This tutorial shows you how to embed surveys and forms on your WordPress site, without using any plugins or extensions. To add online surveys to your WordPress site, all you need is a free account on SurveyLegend, and a passion for quality. First we will explain the advantages of using SurveyLegend, and then show you how to easily embed surveys and forms inside WordPress posts!
What are the advantages of using SurveyLegend on your WordPress site? Well, if you are a WordPress webmaster, you know that most of the problems happen when you update your WordPress core to a newer version. All of a sudden, your installed WordPress extensions stop working and mess everything up because they are not compatible with the new version of WordPress. In some cases the extensions are incompatible with one another and also can cause problems. In such conditions, it’s not usually so easy to get hold of the support team behind the buggy extensions, and there is no guarantee that new compatible versions of the form or survey extension get published soon. All in all, these things can make so much unnecessary headache. Therefore, many web designers try to avoid plugins as much as they can.
But if you embed a SurveyLegend questionnaire into your WordPress site, you will not have any of these issues. This is because your surveys or forms will not be directly stored on your site. You embed your created survey on your site, but indeed your survey is safely located on our servers. Therefore, it will never conflict with newer WordPress versions or any other app running on your site.
So, in short, the advantages are:
To embed surveys and forms in your site, you want to use an “IFrame”. An IFrame (Inline Frame) is an HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a web site or blog. This method gives you control over the height and width in the actual embed code. It is the most reliable method for displaying surveys and questionnaires on your web site.
We offer a simple way to embed surveys and forms into your web pages. It is as easy as “copying and pasting a little piece of code into your web page”. Learn how in this article.
After you have read the article linked to above, take the iframe code, and use it in the following steps to embed it on any WordPress page:
Tada…! It’s done! Now if you go to your frontend, you will see your online survey. Your site viewers can now participate in your survey, and you will be able to see real-time results via your account at surveylegend.com!
