    I can get this to work fine when diretly accessing the jotform but not when the form is in an iFrame on my site. What am I doing wrong?

    Can you please share the URL of your webpage where you have embedded your form? What issues are you facing whne you embed your form with iFrame script>

    Please let us know and we will investigate further.

    The URL is The form works fine but I'm trying to set up the ability to prepopulate the fields from a link in our newsletero or an email so that someone can easily subscribe, unsubscribe, or change their info.

    The test link I used is to populate the email field but nothing happens.

    Hi Leo,

    Unfortunately, that is not possible. You can only prepopulate fields using the form link.

    Well that's a shame! Hopefully you can add that ability in the near future, it would be very handy!

    I think that pre-population should be fine with the standard Embed code, so you can try this method instead of the iFrame code. The downsite of the Embed code is script conflicts, sometimes other Javascript libraries conflict with the form code.

    Thank you.
