    Form not working

    Asked by cpk on May 17, 2012 at 04:47 AM

    Can't get a new form to work on this site http://www.millportholidayapartments.co.uk/contact.htm I have several JotFoms that work well but for some reason forms have stopped working on this site although I have not done any work on it. I have also tried another Jotform which I have working well on another site but it will not work on this site. 

    The form appears in the right position but the cursor will now insert text into the form.

    Help will be much appreciated.

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click iFrame

    Just let us know if this doesn't work so that we can further assist you.

    Instead of using:


    Can you please try using:


    You just need to remove the form on your current form URL and replace it with www.

    Tried this, the form appears as before but still unable to enter anything in the fields. I note that if I double click on the form it highlights the full frame - don't know if that is any hint to the problem

    The problem in this is because your positioning of the divs has something to do on covering some layers.  Please try to add "z-index: 1000;" to your css to the div layer where your iframe (jotform script) is:

    <div style="position: absolute; left: 152px; top: 215px; width: 354px; height: 328px; z-index: 1000;">
       <iframe allowtransparency="true" src="//www.jotformeu.com/form/21367226560350" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:457px; border:none;" scrolling="no">

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
