How your Multi-Part will look on the Frontend? #
To add the User Registration Multi-Part form to any WordPress post and pages, you can take the help of our docs for displaying registration forms.
Your Multi-Part Form will look something like this:
Enable preview #
When filling the form with multiple parts, it might be confusing to remember the details that you have entered in the previous parts. Therefore, there is a feature to enable the preview of the previous part in the User Registration-Multipart add-on. This feature is available for all the parts except the first one since it doesn’t have any previous parts to it.
To enable this option, select the part where you would like to show the preview(except the first part). On the left-hand side, you will find the ‘Page Options‘. Here, scroll down to find the ‘Enable Preview’ option. Select ‘Yes’.
Preview Message: You can write a custom HTML message on this option that will be displayed on the part where you have enabled the preview.
Once you have set the preview message, you can now choose one of the three layouts available.
The three layouts that are available are:
Basic Layout #
Table Layout #
Column Layout #
Note: If you haven't enabled the preview in any of the middle parts and enabled it on the last part, the preview on the last part will show all the data of the previous parts.
