    Joomla 3 error not authorized to view resource

    Asked by Ross on October 06, 2013 at 08:19 AM

    I followed the steps above and everything went smoothly, but when I went to display the page I got an error "you are not authorized to view this resource". Not sure if this is at the joomla end or the jotforms end

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Embed JotForm to Joomla 3

    You are correct. It appears I accidentally hit registered. I no longer have an error - just a page with no form. On to the next issue. Thanks
