Wordpress and the Salesforce Application

Many of our users use the Salesforce Application and Wordpress in conjunction and in this article, we'll review how you can get your form on your Wordpress website.


Note: This article is specific to Salesforce Application users. If you are using Formstack.com and want to publish your form on a Wordpress site, check out this article here. At this time, Formstack and the Salesforce Application are two separate applications with similar, yet different features.


Publishing Options

First, you'll want to Publish your form. From here, you'll want to click on the tab that says Embed Code. Copy this code as we will be pasting it into our Wordpress website.

My form won't show up on my Wordpress site! What's happening?


Wordpress and the Salesforce App work great together out of the box. However, there may be some Wordpress plugins enabled on your site that could be interfering with the Salesforce App. Here is a list of some of the Wordpress plugins known to cause issues with Formstack's Salesforce Application:


To get around these issues, we recommend one of the following two approaches:

  1. Disable the plugin on the page where your form will be placed. The way to do this varies from plugin to plugin; we recommend consulting the plugin documentation on how to do so.
  2.  Check the 'Use Iframe' option for your embed code. This will provide an embed code that will be isolated in a separate frame, preventing the conflict with your existing plugins.
