How can I embed an interactive crossword (excel, pdf) onto my webpage?

    Asked on February 16, 2018 at 11:25 AM


    I've created a crossword puzzle and I'd love to display it on my website so that visitors can fill in the form online instead of printing out a copy of the puzzle. Is there a widget or app on JotForm that could help me do this? I tried embedding it through JotForm as a fill-in Adobe Form, but it didn't work. Would I be able to embed the Excel sheet?

    I'd greatly appreciate any advice you have to offer. (I can't include a copy of it because I haven't been able to save it as a jpg.)

    If I understood your question correctly, you want to add an Excel or PDF file in your form and then to embed a form to your web page. 

    You can embed a Google Spreadsheet file to a form with iFrame Embed widget.

    Inside of the Google Spreadsheet click on the File option and select 'Publish to web...'.


    Then select the "Embed" option, then select and copy the embed src URL only (all the content inside the quotation marks "").


    Finally, paste the embed src URL to iFrame Embed widget.


    You can add a PDF file to a form using PDF Embedder widget
