    Asked on December 23, 2016 at 03:21 PM

    I am using the iFrame Widget, I have it loading a web form I created in Dreamweaver. It is to collect credit card information. I am doing this to avoid JotForm's policy of collecting credit card information through their service. This form is located on a local secure server I own. It is working fine. But I updated the credit card form (deleted some text) and it is not being updated within the widget. I made sure the http address is correct and have even deleted the widget completely and started over again. It always loads the very first version of the form I made a few weeks ago. If I take the exact same http address of the form and open it in a new browser window it works perfect, showing the latest version.

     

    Any ideas what is happening?

    I checked the form you have embedded within the Iframe Embed widget:

    And it is not being updated within the widget: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50256089207960 

    Your site:

    "If I take the exact same http address of the form and open it in a new browser window it works perfect, showing the latest version."

    What do you mean by taking the exact same http address? Are you referring your jotform's direct link(http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50256089207960), or the link to your own form(https://stillrivereditions.com/cc_form.html)?

    Its very interesting that the examples above are showing the latest version of https://stillrivereditions.com/cc_form.html

    So it must be my browser cache not reloading the latest version, does that make sense? Let me try a clear cache and see what happens.

    That worked, so I guess I need to clear the cache every time I make a change to a form just to be sure. Thanks.

    One other quick question, I want to add a small stroke line around the entire iFrame to make it stand out, I know it can be done with CSS but my research has made me more confused then anything.

    Code????

    Glad to know it worked. It is not necessary to clear cache every time, but it is not bad idea doing it from time to time: http://helpcenter.verticalresponse.com/articles/VR2/Browser-Hygiene-The-Importance-of-Clearing-Cache-and-Cookies
