Using WP Forms to add a password to the WordPress form.
WPForms is a drag and drop form builder for WordPress that lets you create any type of form you can imagine.
You can also add password protection to your WordPress forms using the form lock plugin that is included.
If you want to use WPForms, the first thing you should do is install and activate it. Then, it’s time to get serious about creating your form. The next step is to install the Form Locker plugin for WPForms after you have completed your form. Once you’ve logged into your WordPress admin area, go to the WPForms and Add-ons section.
You should look for the Form Locker plugin here. Simply click the “Install Addon” button to install and activate it.
Go to WPForms and then All Forms to see all of your forms. Make a choice about which form you’d like to save your password for. To begin editing a form, simply select its name from the drop-down menu.
Enter Settings and then Form Locker. For Form Locker, you’ll find options. Now select ” Enable password protection ” from the drop-down menu.
The password is now ready for entry.
Don’t forget to save the page after you’ve entered your new password by clicking the save button at the page’s top.
No longer do visitors see the form when they access a post or page with the aforementioned form.
The password box and message will vanish once the user has entered their password. They’ll be able to see the page’s content as well as the form itself.
Forms in widgetized areas, such as your sidebar, can also be password-protected using this technique.
Additionally, Form Lock has other options, such as restricting access to signed-in users, limiting the total number of passages, and allowing form submissions only on specific dates.
