grant JotForm access to your forms, then select the form you’d like to display.
A shortcode will be placed in your page which will display as a form in JotForm.
Check the preview of the page, and you’ll see the form neatly displayed. And that’s it!
On a related note, if you happen to be using WordPress.com, the integration is already built in. Just post the permanent link to your form, and it will display the form when you view the page. More info on setting that up can be found here.
