How to Make a Form on Your Page Align with AWeber Form

If you’re new to WordPress, you may be wondering how to make a form on your page. Forms are incredibly useful, as they allow users to provide feedback or complete tasks (e.g., leave a review, find a product, etc.). They can be integrated with other systems (e.g., MailChimp) or used independently.

You don’t need a form for every element on your page. For example, maybe you want to add a contact form or an online store form. However, sometimes it’s hard to find the right tool for the job. That’s where this post comes in. We’ll teach you how to easily create a form on your WordPress page, with the assistance of a plugin called AWeber Form. And, if you follow along, you’ll be able to add multiple forms on your page and have them all work together!

Before we get started, it’s important to note that AWeber Form is a form builder for WordPress – meaning it helps you build forms for submission via email or other methods.

In this article, we’ll cover the following topics:

Getting Started

Before you start designing your form, it’s important to set some ground rules. The first thing you should do is create a form for submissions via email. Go through the motions of creating a simple email form – including a subject line, email body, and input fields (where users can enter their name, email, etc.). Once you have that set up, you can use AWeber Form to start building out additional forms on your page.

Step 1: Design Your Email Form

When designing your email form, you should follow these guidelines:

  • Keep it simple. Keep your form as easy to understand as possible. Clutter-free design is ideal. Keep things as lean as possible.
  • Use action buttons (e.g., submit, save, or preview).
  • Use consistent fonts and colors. (You can use the color picker from Canva to select a color for your text.)
  • Make it mobile friendly. Look at how users interact with mobile forms. Design templates used on mobile devices should be simple, clean, and easy to use.

We recommend starting with a single column layout for your email form. You can use the Custom CSS trick to position the form element in the center of your page (using the calc method).

Step 2: Add Multiple Forms To One Page

With AWeber Form, it’s easy to add additional forms to one page – allowing you to build out an entire form for users to submit via email. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Click the + icon to add another form (which will appear below the first form you added).
  • Complete the new form, filling in the required fields.
  • Click the Preview button to review your work.
  • Click the Submit button at the bottom of the form to send it to the admin (for approval).

Once you’ve added all of the forms you want to add to one page, you can grab the ID of the last form you created (using the [id] attribute) and input it into your website’s URL, like this:

https://yoursite.com/contact?[id]=5

…which will direct users to the contact page with the id of the last form set to 5.

This is important, as forms are very useful and can help drive traffic to your site – but they can also be incredibly annoying to users if they aren’t submitted correctly. By associating submit buttons with contact forms, you can be certain that your users will always be directed to the proper page.

Step 3: Design The Contact Page

Your contact page is the starting point for new interactions or communications with users of your site. It’s a good idea to design this page with a bit of artistry – adding some color, imagery, and animation can greatly enhance its user experience. Your contact page should not only have the necessary contact information, but it should also feature an action button (e.g., Call Us, Get In Touch, or Visit Our Site) that leads to a conversion goal (e.g., a store’s “buy now” button, a blog’s “read more” button, etc.).

To add more interactions to the contact page, you can add a form for requesting more information or leaving a comment. You can also add a review form, a photo album form, or an event registration form.

Once you’ve added all of the forms you want to add to one page, you can grab the ID of the last form you created (using the [id] attribute) and input it into your website’s URL, like this:

https://yoursite.com/contact?[id]=5

…which will direct users to the contact page with the id of the last form set to 5.

Step 4: Add Meta Data For Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of creating content and getting citations (e.g., backlinks) that will improve a site’s rankings in the organic search results for keywords related to the content.

SEO is very useful for blogs and news sites, as it allows them to compete for organic search results for specific keywords. If a website is optimized for keyphrases related to its content, users can more easily find what they’re looking for. When designing SEO-rich content, it’s important to keep the structure of the web page intact – creating a navigation menu along the top and adding solid keywords throughout the copy, images, and links.

Step 5: Test The Form

When designing a form, you have to remember to test it. Even if you create an extremely simple form, there is no guarantee that it will function exactly as you want. To ensure that your email form functions properly, you can use these two methods:

  • Go through the motions of submitting a form. Remember, you’re building a form for testing purposes – so you may not want to do anything too strenuous just yet.
  • Fill in the form with as much information as possible and then select the Preview button. This will cause the form to display all of its fields – including hidden ones – allowing you to locate any errors before sending it off for review.

Once you’ve tested the form, you can use the final version to send out to users. Remember to remove the ID of the last form you created (using the [id] attribute) from the URL, otherwise you risk sending users to the contact page.

…or to a different form altogether.

Word of warning: Don’t use the Preview button if you’re not comfortable removing content from your website once it’s been posted. You may want to use this feature to double-check for minor errors – but make sure you remove all content before doing so.

Step 6: Keep Building!

Once you’ve mastered the basics of creating a form on your page, it’s time to create more! Don’t forget: With WordPress, all you need is the will to create and people to help you implement.
