How To Add A Poll Form In WordPress Using WPForms?
I am going to divide this entire tutorial into three easy steps:
- Create a new WordPress form using WPForms
- Advanced form customization
- Enable poll results in WordPress
Let’s start with our first step:
Step: 1 Create A New WordPress Form Using WPForms
First, you need to install and activate the WPForms in your WordPress website(if you already have, skip this step).
Navigate to Plugins>Add New and search for the WPForms. Then click on Install Now to install the plugin and after installation, final hit to Activate to make the plugin live on your website.
Once the plugin is live on your website, you’re ready to proceed further with installing the Surveys and Polls Addon. Go to WPForms>Addons and search for Surveys and Polls Addon.
Hit the Install Addon button and then Activate it, you are done!
Now let’s move to creating a new form using WPForms.
Go to WPForms>Add New and give a name to your form and choose the template called Poll Form.
Choosing a pre-built Poll Form template will provide you with all basic fields of a Poll Form which you can customize through form editor for your form if you want to.
You can add more fields if you want, edit, add or remove the questions from your poll form.
To do this, click on the form question you want to edit and you will see options to edit appearing on the left-side. Something like shown in the below GIF.
You can change your questions to whatever you want to add for your visitors, you are also allowed to add the images to poll options.
Once you are done with customization, move to our 2nd step where we are going to do some advanced poll form customization.
Step: 2 Advanced Poll Form Customization
There are some more ways to customize your poll form if you scroll down to the bottom of the form editor, on the left side.
If you want your poll form choices should appear randomly to your website visitors, then make sure the Randomize Choices option is checked.
The second option is to change the Image Choice style if you have added the image choice in your poll form. It is Modern by default, you can change it Classic or none.
At the last, WPForms also give you the control over the layout of your poll form choices, you can select any of the following for your poll form:
- One Column
- Two Columns
That’s it! Your poll form is completed, now you can embed the form to your WordPress website wherever you want it to be displayed.
Step: 3 Enable Poll Results In WordPress
If you want to display your poll form results to your WordPress site visitors after they’ve filled out the form, you can easily do this by going to Settings>Surveys and Polls and check the option Enable Poll Results.
After checking the option, your visitors will be able to see the results after filling out the form.
Now let’s move ahead and create a custom confirmation message to your visitors which they will see after filling out the form.
For adding the confirmation message, go to Settings>Confirmation and select the Message in Confirmation Type dropdown option.
