Create and Edit a Webform

Create a Webform

  1. In the WebPublish authoring environment for your site, navigate to Content > Add Content and select "Webform"
  2. Fill in the Title field. Note: Webform fields can only be added after the webform has been saved.
  3. If you'd like to add a menu link to the form, in the menu settings tab, select "Provide a menu link". Use the Parent item drop-down to locate where in the menu you'd like the the link to appear
  4. Under "URL path settings", unless you'd like to create a custom URL, leave "Generate automatic URL alias" selected. An alias will be created based on the webform title
  5. Under "Publishing options", ensure that the Moderation state is set to Draft. 
  6. Click Save. The webform will be created and you will be taken to the "View draft" page.

Modify a Webform Title

  1. Navigate to your webform
  2. Click "Edit Draft" and modify the title as needed
  3. Click "Save"

Publish a Webform

Webforms follow the same revision processes and moderation states as publishing any other content type, such as a Basic Page or Slideshow. To publish your Webform, navigate to the form in your authoring environment and follow the instructions provided in our Publish or Unpublish a Page tutorial.

Change the URL Alias

For more information about URL Aliases and how to change them, you can follow our tutorial on managing URL aliases. While this tutorial focuses on changing aliases for Basic Pages, the same instructions also apply to Webforms.
