The Welcome block can also be added with the help of the block inserter. It can be accessed by pushing the plus-shaped button at the top of the form.

Here, it can be found by typing “Welcome” in the search bar.

There are the following patterns in the block:

  • Contact form;
  • Feedback;
  • Newsletter Signup Form;
  • Insert Post;
  • Register User;
  • Paypal donation;
  • Reset Password;
  • User Login;
  • Generate via AI.

These patterns are fully customizable, which means that the fields can be added, edited, and deleted freely within any selected preset.

NOTE

If there are some fields in the form already, whenever one clicks on the pattern to add it to the page, the “I want to replace/append form settings and blocks” message will be displayed. There, one of the options can be picked to either replace the form fields with new pattern fields or append new fields to already existing ones.

The form can also be set manually. To create a fully custom form, one should press the “Start from scratch” button.
