    Using the form source code what can be modified

    Asked by jozefk on July 13, 2017 at 06:42 AM

    Hello,

    I see you are allowing to embed your forms with source code, so I would like to ask what are the users (free plan) allowed to modify in the source code exactly?

    Also, would it be possible to use my own CSS instead of yours? In that way I would almost have something like endpoint. Because all I need is the PHP/JS part of the code. Basically the engine behind. The front end (HTML and CSS part) I can do by myself.

    Anything like that allowed with free plan?

    One thing which is not clear to me is the 1000 views limitation. Do you count how many times the page was loaded in the web browser? Is that per IP or regardless? When does the counting reset? 1st of each month or from the date when the person subscribed to your services? Also, what exactly happens when somebody hit the 1000 views?

    I think that's all I have to ask for now.

    Thank you!

    Jozsef

    Please refer also to our user guide: How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    You can modify anything you can on the source code even if you are just on FREE account. All features of the Form Builder is also the same for FREE account.

    Using the source code of the form you will be able to download separately the CSS and JS files. So you can host the form in your own website and alter the CSS and JS source separately as well.

    Let us know if you have further question about the source code embed of the form.

    The other question was about a different feature. We will attend to it on a separate thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/1198285
