I am trying to create a form to display to users on a wordpress site. I have very limited programming knowledge. I have created he form with the plugin, exported the .xml file, installed WP import plugin, and imported my .xml file as directed.
I am not sure what to do next to view the form I created on my website.
This help guide is a bit too advanced for me: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/create-a-front-end-form/
Is there a step-by-step guide for newbies?
Either you can create using export to php code and use that code into page in your theme.
or just create custom field groups in the back-end itself.
You can get idea from here http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/create-a-front-end-form/, and also read more about acf_form($args).
Take a custom field id and pass it to acf_form() function.
Here is an example
$args = array('post_id' => 'new_listing',
'field_groups' => array('custom field group id'),
'submit_value' => __('Submit','your theme name'));
acf_form( $args );
