Ninja forms 3 walk through step by step guide

I have decided to consolidate the two Ninja forms beginner tutorials that I have.

I will add some general tips here and a link to the walk through tutorial.

How to rename a Ninja Forms form.

Go to the Ninja Forms Dashboard. Click the form you want to rename.
(Next screen) Then click the Advanced tab.

The form should now be renamed.

How to delete a field

Go to a form. Hover over a field (when the field settings are not seen on the right side). Hover over the blue gear icon and notice the two additional icons show up. Click the trash can to delete the field.

Ninja Forms WordPress plugin. Contact Me - Form Fields. Hover over field and hover over icon and click trash can to delete field.

How to remove “Fields marked with an * are required”

See: https://ninjaforms.com/docs/hide-fields-marked-required-message/

In the Customizer or in the child theme style.css add the following.

.nf-form-fields-required {
     display: none;
}

It might take a few hard refreshes for it to show up without the text above the form. I was able to right away add the above CSS to Customize and see the adjustments show up.

How to style a Ninja Forms form.

To style a Ninja Forms one first needs to enable Developer Mode.

Ninja Forms WordPress plugin. Settings - > Advanced Settings. I checked the Disable Admin Notices and the Form Builder "Dev Mode".
