    Full Page Caching - iFrame Embed Or Download Your Script? 
    Asked on July 13, 2020 at 05:14 PM

    We are using full page caching on the CDN's edge with cloudflare, with remote hosted workers for the js, pages with your iframe embed load about 5x as slow as actually downloading and putting your code into the wordpress editor, SO, question I have is, your scripts do refer to your form still hosted remotely - so - by that logic - if my server is down, BUT, people are using the site from the edge, and fill in the form, since your code refers to remote-hosted scripts by you guys, the form should still submit right?

    As long as the form is loaded, user should be able to submit the form. Another option is to use the direct form URL in case the whole website is down.

    I was using the source code download as it loads way faster than your iFrame - so - am i wrong though that if the page is cached on the edge - and the user can still see it - that - since your scripts are all loading off of your cdn and cloudflare cdn as is referenced for the script source below, that people should still be able to fill the form?

    I haven't seen a site where Jotform form is embedded and they were loading their cached site via cloudflare, but I've seen a cached site from cloudflare that loads normally. I'm sure that you can still submit the form even if it's from loaded cached unless Jotform server is down.
