Navigating to the Image Widget

First, install the RegistrationMagic plugin on your dashboard. After activating it you will find the plugin menu on your menu panel.

From there, click on the All Forms link.

Then you will land on the All Forms page. Here you will find all the forms that you create through this plugin. On every form cover in this page, you will find two links: Fields and Dashboard.

The Dashboard link lets you take care of the WordPress form design, security, payment etc.

While the Fields link lets you add custom Fields and Widgets to your default form.

Click on the Fields link, to land on the Fields Manager page.

Here you will find all the Fields that you add to a certain form. Besides, all the Fields and Widgets that add to each form remain unique to it.

Now, click on the All Field link at the top left corner of the page. You will find a pop-up with all the preset fields and widgets of the plugin.

From here, click on the Image Widget under Display Fields to add an image of your choice to WordPress forms.

The Display Field generally contains all the WordPress widgets that can add visual read-only elements to the form.

There are other Display Widgets such as maps, links, price, form meta data, timer etc that can make your default form fit for any industry usage.

Tips: With the custom widgets of RegistrationMagic users can add registration feed to WordPress form. So that you can show your users the number of successful submissions on that form.

Now, after selecting the Image Widget you will land on the Image Widget Settings page. From here you can upload any image from your WordPress image gallery to add to your form.

Setting up the Image Widget

At the Image Widget page, you will find the following options to add and define the image that you want to add to WordPress forms.

First, assign the Label with the term “Image”. The name that you add here will not appear on the form. This Label will only define this image widget in the Field Manager page.

Next, select the Image from your WordPress image gallery. This will be the image that you want to add to your form. Upload the image and embed it on your form.

Then go to the next setting and set the size of the image from there. You will be able to see a drop-down with options such as Thumbnail, 50%, and 100%. These options define the size your image will take in your form.

Once you assign the size, go to the next settings. On checking the Effects Box, you can apply effects to your image. Likewise, you can set the border color, width and shape of your image.

Then the Link field lets you add a URL or page link to your image as per your choice. Clicking on the image will take your users to the page of your choice.

Next, check the “Display as popup” option if you want. On checking the box your image will appear as a pop up when users click on it.

Then the Caption and the Title fields assign captions below and titles above the image. Both options are not mandatory. But if you want to define your image in the form then you can add a title or caption to it.

A CSS modifies the way a page looks. However, you must define the CSS class inside the coded file. Remember to add the class with an HTML code.
