    Having trouble adding a link to my form.

    Asked by amynorman on June 11, 2012 at 04:33 PM

    I tried to add the url in the options box like you suggested, but it didn't work. I've also tried to paste the url inside the html field, and that didn't work either.

    It is possilbe using Power Tools > Free Text (HTML)

    Test form: http://form.jotform.me/form/21626771223450

    Simply click on the HTML button (see below) and a box will appear to where you enter the HTML codes.

    I'm clicking on free text (html), and this screen comes up, but for some reason, I'm not able to click on the "properties: click to edit this text." I mean where it says, "properties: link to an external site" on the picture you're showing me, mine says, "click to edit this text", but I can't click on it.

    Thanks.

    Simply click on the field and it should display the HTML button or simply right click the field and show properties.

    I'm finding the html properties, but the "insert link" button in the tool bar is inactive. Nothing happens when I click on it.
