On your listing, directory, and classifieds sites, you need to allow your visitors to submit content. For example, they may need to submit an advertisement, guest post, review, property listing or any other type of content.

In our example, we will allow tourist guides to submit a new Tour on our travel site.

To create a new form, go to Toolset -> Dashboard and click on the Create form button.

The basic form and its options are automatically generated and you are taken to the form editing page. There, you will find the following sections:

    1. Form settings: Define if the form will create new content or edit existing content. In our example, we select Add new content and make sure that the Post Type connected to the form is Tours. We can also define the status of each submitted post as published, pending review, etc.
