2. Include the jQuery simple form plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="simpleform.min.js"></script>

3. Create a standard form that will be separated into several steps based on fieldset

<form class="testform" id="testform" method="post">
  <fieldset class="personal-data">
    <label for="name">Full Name: <span class="required">*</span></label>
    <input type="text" id="name" name="name" placeholder="John Smith" />
    <label for="email-address">Email: <span class="required">*</span></label>
    <input type="email" name="email" id="email" placeholder="[email protected]" />
    <label for="phone">Phone:</label>
    <input type="tel" name="phone" id="phone" placeholder="000-000-000" />
  <fieldset class="address-data-inputs">
    <label for="house-id">Building Number:</label>
    <input type="text" id="house-id" name="house-id" placeholder="1" />
    <label for="street">Street: <span class="required">*</span></label>
    <input type="text" id="street" name="street" placeholder="The Street" />
    <label for="town">Town:</label>
    <input type="text" id="town" name="town" placeholder="A Town"/>

  <fieldset class="message-details">
    <label for="comments">Comments:</label>
    <textarea name="comments" id="comments"></textarea>
  <div class="clear"></div>
