We generally add terms and conditions checkbox to WordPress to take the consent of a user before they register to the site. This field has many more uses to make for an efficient membership site form. Be it disclaimers, ownership privacy, policies or warranty etc this field can even have legal obligations.
However, with RegistrationMagic’s preset form fields, you can now easily add terms and conditions checkbox to WordPress form.
How to add checkbox in WordPress forms?
The RegistrationMagic plugin offers plenty of custom form fields to add to your forms. One of which is the “Terms and Conditions” field. This field adds a text and a checkbox by itself and makes the field mandatory. Users cannot submit a form without accepting the “Agree to Terms and Condition” mentioned in it.
Now, let us go ahead and see how we can add terms and conditions checkbox to WordPress form using RegistrationMagic.
Add Terms and Conditions Checkbox to WordPress Form
Visit the All Forms screen from the RegistrationMagic menu in your WordPress dashboard.
The All Forms page stores all the WordPress registration forms and contact forms that you create with this plugin. Now, select any form from here to add the WordPress terms and conditions field.
Move your cursor over the forms and you’ll see two links Fields and Dashboard appearing at the two bottom corners.
Click on the Fields link. The link will lead you to the “Field Manager” page for this form. From here you can add/remove any field you want. Any field you add from the Field Manager page of a form stays unique to it.
Next, click on the “Add Field” link at the top corner of the page, below the “Field Manager” heading.
A popup will appear after clicking on the Add Field link. This popup shows all the custom fields that you can add to your RegistrationMagic form. Find the “T&C Checkbox” field in this list and click on it. It comes under the “Special Fields” section. This is the field that we’ll use to add terms and condition for site registration forms.
Setting up Terms and Condition for Website
After clicking on this field link, you’ll arrive at the Terms and Conditions settings page.
The first option is to set the type of the Field. You can change the field type from the drop down here as well. Next, give the Label to the field, this text depicts the label that will appear on the frontend form. Then comes the Checkbox Label, this text appears beside the tiny checkbox on the form. I set the text as “I Accept” to make it my user policy agreement checkbox. One can name it anything as per their need.
Next, add the “Terms & Conditions” text which will display on the form as the actual text that users will have to agree to. You will see that the little text box has a scroller and has got no character or word limits.
Then there are other elements that you can add to the field, such as the Hover Text. This text will appear on the “Terms and Conditions” field space when a user hovers the cursor over it, like a tooltip. You can also set an icon for the field from the Icon Settings. You can configure more settings for this field from the Advanced Settings section.
Finally, to apply this field to your form, just click on the Add to Form button. To see a preview of the form with the new field, click on the “Preview” link at the bottom of the Field Manager page.
