    Input of another form into Free Text

    Asked by tomchen on June 18, 2012 at 11:33 PM

    I tried to insert a form into another by using the method in this link:



    However, I was unable to save the script for the embedded form into the Free Text HTML. I've done it before but somehow this time around, all I'm seeing is blank pages from the Free Text HTML.


    Is this method disabled or could it be some hardward problem on my side?

    If you are using script embed code it may not work, try using iframe when embedding your form.

    Also, FYI, please preview your form on the new tab and change "form" to "www" on your form URL, just in case your form doesn't show the update changes. Example:






    I would also suggest to paste your iframe form code on the HTML property box. Example:

    Let me know if this doesn't help. Thanks!

    Hi idarktech,


    I'm not sure what you mean by using "iframe". Do you mean use the source code from "iframe" in the Embed Form? This would be:


    <iframe allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.us/form/21091859240149" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:3737px; border:none;" scrolling="no">


    Also, thanks for the suggestion to use WWW. I was wondering why I was seeing some old stuff. Is it possible to see the updated/saved stuff?

    One more thing, if I change the url to WWW, there's a big spacing right above the line. I only wanted a small gap but somehow I'm seeing a big one.

    Why's that?

    i was able to do it with the iframe code. is this a better choice to do on facebook then using the "embed" code?


    i also figured out the spacing. turned out i had two free text html boxes there.

    Glad to hear you've figured it out.

    Since you've mentioned facebook, do you mean embedding your form to facebook? If so, we have a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/22-Adding-Form-to-Facebook

    Let me know if I have missed something. Thank you!
