Which Form Embed Code Should I Use?

Last Update: September 7, 2017

JotForm’s Publish wizard has many options. Which one is best for you? This simple guide will help you find the right solution for your needs.

To access the publish wizard:

Navigate or click the "Publish" tab. 

 

Step 1: Do you use one of the following platforms?

iWeb, Dreamweaver, Wordpress, Facebook, FrontPage, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, LiveJournal, Expression  Web Page, Google Sites, Xara, Yola, Webs.com, Memberkit, Drupal or Joomla.

If you use one of these hosts or editors, you should use the specific code provided for that platform. These are the tried and well-tested methods for those formats.

 

Step 2: The available embed code options you can use.

Under the "Embed" tab, you can see the available embed code that you can use. 

 

The default embed option is a simple one line JavaScript code. It is designed to work on any web page.

The JavaScript version dynamically loads the form in an iframe. This means the width and height of the form are automatically generated. You do not need to update the code on your website every time you change something in form builder. 

 

Step 3: Use your inner coding skills and get the full source code of the form.

If you need to edit the form code to fit your specific requirements, then you should use the full form source code. To learn more about the form's full source code, you can check this link.

 

Step 4: The full proof iFrame Embed Code.

If none of the other options work properly use the IFrame Embed Code

If you copy the iFrame code correctly, almost nothing can break the form on your page! Since the form is displayed inside an iFrame, it will not conflict with anything on your page.

    when I paste the code to the website I developed on Microsoft Publisher all that shows is the link. I can't get the form to show ???

  • aytekin

    mkelly922: To add a JotForm code to a Microsoft Publisher, click the "HTML Code Fragment" command on the "Insert" menu. That opens the "Edit HTML Code Fragment" dialog box, where you can type or paste the code.

    When I paste the code onto the website page the form doesn't show ===just the link
    I u'm using sitespinner pro
    which code should I use ?

  • vabymjm

    i have wordpress.com

  • JotFormSupport

    You will have to ask sitespinner if they support javascript code.
    You can try to put html code of your form.

    If not it means you will be able to use only basic features of your form. No power tools, no conditions etc...

  • berlibj

    To whomever is asking about SiteSpinner. I have used Jotforms with that application with not problem. Copy and paste the Iframe version of the Jotform source code into the HTML code insert of SiteSpinner. If you would like to see an example hit me back.

  • brunovannieu

    To embed a form in a Ning site, should I use the Facebook format? (I think Ning and Facebook are similar)

  • JotFormSupport

    Ask Ning for that. FBML is only for facebook. It shouldn't be facebook code but rather full html source code.

  • scottwill7625

    I created my site in some website builder, and built a form in Jotform to allow customers to upload documents to an email address at GoDaddy, my host. But all that gets uploaded is the file name, not the file itself. How do I fix this? Is there a file I need to give the website to make your Upload function work?

  • HPSteve

    I am very happy with my choice of embedded, popup, direct link. I connected the link to a button. Worked out great. I tested uploading files and this was the best option. It can be seen on the front page of historicalfamilies.com. File Upload

    Hi,
    I am trying to embed a form which includes a paypal payment. I am trying to emebd the form into an email created with benchmarkemail (http://www.benchmarkemail.com). The purpose is to send a reminder to clients whose membership has expired and I would like to embed the form directly into the email. I tried copying the source of the form into the html of the email and to use iframe. The form shows up ok in the body of the email (nicer with iframe) however when clicking submit from within the email it opens up a page (link is: http://submit.jotform.us/submit/30768659691168/) with the following error: "Form ID did not match. Form ID: Form Name: 30768659691168."
    Is there a way to do this?
    Thank you.

    Is there a way to set the height on multipage forms to adjust to the height of the form on that page? Looks pretty ugly when a page with a few field is displayed with a large scroll till the end of the page.

    I am trying to embed a form with a link to click to open on my godaddy website. I have done this in the past, but I am not remembering the correct way. I cannot get a link to embed. Please help!

  • kplummer

    I have tried to embed my forms in my layout in Net Objects. I don't know exactly where to paste the code. The form shows up, but it is not in the right place. It is too high and encroaches on my navigation bar. The iframe doesn't work for me because I get script errors.
    I'm just a lay-person who has taught myself to use Net Objects and I cannot get their forms handler to work for me. I love the way the jotforms look.

  • sarahpais

    Godaddy will not display the signature box. Everything else if fine but the signature box is missing. Do I need to try something else?

  • tmd0402

    I can't get any of the codes to work; anyone have any suggestions? I have tried everything including the iframe without success. Zenfolio's support says they aren't sure why it's not working. UGH

    I am using iframe for my videos still i am not sure how can i make it loading faster? It often break up and take long time to load....p.s. i uploaded only HD 720p and 1020p videos. Can it be the size of the video reason for that or maybe is my browser?

    I am trying to use embed codes for displaying images on my website but they are not responsive when enlarging the page and making it smaller.

    I've tried adjusting the width to 100% in the code but the height never adjusts correctly.
