    Unable to preview and embed forms

    Asked by analogueteacher on August 30, 2013 at 09:09 AM


    For the past 2 days I have been unable to preview and embed my forms. Here are two examples that have been causeing problems formID=32395598254870 and formID=32234253590853. 

    Clicking on the Preview button works, but I cannot preview them in a new tab. Similarly, I cannot embed them on web pages.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I have checked your forms and I wasn't able to replicate the issue. I viewed thenm using the Open in a new tab option, kindly watch the videos of my tests:

    Form one formID=32395598254870: 

    From two formID=32234253590853: 

    That could be a browser's realted issue. Kindly try clearing your browser's caches and cookies.

    Now, could you please give us further information about the issue you are having when you try to embed your form to your webpage? Are you unable to get the code? 

    Please let us know this information so that we can ckeck if both issues are related or have different causes.

    This does not appear to be a caching issue. As you can see in this video, I’ve cleared my cache and the page still does not load. Similarly, I’m unable to test the embed and lightbox code. Interestingly, the preview page that I’m brought to has a different URL than the one in the video you sent me.



    As for embedding the forms, I’m not having a problem adding the code. It’s just that the embedded content never loads. The page tries to open the content but eventually it times out.

    Have you already tried using a different browser than the current one you are using? If not, please give it a try, for example Google Chrome instead of IE. Maybe that's a browser related issue.

    Now, about testing the codes, Embed,iFrame and LightBox code, I tested it and I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. Please check this video: 


    Please try changing browser and try using this links to access to your account test your form at this time: 





    If the issue still persists, let us know so that we can further investigate and find a solution to this issue.
