    JotForm breaks my SmoothScroll jquery

    Asked by thetimmlers on May 01, 2013 at 12:05 AM


    I am trying to use JotForm along side a Smooth Scroll jquery script. Whenever the JotForm stuff is added to my page, the smooth scroll breaks.


    Here is the Smooth Scroll script:


    $(document).ready(function() {

      function filterPath(string) {

      return string





      var locationPath = filterPath(location.pathname);

      var scrollElem = scrollableElement('html', 'body');


      $('a[href*=#]').each(function() {

        var thisPath = filterPath(this.pathname) || locationPath;

        if (  locationPath == thisPath

        && (location.hostname == this.hostname || !this.hostname)

        && this.hash.replace(/#/,'') ) {

          var $target = $(this.hash), target = this.hash;

          if (target) {

            var targetOffset = $target.offset().top;

            $(this).click(function(event) {


              $(scrollElem).animate({scrollTop: targetOffset}, 400, function() {

                location.hash = target;







      function scrollableElement(els) {

        for (var i = 0, argLength = arguments.length; i <argLength; i++) {

          var el = arguments[i],

              $scrollElement = $(el);

          if ($scrollElement.scrollTop()> 0) {

            return el;

          } else {


            var isScrollable = $scrollElement.scrollTop()> 0;


            if (isScrollable) {

              return el;




        return [];




    Here is my JotForm Script:

    <script src="//cdn.jotfor.ms/static/jotform.js?3.1.174" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">


          JotForm.alterTexts({"alphabetic":"This field can only contain letters","alphanumeric":"This field can only contain letters and numbers.","confirmClearForm":"Are you sure you want to clear the form","confirmEmail":"E-mail does not match","email":"Enter a valid e-mail address","gradingScoreError":"Score total should only be less than or equal to","incompleteFields":"There are incomplete required fields. Please complete them.","inputCarretErrorA":"Input should not less than the minimum value:","inputCarretErrorB":"Input should not greater than the maximum value:","lessThan":"Your score should be less than or equal to","maxDigitsError":"The maximum digits allowed is","numeric":"This field can only contain numeric values","pleaseWait":"Please wait...","required":"This field is required.","requireEveryRow":"Every row is required.","requireOne":"At least one field required.","submissionLimit":"Sorry! Only one entry is allowed.<br>Multiple submissions are disabled for this form.","uploadExtensions":"You can only upload following files:","uploadFilesize":"File size cannot be bigger than:"});




    I'm not a pro in the slightest at creating javascript and jquery; could anybody help me out with this? Thanks!

    Can you share with us the webpage URL to where the form is embedded so we can check the whole codes and the whole error?

    I guess you are using the Source Code. I would suggest embedding your form using our iframe method: How to Get Form iFrame Codes - Embed the codes for the iframe tags only, from <iframe> to </iframe>. Do not include the script tags.

    Let us know for the results.
