 Once you have created a form, you can add it to any page or post on your site. To do so, follow these instructions:

Adding a Gravity Form to a Page or Post

While logged in to WordPress, go to the dashboard of your site. In the sidebar, select Pages or Posts. Then select the page or post you want to edit or create a new page or post. On the Edit Page or Edit Post page, there is a Text Editor. Within the Text Editor, in the top right, there is a button that says Add Form.

Add Form button

When you click Add Form, a window will pop up. From the drop-down, select the name of the form you want to add. Then choose whether or not to display the form's title and description. You can also click on Advanced Options to expand the menu if you want to configure them.

Insert Gravity Form box

After you select the form you want to insert and set display options, click Insert Form. A shortcode will then appear within your text editor. This will appear as the actual form when viewing the post or page.

Adding a Gravity Form with Page Builder

When Page Builder is active, you may notice that the Add Form button is not available when you edit a page or post. Fortunately, there is a way to add forms even while Page Builder is active.

(For more information about Page Builder, check out our article, Page Builder Basics.)

First, navigate to the page or post you want to add the form to. Then launch Page Builder in the Edit page or by clicking Page Builder in the WordPress admin toolbar. Once Page Builder is launched, search for WordPress Widgets in the sidebar. If the sidebar is not visible, press Add Content.

Click on WordPress Widgets to expand its options. Find the option called Form. Then drag and drop Form anywhere on your page, just as you would with a Page Builder module.

Widget options in Page Builder sidebar

A window will pop up where you can edit widget settings. As before, select the title of your form in the drop-down. Click Advanced Options to expand those options, if you wish to configure them. You can also edit the Advanced tab in the module settings, just as you can with any other module. For more information about Advanced Module Settings, see our article about editing modules. When you are done editing your form's settings, click Save. Your form now exists on your post or page. But remember, you still must save your changes when you exit Page Builder.

Form Widget Settings

To save your changes, click Done in the Page Builder header. Publish Changes to make your changes visible to the public right away, or Save Changes and Exit to keep them as a draft.
