    I would like to use the Event Registration Form for an upcoming event in our location but there seems to be no documentation on how to update the HTML code to put in an alternate map

    Thanks. I have followed the instructions on Goolge Maps User Guide and
    pasted the Embed code into the form. Unfortunately when I preview it it
    doesn't show a map initially, just the text ""View Larger Map£, which
    when I click shows the main map.
    Do I need to make other changes?

    This is the code I get when I copy from Google Maps but it's not the
    same code format that you have in the form example.
    marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
    src="https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=&daddr=37.032741,-7.822101&hl=en&geocode=&sll=37.031542,-7.820034&sspn=0.025249,0.035405&mra=mift&mrsp=1&sz=15&ie=UTF8&t=m&z=14&output=embed">

    Firstly, can I see how impressed I am with the speed of your response,
    it's excellent, thank you very much.
    Now, back to the issue. I copy your code here and paste it into the
    Form. Nothing is different, the initial small map is not shown. When I
    go into the html code that I have just pasted and saved, the iframe
    section is missing. All that is saved is the following


    target="_blank" href="https://www.google.cl/maps?t=m&q=37.032741,-7.822101&ie=UTF8&z=14&ll=37.034492,-7.823045&source=embed" rel="nofollow noopener ugc">View
    Larger Map

    I have tried to enter a very basic iframe tag into form via the html editior and it will not save it as an iframe.

     

    If I put text inbetween the iframe tags they are changed to <p> tags

    That looks perfect, thanks.
    I tried to clone it to look at the html code but it couldn't find the code.
    What have you done to correct it?

    Hello, I tried logging to your form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/32683591523963. But I see that it has since been deleted. If you need further assistance, do let us know. Thank you.

    The loss of the last form was my fault. I didn't realise that you had
    edited my form and I deleted mine thinking I would still have yours. It
    was only when I re-read your reply that I understood what had happened.
    When I fisrt tried to edit the html code I was clicking on the "Edit
    HTML" button on the html element it self just by the "properties" button
    and then clicking the hmtl button at the bottom of the form. next to the
    "cleanup" paint brush. Here I was not able to input an iframe section.
    I hadn't noticed the HTML edit button at the very top of the form until
    you mentioned it and using that it works fine.
    Thanks again for the help
