How to Quickly Create a Multi-Page Form in WordPress

Do you need to collect a ton of information from a WordPress contact or registration form? While you should always try to keep your forms as short as possible, there are still times when it’s unavoidable.

In such cases, it might be a better idea to create a multi-page form, instead of one long single-page form. With a multi-page form, at least users won’t be immediately overwhelmed by all of the information that you’re trying to collect!

In this post, I’m going to show you how to quickly create a multi-page form in WordPress using our very own Registration Magic plugin.

How to Create a Multi-Page Form for Your WordPress Site

One quick note before I begin – in order to create a multi-page form, you’ll need the Premium version of Registration Magic. You can purchase it by heading here.

Once you’ve got the premium version installed, you’re ready to get started.

Begin by going to Registration Magic → Add Form to create a new form:

Give it a name and select what type of form you want to create. You can either create a WP Registration Form if you want to create new user accounts or use a Non-WP Registration form if you don’t want to create new user accounts (for example, a multi-page contact form).

At the bottom of this page, you can also choose whether or not you want to enable a Previous button on your multi-page form. When checked, users will not be able to move back to previous pages in the form:

Once you save those changes, you’ll be in your form’s dashboard.

How to Add New Fields and Pages

To add fields and pages, scroll down and find the Look and Feel box:

On the Fields Manager page you can do two things:

  • Add new fields to each form page
  • Add new pages to your form

To add fields to the first page of your form, just click on a field at the top:

create-a-multi-page-form-4

Once you’re happy with Page 1, you can add a new page by clicking on the New Page button:

create-a-multi-page-form-5

Then, you just need to repeat the process for as many fields and pages as you need! Head back to your form’s dashboard when you’re finished.

How to Style Your Brand New Multi-Page Form

If you’d like to add custom styling to your multi-page form, you can easily do that using real-time editing by going to Design under Look and Feel on your form’s dashboard:

create-a-multi-page-form-6

Then, simply click on one of the highlighted areas to edit its styling:

How to Embed Your Multi-Page Form

Ok, now that you’ve created a WordPress form with multiple pages, you need to actually embed it so that your visitors can use your new form!

To do that, all you need to do is grab the shortcode from you form’s dashboard:

create-a-multi-page-form-8

Then, add that shortcode to whichever post or page where you’d like your multi-page form to appear. Once you publish that post or page, you should see your form on the front-end!

With Registration Magic Premium, it’s easy to create multiple page forms using WordPress. In fact, it really doesn’t take any more effort than creating a regular single-page form!
