Form Builder

Forms allow website owners to collect information from visitors. Visitors enter this information into the form and submit it to the website owner. These submissions can either be sent to the website database or as an email.

There are many different styles of forms from simple ones embedded in a page to multi-step forms that change according to the information submitted by the user. You can even create animated forms to draw visitors' attention.

How to add a Form Builder widget

You need to create a new section, choose a grid layout and click adding a new element. By adding a new element, you will see a popup including all the widgets available.
