How to integrate WP Social Ninja with Fluent Forms
Integrating WP Social Ninja with your WordPress forms is really easy. Just go to your Fluent Forms dashboard and follow the 4 easy steps mentioned below.
Step 1: Turn on WP Social Ninja integration module
To kick start the process, go to the Integration Module tab of Fluent Forms and scroll to the WP Social Ninja module. You can also use the search bar to get there.
Then toggle on the module to enable it.
Step 2: Create a form
Now, it’s time to create a WordPress form that can collect your precious reviews. To do that, head over to the click on the Add a New Form button on the All Forms tab. A popup will appear displaying all the available prebuild form templates. If you are using the free version, you will get over 60 unique templates. But an upgrade can extend that number to 75+.
We would like to show the whole procedure in detail, so we’ll go with a blank form and build our way through. After clicking on the Create a Blank Form button, you’ll be redirected to the form editor. Notice the selection of available form fields. We can select the ones we need.
Since our aim is to design a simple webform to collect user reviews, we’ll only need the following input fields.
- Name field – To collect the users’ identities.
- Email field – To collect users’ contact details.
- Simple text field – So users can give a title before jumping to detailed feedback.
- Textarea field – To display a detailed review.
- Ratings field – So users can rate the product/service.
We will then customize the input fields with appropriate element labels, mark the required fields, and hit the Save Form button.
Step 3: Create WP Social Ninja feed
Moving on, our next step is to create a WP Social Ninja feed on your WordPress form. Head to the Settings & Integrations of your form and go to Marketing & CRM Integrations from the left sidebar.
On the top-right corner of the tab, there’s an Add New Integrations button. Clicking on it will reveal a dropdown menu with all enabled integrations. Select WP Social Ninja Integration from there.
It’s now time to configure the feed. Name the feed, map the fields, enable conditional logic if needed, and hit the Create WP Social Ninja Feed. That’s it.
Step 4: Embed form
There’s only one last thing to do. You have enabled the integration module, created a review fetching form, created a WP Social Ninja feed. Now all that’s left to do is embed the form.
Copy the shortcode of your form and open the page you want to embed the form in. Simply paste the form shortcode. And Publish.
