    Using an HTML Code in a text box.

    Asked by liisa_sefton on May 03, 2017 at 10:14 AM

    Hi, I have pasted my html code into the text box in the properties area.  It's a newsletter subscription form.

    It shows up in the working area of my form, formatted correctly.  But when I click preview, or when I look at the published form, it shows up as a bunch of hmtl code.

    Thoughts?

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience, however, I checked your form and see that you have created a form within the Text (HTML) and I'm afraid this is not possible. For security purposes, there are only limited HTML tags allowed to be used within the form.

    I would suggest you try to have the newsletter form hosted on a separate website and show it to your form with the help of our Iframe Embed widget using its page URL.

    Thank you.
