    How do I put a jot form in an Craigslist Ad?

    Asked by agomez on August 19, 2013 at 02:17 PM

    I had it on my old craigslist ads and it would show on there like such Click here to see more homes and now it looks like this http://form.jotform.us/form/23027890482153">Click here to see more homes. I don't know what happened or changed I use the same code. Please help as it took me forever to figure this out the 1st time and it's been so long I can't remember how I did it. I am not computer or code savy. Thank you

    Just what Welvin said the only thing you can do is make a link. For your reference here is a list of what works in criagslist

    @agomez

    Did you already try using the code suggested by my colleague? It could be that the code got messed up. So,  make sure that the code is in this way:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://form.jotform.us/form/23027890482153" rel="nofollow">Click here to see more homes</a>

    Your form URL

    Hyperlink text

    The text that contains the hyperlink mus be between the <a> and </a> tags.

    Please let usknow if you need further assistance.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It works for me. Check this one: http://zamboanga.tl.craigslist.com.ph/cps/4149980011.html. You may have missed the steps and saving the ads? Please be sure to follow all the process given by craigslist.

    Thanks

    When I used that one you just sent this is how it shows:
    http://zamboanga.tl.craigslist.com.ph/cps/4149980011.html
    After I saved it this is what it does:
    Computer Services in Zamboanga del Norte (Zamboanga del Norte)Click here to Send Inquiry
    when I click it goes to:
    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/23399356560967?

    When I use this code:
    Click here to see more homes
    this is what it says after saving and publishing it:
    Click here to see more homes
    It is not clicable which is when the customer would be directed to the jotform.

    Hello Amy,

    Upon checking your webpage here : http://zamboanga.tl.craigslist.com.ph/cps/4149980011.html, I found it to be working just fine. "Click here to Send Inquiry" is clickable.

    Please do share the other craigslist URL where you are trying to add link to this form:  http://form.jotform.us/form/23027890482153

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    You will just need to paste the HTML codes into the Craigslist Ad editor, publish the add.

    NOTE: When you modify the ad, the hyperlink will change to text so please make sure to make everything final before to publish the ad.

    Check this video: 

     

    Thanks

    This video is from December whatever the issue is, is from a new craigslist issue. I had the analyst in our office look at it and he said to inform you of this and it is not a fix to whatever is going on now.

    I found an article that could help you to identify what is going wrong from your side as it  explain step by step a guide on how to make a text clickable so that you can redirect to your form: How to Make a Hyperlink in Your Craigslist Posts

    I hope it helps, however I will be looking for possible causes of your issue while adding your link and also will try to find any solution. 

    Will get back to you if I can find something that can help you.

    Thanks
