Do you want to show your WordPress form entries on the front end of your site?

Displaying form entries on the front end allows you to show important information to your visitors. You can use it to show positive reviews, create directories, display event calendars, and more.

In this article, we’ll show you how to display WordPress form entries on your site.

Let’s see how you can show form entries on the front end of your WordPress website using Formidable Forms and WPForms. You can click the links below to jump ahead to your preferred section.

Upon activation, you can go to Formidable » Forms and click the ‘+ Add New’ button at the top.

Go ahead and select your preferred form type. For the sake of this tutorial, we’ll create a contact form to collect testimonials from users.

Next, you’ll need to enter a form name and description.

When you’re done, simply click the ‘Create’ button.

Now you can use the form builder to customize your form.

Formidable offers a drag and drop builder which is super easy to use. Simply select any form field you would like to add to your form from the options on your left and place them in the form template.

After customizing your contact form, go ahead and embed it anywhere on your website.

The plugin offers multiple options to add your form. The easiest way is to click the ‘Embed’ button in the form builder at the top and then select an existing page or create a new page to add your form.

Next, you can give a name to your page and preview it.

When you’re satisfied with its appearance, go ahead and publish your page.

After your form is live, and you start to get entries, then you’ll need to install and activate the Visual Views addon in Formidable Forms.

To do that, simply go to Formidable » Add-Ons from your WordPress dashboard. Next, scroll down to the ‘Visual Views’ addon and click the ‘Install’ button.

Once the addon is active, you can go to Formidable » Views from your WordPress dashboard.

After that, simply click the ‘+ Add New’ button at the top.

For this tutorial, we’ll use the ‘Grid’ view to show form entries.

After that, you will have to select a data source for your view.

Go ahead and click on the ‘Use Entries from Form’ dropdown menu and select your form. There’s also an option to enter a view name.

After selecting your data source, simply click the ‘Create a view’ button.

This will launch the view builder in Formidable Forms.

To get started, go ahead and click the ‘Layout Builder’ button.

Next, you’ll need to select a layout to display your form entries.

Simply choose a layout from the given options at the top. You can add multiple layouts to show form entries.

After selecting a layout, go ahead and click the ‘Save layout’ button.

Next, you can add content to the view builder by clicking the ‘+’ button. There are options to customize the layout of the form entries and add content before and after the form entries.

You’ll also see a shortcode under the View Name field, which you’ll need when showing form entries on your site.

There are more advanced options in the Grid Style Settings panel. In the advanced settings, you can limit the number of entries, page size, and more.

When you’ve customized the view, don’t forget to click the ‘Update’ button at the top.

Next, you’ll need to display your form entries on your WordPress website. To do that, copy the shortcode given under the View Name.

The shortcode will look like this:

Now, enter the shortcode you copied earlier in the shortcode block.

After that, you can preview the page and publish it.

You can now visit your website to see the form entries in action.

Here’s what they look like on our demo website:

After adding the custom code to your website, you’ll need to enter the following shortcode to any page or post to show form entries.

Just replace the FORMID with your form’s ID.

You can find the form ID by going to WPForms » All Forms and then looking at the Shortcode column.

To add a shortcode, simply create a new page or edit an existing one.

Next, go ahead and add a ‘Shortcode’ block.

After adding the block, simply enter your shortcode.

Now preview your WordPress page and click the ‘Publish’ button at the top.

Here’s what the preview of our form entries looked like on the front-end:

You can further customize the display using custom CSS styles as needed.
