We have already learned how to create custom forms with the WPForms plugin. Now, we must add the forms we created to our pages or posts. To do this, we will only need to embed a shortcode. In this article, you will learn about shortcodes and how to embed forms with the WPForms plugin for BoldGrid.

"Embed" simply means we are adding a piece of code to our site that will render a page element. In this case, we embed a small piece of code and it will render a full contact form. No extra coding required.

These same steps can be replicated for adding both custom and pre-built forms to any page or post. The WPForms plugin has many pre-built forms for you to choose. So, you can add a form right away without needing to create one yourself.

Follow along with the steps below. You will want to have your browser open to your webpage. We are going to be grabbing a form shortcode and pasting it into a chosen page. So you will want to have a page in mind that you would like to use.

Can you please clarify your question? If you wanted a form on all pages, then you'd have to go to the Pages section of your WordPress Administrator and make sure the form was on all the pages. If you are a different question, please let us know.
