WordPress :: Sociocs - Form
Form integration (e.g. Contact Us, Appointment Request, Pricing Inquiry form etc.) for WordPress.
When the end user submits the form, it is received in the Sociocs Inbox, form where, you can reply back.
There are different ways (with and without plugins) to create forms on WordPress, and have them submitted to an API. This guide is based on the well known form plugin
Contact Form 7 to create the form, and another plugin
Contact Form to Any API to submit it to Sociocs API.
Sign up or log in on app.sociocs.com.
Select "Form" in the "Connect a new channel" page. If you are an existing user, after logging in, click on "Channels" menu on the top, click on "+" button to go to the "Connect a new channel" page.
Enter "Form name", check "Key authorization", and click "Next". You don't need to add fill out any other information. (Even if you would like to add "reCAPTCHA" validation in your form, leave "reCAPTCHA v2" unchecked in Sociocs. You would have to use Contact Form 7's reCAPTCHA integration.)
On the next page, click "Done", which should take you to the Channels page.
Click on the "Form" channel you just added, and find API URL, and API KEY (value shown under "Key authorization").
