The food submission form

< All Topics

To display the Food Submission Form, a user needs to create a new page from the Pages menu at the Admin Panel and then add the shortcode  [add_food]. A user can also add the shortcode in the Template File which is attached to the page created.


To create a new page, follow the below mentioned steps:

WP-admin >> Pages >> New Page


Add Food Form
Add a suitable Title to it and then paste the shortcode [add_food] inside the content area.

It is recommended for you to insert the shortcode into the ‘text’ view of the visual editor to ensure it gets formatted correctly.
