Add a "Join Our Network" Page

Next, in your WordPress Dashboard, go to Pages > Add New. This will bring you to the page editor with a blank new page.

For a title, we recommend calling this page "Join Our Network," "Carrier Registration," or something similar.

Next, click the Add Block button in the upper-left next to the WordPress icon. In the list of available blocks, scroll down until you find the group called Widgets, and select the Shortcode block.
