I am getting close to a formal release. This beta update adds support for using the public facing Custom Post Type posts directly. This means when you define a Google Form using the Custom Post Type interface and publish it, the permalink can be used to view the form. It can also be used as a menu item or link.
It is no longer necessary to add a short code to a separate page or post although it will still work. I am strongly encouraging users to move away from the original gform shortcode with a bazillion options to using the Custom Post Type. Going forward, new features will only be added to the Custom Post Type (e.g. columns only work with the Custom Post Type).Google Forms Beta (1003 downloads)
