    Host JS and CSS files locally?

    Asked by adficient on November 14, 2012 at 05:14 PM

    I just started using JotForm and I noticed it loads 2 JS files and 2 CSS files from JotForm's servers.  My website speed monitoring tool is taking like 1-2 seconds to load those 4 files so I'm wondering if I can just host them all locally and change paths in the source code.  Will that work?  Anything special I'd have to do?

    I'd also be interested to know the answer to this.

    The form's full source files (zip) can be downloaded and subsequently hosted on your own servers by following the instructions on the link below:


    As long as the folder structure remains the same when the source is unzipped and uploaded, the files will be referenced correctly and the form should work as the JotForm-hosted version would.

    Feel free to ask if you have further questions.

    how about something like this?

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://form.jotformz.com/jsform/xxxxxxxx" data-ext-css="../css/custom-jotform.css"></script>

    Using data attribute.
