    When I copy and paste the full source code into dreamweaver it does not show the text or the forms in the design pane.  I need to format the text and buttons further.

    What if you do this:
    1. Put the full form source code into a file using a text editor such as Notepad,
    2. Rename the file to .html
    3. Open the file in DreamWeaver

    Does it show the form?

    Does not work. :( I don't get why it doesn't work though. It worked perfect before the switch.

    I got this responce from Jotform Support.

    "Use v2.jotform.com site instead! We are keeping that open!"

    I guess I won't be able to use the new site.

    Have you tried these instructions:


    1. On "Setup & Share" tab on the toolbar, click on "Share" button.
    2. Click "Advanced Options" button on the left corner.

    3. From the opened menu, click "HTML Editor" on the left

    4. From the opened accordion menu, click on Dreamveawer.

    5. Copy the code given in the code area

    6. Now open Dreamveawer,
    7. On DreamWeaver, open the page you want to edit.
    8. Click on the exact spot your would like to put your form.
    9. Click on "View" menu, then select "Code".
    10. Paste the code you copied to DreamWeaver
    11. Click on "View" menu, then select "Design".
    12. You should now see your form on the page.
    13. Save your page and upload to your web site.

    This isn't the FULL source code, so I can't change the format of the form on my pages with this new version. However, I can change the format using the full source code (available as an option) on the previous version of Jotform.

    The FULL source code on the new version isn't the same as in the old version. It displays all jumbled together in paragraph form and I can't change the properties of the form like before.  The new code is different - using "<li> instead of <td>, doesn't include a table like before.

    Then try the "Download Source Code" option. That's also available on the Advanced Options pages. It includes all CSS and JS files so you can edit anything on the form from CSS.

    I looked at it, but it doesn't contain a table or width defined area.

    Version2 came with it's own embedded handy table that made it real easy to align on the page. This version does not have one.

    When you download the code you get everything for that form. You can change the alignment or width from the CSS file. 

    If you are not familiar with CSS, my recommendation would be to load it on an HTML editor such as dreamweaver and change it there.

    If your last post is of any importance, please try posting again as it came out empty for some weird reasons. Thanks.
