CleverReach® WP [cleverreach] Shortcode

The CleverReach shortcode is a powerful tool used to handle forms in WordPress. It uses the ‘cleverreach_form_handler’ function to register and validate form entries. If no form is specified or found, it returns an empty string. However, if a form is identified, it retrieves the form’s HTML code, providing a flexible way to manage forms.

Shortcode: [cleverreach]


Here is a list of all possible cleverreach shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • form – Specifies the ID of the CleverReach form to display

Examples and Usage

Basic example – A simple usage of the shortcode to display a form based on its ID.

[cleverreach form=1 /]

Advanced examples – Showcasing more complex usage of the shortcode. Here, we’re using the shortcode to display a form by referencing both ID and title. The form will first try to load by ID, but if not found, it will try to load by title.

[cleverreach form=1 title="Sign Up Form" /]

Please note that the ‘title’ attribute in the advanced example is not supported in the given PHP code. This is just an illustrative example of how additional parameters can be used in shortcodes. The actual implementation may require additional coding to support such features.

PHP Function Code

In case you have difficulties debugging what causing issues with [cleverreach] shortcode, check below the related PHP functions code.

Shortcode line:

add_shortcode( 'cleverreach', array( $this, 'cleverreach_form_handler' ) );

			return '';

		$form_repository = RepositoryRegistry::getRepository( Form::getClassName() );
		$filter = new QueryFilter();
		$filter->where( 'formId', Operators::EQUALS, $attributes[ 'form' ] );
		/** @var Form $form */
		$form = $form_repository->selectOne( $filter );
		if ( ! $form ) {

		return Forms_Formatter::get_form_code( $form->getHtml() );
