Users just have to copy this shortcode. Then go to a new WordPress page and paste it over there. Finally, after naming the page and publishing it users can very simply, display WordPress form using shortcode.
RegistrationMagic formats the page on its own so that you don’t need to design it. But, if you want to customize your form page then using a WordPress Page Builder plugin is a good option.

Click on “Widget” and then look for the RegistrationMagic Form widget. After creating a form with this plugin, you will find a RegistrationMagic form widget in the list of widgets.
This widget will offer you the option to select your desired form, without the need of using any shortcode.
