Form building can be tricky the first few times until you get used to the different items and their ideal uses. Text input fields are typically easy to understand, but multi-select items used to select pre-filled choices are more complex. These items include:
- Radio Buttons
When should you use each one? Are there guidelines to follow?

Are your form results hard to read because of unclear column headers? Do you know you can make custom labels? For example, a common item for many forms is an agreement item that the visitor must check before proceeding. These include registration forms with a Terms & Conditions agreement or order forms with an acknowledgement of the return policy.
The display of these items in results and reports can be problematic. If you add a descriptive question then it looks repetitive, but if you choose to use a blank question then your item is recorded with a simple number. We solve that problem by offering Custom Labels settings that let you create more useful forms and reports.

WordPress is more popular than ever due to its combination of simplicity and powerful customization features. Users of all kinds—from newbies to power users, bloggers to big-time organizations—can take advantage of WordPress’ smart tools to quickly make a brand new professional website.
One of the most popular WordPress features is the ability to add a plug-in to perform a non-built-in function, such as collecting form data or sending an email. Unfortunately, plug-ins come with risks like difficulty installing or configuring, not working with other plug-ins or WordPress updates, or having to constantly monitor and update. Luckily, Formsite forms are easy to embed into your WordPress site and have none of the drawbacks that plug-ins have.
