    When I embed my form on a Wordpress.com page, the Submit button works, but the Print Form button does not. It prints fine if I go directly to the form URL. Thanks.

    I was able to reproduce the problem in my test wordpress.com site and the form embedded in your website. Clicking the print button throws an error in the console log.

    It seems Wordpress.com is preventing the print button to call the browser print window.

    I have forwarded this to our developers. Once this is fixed, you will be informed here.

    Thank you for the quick answer. I later added a Clear Form (Reset) button, and it didn't appear to work on Wordpress either. Could you check that too?

    Edit: Email link near the top of the form also does not work when embedded in Wordpress. Thanks.

    We regret to say this, but it is currently impossible to have the print or clear button work on WordPress.com pages due to the sandbox restriction they impose on embedded elements.

    We are really sorry about this.
