Divi Form Builder has two modules, the .FORM module and .EDIT POST module. Both modules have three tabs: Content, Design and Advanced. You will rarely use Advance. Most of your time will be spent in the Content and Design tabs.
The content tab has general settings and then settings that relate to each specific field. Below you will find explanations of each setting. The design tab has the same layout as any other Divi module.
1.) Main Options.
- Form Title: Give your form a name.

- Form Type: Select the type of form. There are basically two types of forms. Create forms and input forms. Create forms are forms that users can fill out to create a page, post or custom post type on your website. The input forms, such as contact and login, only allow users to send information to you and/or your database to communicate or log in.
