Forms not displaying in themer templates

Hello, everyone :blush:! Lately, I’ve been using WS Forms extensively, employing either the shortcode via the Cwilcy Code component or the provided widget within WS Form installation. Strangely, I’ve encountered an issue where these forms refuse to render or display when added to a template in the backend, only appearing on the front end :confounded:. It’s been quite perplexing, as I’ve experimented with various form plugins, all resulting in the same challenge. This limitation makes it particularly tricky to style the forms within CWICLY Themer’s template system, as they remain invisible in that setting, showing up only on the front-end.

To cope, my workaround has been styling these forms on a separate page and then transferring the code to a template. However, it would be incredibly beneficial if I could directly style them within templates, streamlining the process. If there’s a way to achieve this, it would significantly enhance my workflow.

Hi @chaudes,

I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing trouble with this.

It seems that WS Forms might not be currently compatible with Full Site Editing, whether Cwicly is activated or not.

Given that this is beyond our control, I would recommend using a shortcode or reaching out directly to the WS Forms team for more information.
They would be in the best position to provide insights into this.

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi and thank you for your reply :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: which form builder would you recommend that integrates well with Cwicly and other FSE?
