One of the most common questions relating to Entityforms is how to embed them on a node.  This short video walks you through the steps.

Modules you will need


Hi there, I'm currently building a Real Estate website using Drupal 7, and I need to embed a Form in every property listing, so my customers can ask for more information on this form, but I need to pass something to identify which property they are asking for.

Using Entity Form can I embed something like the node ID o in case of a Content Type some custom field?

I think this probably a common problem.

I actually just finished making a module to solve this.


Read the description on the project page and this will hopefully explain how to you how to use it.

It is a dev module it is in working condition.  I plan on making a video about it soon.

Hope this helps,


Hi Ted. Excellent module! Is your video for Entityreference Current up yet? I'm not too sure if I'm doing something wrong, but I've enabled "Entity reference current" for my content type, but I see no evidence of this in the form submission or the email that comes through. Is there something else I'm supposed to do? My scenario is Cars that belong to Dealerships. So in my Dealerships content type I have "field_dealership_reference" that refers to my entity form. The "Add Car" form shows fine on the Dealerships node, but I can't seem to get any of the Dealerships value. Would really appreciate your help in this regard. Many thanks!

If you post a detailed description the module issue queue I will take a look when I have time.

Thanks Ted. I'll do so

you have a typo in your url alias :) great explanation btw

Just wandering is it possible to make an entityform to a node? so it has the drupal default comment functions.

You can use as Entity Reference field on a content type that references and EntityForm Type.  That way you could have comments underneath it.

I have created an Entity form "Alumni Registration Form" which I have embedded into a book page called "Alumni Registration" Is there any way to hide the Entity form title?


Thank you very much for the clear instructions. The pace of the tutorial was perfect, at least for me.

I have run into this issue. There is an issue with Entity Reference that would allow this: https://www.drupal.org/node/2236527

Have you made the video for the entityreference_current module? I can't make heads or tails how to use it looking at the documentation and really need to prepopulate some of the fields.

Sorry I haven't had time to yet

I am looking for a solution for the following (drupal 8).
I have a node that contains an email field. I need a webform on the same page as the node (or in the node as field reference) that emails the form to the email field of that particular node.
Do you have a solutions for this?

Ted Bowman's picture

Sorry no, but there is now a version of Webform for Drupal 8. So I would try that.

Hi Ted,

I tried to use the EntityForms Preview Page while referenced in a panelized node but it throws an stack trace.
Should this work at all? Or does the Preview Page somhow doesn't know about its context?
