Hello and happy December! It’s Miriam from Inside Miriam’s Mind here bringing you the very first post of ‘A LTBL Christmas’. I’m so happy to be a part of this post series! I hope you enjoy it!
Today’s post will be on how to create and embed Google forms into your WordPress posts. This is such a useful tool and you should definitely take advantage of it! Not only is Google Forms free, but very simple to use once you know how to!
How To Create a Form:
1.Open Google Forms.
2.Sign in to your Google account. If you have multiple Google accounts, ensure that you’re using the correct one (Example: if you have a blog account, use it and not your personal)
3.Enter a title.
4.Add further information in the description.
5.Begin adding questions. There are multiple different question options. Such as a paragraph, multiple-choice, linear scale, and many more.
6.I’m not going into much detail here because it’s self-explanatory. If you need any further help, comment below.
7.Now that your form is created, it’s time to embed it into your WordPress post!
How To Embed A Google Form into A WordPress Post:
1.You’ll need to have your WordPress post editor open and ready for your forum.
2.Click on the form page and find the large purple button in the top left that says “share”.
3.Then click the icon on the far right that looks like two arrows facing each other (< >).
4.Now click the large purple button that says “copy”. Don’t change the width and length (in pixels) because WordPress will edit this once you’ve embedded it into your post.
5.Click back to the WordPress post editor. And click the three vertical dots in the top right corner.
6.You’ll then click the “code editor button”. Your post will immediately stitch to the coded version of your post. (This may look odd at first, or that you did something wrong. It’s normal and you’ll change it back to the visual editor when you’re done.)
7.Find the space you’d like to insert the forum. Then, copy the embed link into that space.
8.Click the three vertical dotes again, and click back to the “visual editor” in the black font.
9.The forum will likely be tall and skinny, this is fine. Once you post the post, the form will stretch itself to fit the post perfectly.
10.The last step is to click “preview” in the blue font in the top right corner. You’ll see it looks like the form fits the post. Confirm that that’s how you’d like the post to look when it’s posted.
I hope you found that informative and simple to understand. As always, if you have any questions, I’d be happy to help you in the comments.
Thank you for reading! Happy December!
