You will redirect to the form embed codes page. Now here you will find four different code options for embedding and sharing form, the first two are described below. Here are they:
1. Embed Sliding Form.
In this option, you will find the sub-options as sliding position, slide text, background color and font color. Set them according to you and copy the code.
Now you can use this code in differents ways to embed the form in your website. Here are the ways described as follows:
To embed the form in Non-WordPress site.
To make sliding a form view in your website, just paste the code in between the head tags as shown below.
Save the file and view the page. You will get to see the contact form as shown:
As you can see in the picture above, there is a small Contact Us CTA on the homepage. When a visitor clicks on it, the form will open up.
Importance of Sliding Forms
It is another smart and easy FormGet Method to display form.
1# Increase conversion rate:
It’s true. As you can see above, the form is displaying on the home page. So, there is a 5 times more probability of good quality leads. It will automatically increase the conversion rate.
2# Looks Smart and Occupies less space:
As you can see in the above image, the FormGet’s Tabbed form is present in the form of small but beautiful CTA, it smartly occupies less space. Additionally, it is very easy to implement on your website.
To embed the sliding contact form in WordPress site.
In your WordPress site you again have two ways to embed the form, either, you paste the code in header.php file or you can use the FormGet Plugin directly.
1. How to use the code if the plugin is not installed.
- Go to your site’s dashboard and open up the Appearance-> Editor. There you will see a file naming header.php.
- Open it and paste the code between head tags.
- Update the file and view your website now.
2. How to embed the form using FormGet Plugin.

- After successful installation. Click on Contact Form option provided in the left sidebar.
- There you will see the option as Embed Code, click on it and paste the code in the space provided.
- Select the pages in which you wish to show the form.
- Click on Save.
2. Embed Full Form.
In this option, you will find two sub-options Embed Form 1 (with design including header & footer) and Embed Form 2 Plain Form (without header & footer). As per wish copy the code for anyone of the embed type and paste it where you wish to view the form.
- Embed Form 1(With design including header and footer).
If you wish to view the form with complete designing that includes header and footer, then copy the code for Embed Form 1. Before copying the code you can adjust the form height and preview it. Now use the code as described below:
1. In Non-WordPress sites.
Paste the iframe code in the website code, in the place where do you wish to make form view. Save the file and preview the page.
2. In WordPress sites.
You have to follow the same step for WordPress site too. Just place the code in your posts/pages under text mode and update it.
The form output will show up like this
- Embed Form 2 Plain Form(Without header and footer).
Adjust the width of the form and preview it. Now copy the code and use it in the same way as illustrated above for Complete form view. You will see the form output as:
Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Add FormGet Widget in any of the widget areas like Primary, secondary etc. For adding FormGet Widget, you have to keep in mind that FormGet plugin must have installed first. Now paste the plain form iframe code or WordPress short- code in an area provided.
You will receive the output as shown in the below figure.
Now there are other two options provided under Embed Form page. The third one is for WordPress Shortcode in which, you are provided with the short-code for plain form and sliding form. You have to just place these codes(Web Form Generator) in your pages/posts and you will see the form start appearing there. That the fourth one is for a form direct link.
3. Embed form using WordPress shortcode.
Now in this option you have two shortcodes, one for Sliding form and another for a Plain contact form.
Just place the code in the page/post as shown below.
- For sliding for you can place the code anywhere in that page/post, but it is better to put it at the bottom.
- For plain form, place the code where you wish the form to appear. Or you can place this code in widgets. Install the FormGet plugin and add a FormGet widget in any of your widget areas and place the shortcode as explained above.
4. Share the form direct link.
You can use form unique link if you don’t have any website. Just share the link and get your form live with the complete form view.
You will see the form output with the complete design that you have done in edit design section.
