Please help! ... Is it possible to transfer a wordpress form/pluggin to my website I have created in sublime text???


I am new to web design and even newer to Wordpress. I have designed a website in sublime text for my restaurant. I would like to have a "book table" form or pluggin on one of the pages. Is it possible to find an appropriate pluggin on Wordpress and then copy and paste this to my webpage ???

I have just locally installed wordpress to my mac!

Any help or a step by step guide would be much appreciated !!

If you want to use a plugin, go to the WP dashboard > Plugins. Then search for a Form plugin, such as Ninja forms (http://wordpress.org/plugins/ninja-forms/).

Then, once you create a form you can insert it into your page (WP dashboard > Pages) using the short code the form created.

Hi Jordan

Is it possible to copy and paste the code that the wp pluggin creates into my HTML page within my text editor sublime text???

Thanks mate

No this would not work. Also it is much easier use a plugin so that your form is manageable and easy to edit without having to go into the code.

If you're not using wordpress have a look at http://css-tricks.com/sending-nice-html-email-with-php/

ok so it is not possible to take a pluggin from word press and add it to my website which was not created using wordpress????

i cannot copy the source code of the plugging i have created in wordpress and add this in my website i have created using sublime text?

Thanks jordan!
