WordPress is the king of today’s internet. Even the world‘s most famous brands use WordPress. Here is a short tutorial on how to embed a RandomPicker form into your WordPress website. RandomPicker provides a registration module – it’s a simple form where participants can submit their name, email, address or any other text information. The data is stored directly in the RandomPicker database so you don’t need to import them manually. You can read more about the collection form and widget here. WordPress can be managed with its standard editors (Classic Editor or Gutenberg). Many WordPress admins use builders to enhance features and the look of their webpages without coding. The most popular builders are Elementor, Divi or Beaver Builder.
Activate the form
Go to the RandomPicker project you want to embed and make sure the collection form is activated in the project settings: Entries > Collect by widget > Form is active = On. Then log in to your WordPress administration and go to the page or post where you plan to add the form.
