PhD in GSD – embed a Salsa form in a WordPress post or page
Not for the faint of heart – this post/video kicks off our advanced series of videos in online organizing. Dubbed the PhD in Getting Shit Done.
Today let’s look at the most complex thing you can do with the otherwise easy to use Salsa organizing platform – namely extracting form elements from the system so you can place them anywhere on the internet (like on your WordPress page) and gain total control over them in terms of style, design and integration into your site. In this example, Chris and I are working on a simple petition, but you can apply the same principles to a targeted action, signup form, or even an event registration. Be aware that donation pages or event forms that need to process a credit card offer some unique challenges (secure processing, etc) so don’t try THAT at home.
I’ll post another PhDiGSD soon that walks through styling the form elements with CSS to make everything look pretty.
