How to Embed a Google Form in WordPress
Now that you have learned what Google Forms is and its benefits, it’s time to learn how to embed Google Forms in WordPress.
Here is a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Create The Form
The first step in the process is to create the form by visiting the Google Forms dashboard (don’t forget to log in to your Google account).
Now, you will see a template gallery where you can choose any template per your requirements or start with a Blank template.
As an example, I am using the “Contact Information” template. Here, you can edit the form as per your need, like adding new questions, adding new fields, inserting images, and many more customization, as shown in the image above.
You can also change a few settings from the “Settings” tab, as shown in the image above.
Step 2: Generate Embed Code
Once you have successfully created your form, the next step is to generate the embed code. To get started, simply click on the “Send” button; here, you will see different options to send your Google Form.
Once that has been done, click on the “< >” tab.
You will then need to copy the “Embed HTML” code and paste it into the form, as shown in the image above. However, here you may also have the option to customize the width and height of your form.
Step 3: Embed Google Form in Post or Page
After generating the embed code, the last step is to add the code to your WordPress blog. Simply open any post or page where you want to insert Google Form.
The next step is to click the “+” icon and select the “Custom HTML” block option from the drop-down menu.
The next step is to copy the embed code you created earlier and paste it into the provided HTML field, as shown in the screenshot we shared below.
You can click the “Preview” button to see if the form is functioning properly. If you are using a page builder plugin such as Divi or Elementor, you can follow a similar method to embed forms on your website. And if you’re not using one, we highly recommend getting a page builder for your website.
Plus, with the use of our exclusive divi discount code, you can save a flat 10% OFF on your purchase).
Once you have pasted the code into your post or page, all you have to do is save it and publish it, and then you will be able to see how it looks on the live website.
We have seen how to embed Google Forms in the WordPress Gutenberg editor, but many people are still working on the old WordPress Classic editor.
So, here is how you can insert your form in the classic editor:
Open any post or page and switch to the Text in the editor. Here, just paste the form embed code and switch back to the Visual tab to see your form preview.
And voila!! You have successfully embedded your Google Form in the WordPress blog.
