A list of predefined Form Templates is available for you. You can choose any one of them. As you're creating a post form, so on the Post Form template. It will generate a form for you.

So after selecting the Post Form, you'll get the options to create your first form. Now, Give the form a title on the form.

Here you can input the information in two ways. First, select each section and customize it.

Or you can directly add your preferred items from the left sidebar. Here you can add category and tag fields for your users to use.

When you are done building your form, hit save. On the right side of the post creation screen, you will see the shortcode. If you can not, then head over to the forms listing page.

Embedding forms

After creating a form, you will get a shortcode like this: [[wpuf_form id="2541"]], inserting this shortcode to a page will show the form. Here are the steps to follow-

1. You can copy the shortcode of your newly created form directly from the form builder. Just click on the shortcode which is placed above the form. It will automatically copy the shortcode to your clipboard.

2. You can also copy the shortcode from the right side of the form or the forms listing page.
