How to Create a Multi-Page Form in WordPress

Step 1: Install and Activate the Plugin & Addon

Firstly, you need to install and activate the WPForms plugin on your WordPress website.

Please note that the free version of the WPForms plugin doesn’t come with the Page break functionalities so you’ll need to buy a Pro license of WPForms to get access to this feature. You can get WPForms Pro License at a discounted price by clicking here.

Once you’ve purchased the license key, just head to WPForms >>Settings from your WordPress dashboard and verify the license key to get started.

You can also select any other template based on your form requirements such as Servey form, Job application form, Poll form, and more.

Step 3: Split Your Form to Multi-Page

After customizing the form fields for your form, you’re ready to add a new page to your form.

To do this, click on the Pagebreak field from the left-hand panel under the Fancy Fields section and place it in your form where you want to split it.
