Now it’s time to replace your old Contact Form 7 form with your newly imported WPForms form.

To do this, go to the place on your website where you old form is embedded.

For our example, our old form was embedded on a blog post, so we’ll go to the blog post and open the Page Editor.

Next, click on the Add Form button and select the imported form you want to add to your website from the dropdown menu. Again, click Add Form.

You’ll notice a new shortcode has now been added to the Page Editor.

Now, you can preview your page or post to make sure the imported form still looks the way you want it to. This is what our form looks like:

Final Form

If you want to make changes to this form, all you have to do is go to WPForms » All Forms, and find the form you want to change.

Customize Final Form

Here you can either click on the form name, or hover over the form name and click Edit. This will bring you to the WPForms form builder where you can customize the form in any way you want.
