How to use WP Forms widget

The WP Forms widget is a versatile form builder tool for Elementor. It’s one of the many important form builders we use inside our website every day.

This is a 3rd party widget in Element Pack and was integrated to provide for our consumers. Let’s see how you can use it.

Configuring WP Forms


First, go to Dashboard> Element Pack> 3rd Party Widgets> and find the Wp Forms widget. Click on the download icon to install it.

Note: WP Forms is a Freemium tool, both the Lite & Pro version works with Elementor.


After installing, you will find the WPForms option inside your dashboard. Go inside and click on the Add New button to create a new form.


You will be redirected to a new window where you will see form settings on the left side and layout options in the middle. Give a name to your form and select custom (Blank Form) or pre-made forms (Contact form, signup form).


Once the selection is done, on the next tab, you can add or remove items manually. Each item is designed as boxes. Just drag it inside the form building area to implement.


In the next section, you can add CSS style or change the messages for complete submission.

Additionally, you can add Marketing and Payments options on the form. Just keep in mind that these options will only work on the Pro version.

Inserting widget

Go to the Elementor page editor’s widget menu and search for the WP Forms widget. Then drag it inside the page.

Difference between WP Forms Global & Element Pack version

Element Pack boosts its name due to the feature that enables any non-customizable widget to become customizable.

That’s right!

Any widget under Element Pack is loaded with a ton of customizations. The WP Forms widget isn’t an exception.

Original WP Forms widget

Just the form selecting option and Advanced option for the page.

WP Forms EP version

Form selection option, Style tab for customizations, and the Advanced option.

Content tab

On the Content tab, you get the Layout section where you need to select your form.

Here, we selected the form we just made from the dashboard.

Now, this part is for customizing the form’s appearance. You can change a number of aspects starting from colors to borders.

It’s divided into six sections. Each one for different items of the content area.
