    Wordpress plugin

    Asked by PaulRees on April 03, 2013 at 07:54 AM

    Hi I am using a wordpress theme that only allows me to use plugins instead of dropping forms directly onto the page using html.

    I have got the Jotform plugin, activated and allocated to the first footer area, however I cannot work out how to embed an appropraite jot  form into the widget so that it appears on the site.


    Can you help please?


    Many thanks,

    In your text widget section, insert the form shortcode [jotform id=formID]

    To get your form id, click the preview and copy the numbers in your browser address bar.

    You can also use either the IFRAME or Script embed method in adding form to your WordPress website.
