    Thanks, but that doesn't work- when I paste the html it displays a huge paragraph of stuff that appears to be code (but not the whole code). I think maybe there is CSS or some other code that my web host (1and1.com) doesn't allow?

    @shaunshaun

    Hi, can you please share to us the URL of the website where the form was used. We will check.

    I am not sure how you used the form's source code, but usually, it takes more than pasting the code to make it work. You have to create a website page, then add your form's code to make it work.

    Thanks.

    I have been pasting html in my web pages (using 1and1.com's website builder) for eight years, so I understand how to do it. Unfortunately I can't go Live with my page until I get the bugs worked out, so I can't point you to a url. If I go Live with the rest of the updated site maybe I can find an obscure page and post the problem there and let you know, perhaps tomorrow or Wednesday. Thanks.

    Thank you for updating us. 

    I am completely convinced that you know how to use the form's source code. =)

    We will await for your next update then, so we can assist you figure out what could be the issue why the embedded form source code would not work on your website page.

    Please keep us posted.

    Thanks.

    Okay, now it seems to be working... what I first did- I went to the webpage with the form on it, right-clicked Show Source, then Select All then Copy and Paste.

    That didn't seem to work. Yet when I did that and instead of Copy and Paste I highlighted all the text and used Control C and P, that seemed to work. Not sure why.

     

    Thanks!
