How to get new Jotform to appear on a new page on WordPress based website, rather than embed

    I am trying to maintain/tweak a website created on Wordpress.  It is wonderfully easy to create new forms using JotForm, but this time I am having great difficulty getting the transition from my website to my new Jotform to work correctly.  My goal is for the user to be on one of the pages of my website, see the hilighted word "Register", click on that word and be brought to a new tab where my new Jotform is.  This is how it worked with a Jotform that I created/referenced in May 2013.

    This is my May 2013 code:
    Students <a target="_blank" href="" > must register</a>
    If I simply try to re-use this code by changing the 14 digit Jotform number.  It does still work for old form numbers).

    Jotforms Embed wizard tells me to cut-and-paste this code into my Wordpress HTML for my new form:
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    The problem is that this embeds the registration form right there on my webpage, whereas 1) I only want the Jotform to show up if they click the link  2) I would like it to show up on a new page and tab.

    Have you changed the interface since May 2013?  Is there a different concept besides "Embed" that I should be looking at?

    Thank you!

    It probably is because your account is now on a paid subscription.

    Please try using the direct form URL code like this instead.

    <a target="_blank" href="" > preregister</a>

    Inform us if issue remains.
