WordPress is incredibly popular website management and blogging platform. Customers frequently inquire about the best way to add forms to their WordPress pages and posts. Not just any forms- they want to integrate complex forms that can be HIPAA-compliant and which can submit data securely through Secure Form.
There are numerous options here. The two most popular are GravityForms and embedding forms with an iframe. GravityForms is popular and very cool, but not free. Also, as GravityForms is complex and wants to manage all of your form data itself (insecurely), integration with Secure Form is limited:
- Multiple forms on the same page can be tricky
- Ink Signatures can not be captured
- File uploads can not be captured
Another alternative, which is free as it is included with your Secure Form service, is to:
- Build your form with Secure Form Form Builder
- Embed this form into your WordPress page or post using an iframe
What is an “iframe?” It is a tool that allows you to embed one web page within another web page. When you build a form with FormBuilder — that form is automatically saved and hosted securely for you, and you are provided with the website address (URL) for that form. You need to “insert” that hosted form into your WordPress page/post, and you are all set. All FormBuilder features are also supported: Ink Signatures, file uploads, geolocation, etc.
