Form Name & Description

Form Name

Form Names are super important! They're the first impression people get of your form, they help you keep track of your forms in the Form Manager, and they determine the URL ending of the Title Link to your form—which you can use to share your form on the web.

Changing the Form Name will break any existing Title Links for your form that are already out in the world. If you anticipate needing to change your Form Name in the future, use the Permanent Link option instead.
Changing the Form Name

To change name of your form:

  1. Log in and go to Forms.
  2. Click Edit next to the form.
  3. Click the Form Settings tab.
  4. Enter a new name in the Form Name field.
  5. Click Save Form.
Hiding the Form Name

If you don't want your Form Name to show publicly, there are two ways to hide it:

If you're embedding your form with the Embed with Javascript or Embed on WordPress code snippets, there's a parameter in the embed code you can change to hide the Form Name—look in the embed code for the header parameter, and change show to hide.

Or, you can add custom CSS to a Theme—just include the following rule in your stylesheet to hide the Form Name of any form with that theme applied:

.wufoo .info{display:none}

Description

Form Descriptions are a block of text underneath the Form Name. They're useful for giving an introduction to your form.

To add a Description to your form:

  1. Log in and go to Forms.
  2. Click Edit next to your form.
  3. Click the Form Settings tab.
  4. Enter text into the Description field.
  5. Click Save Form.
