    You are right. The form embed plugin cannot be used on wordpress.com website. Please try embedding the form using [embed] tags in the HTML view of the page as mentioned below.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks for sharing the screenshot. I notice that there is a link in the web page above the form. Could you let us know if the link is displaying correctly in the page preview? I have checked the form embed on my test WordPress.com website and the form is displaying without any issue. Could you try changing the website theme to a different theme to see if there is any conflict with it?

    Please get back to us if the issue still persists. We will be happy to assist.
