Learn how to add a custom <select> (dropdown) field to any USP Form.

Step 1: Use the following code for your Custom Field definition:

field#select|options#null:Option 1:Option 2:Option 3|option_default#Please Select..|option_select#null|label#Options

Step 2: Add the custom-field shortcode to your form, for example:

[usp_custom_field form="123" id="1"]

That’s all there is to it. Here is a screenshot of the select field we just built:
