Using Wufoo

A form is a great way to allow your visitors to contact you, or to collect information on your site. Yola has their own Form Widget. However, we also offer you another form option through Wufoo. This also gives you a fully functional, customized form that you can add to your site. Wufoo offers both free and paid services.

These are the steps to adding a form from Wufoo:

1. Go to Widgets.

2. On the drop-down menu, click Forms.

3. Drag and drop a Wufoo Form widget onto your page.

5. Sign up for an account and create your form. If you need help, you can check out Wufoo's Support Page.

6. When you are done creating your form, click Code.

7. You will be given various options for integrating your form. Select one of the first three options given to place onto your site.

8. Go back to your site in the Sitebuilder.

9. Copy the HTML code (use Ctrl-c or highlight with cursor > right-click > copy) and paste it into the Wufoo dialog box that opened when you dropped the widget (use Ctrl-V or right-click > paste to paste the code).

10. Click Save

The form will be added to your page.

You can manage your responses in your Wufoo account or edit the settings so that you receive an email whenever someone has completed the form.

Hint: Be sure to include links on your site at relevant points that will take your visitors to your contact form page (we have a link editor that allows you to do this). You can then either reply to them personally or post their comments directly onto your site.
