Congrats! You've installed the plugin and configured it to integrate with Scout. Now you're ready to embed the form and start collecting new leads!

Embedding the form with a short code

Wordpress allows you to embed specific pieces of functionality with a feature called short codes.

When you installed the Scout for Wordpress plugin, it enabled a short code called [scout_form] .

You embed the form on ANY page you'd like, just by inserting the  [scout_form]  short code.


1. Sign in your Wordpress control panel

2. Click Pages > Add New from the navigation menu on the left side of the screen

3. Click the "Text" tab at the top of the editor (see step 1 on screenshot below)

4. Type [scout_form]  in the text editor (see step 2 on screenshot below)

5. Save your changes!
