    I need to embed a form created on Jotform into a page on a WordPress website. I plan to use the Jotform WordPress plugin to embed the form on the page using the shortcode that the plugin registers.

    I need to prepopulate a field on the form. I know that it is possible to do using URL parameters [].

    1) Can this be done using the shortcode that the Jotform plugin registers? If yes, is there an article in your knowledge base explaining how to do so?

    2) Can a <select> field be prepopulated with a set number of values (i.e. <options>) and can one of the options be pre-selected?

    Thank you.
