WordPress publishing requires downloading and installing the 123ContactForm plugin for WordPress. Once it is installed, your forms can be published on WordPress in seconds.Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to install and use the 123ContactForm plugin for WordPress:

You can use the 123ContactForm plugin or embed codes, if you have a self-hosted wordpress.org blog/site.
There are two ways of using the WordPress online form plugin, as follows:
The first way is by going to your 123ContactForm account → My Forms → Get Code & Publish (in the menu of the form that you want to post on your blog). Choose the WordPress option in the menu on the left, copy the line of code that you find there and paste it in your blog post.
