    I purged the wrong form but I had downloaded its source code. Can I create a new form using the code?

    You can partially clone the form If you have the full source code (html, js & css files) hosted and have an accessible URL, you can clone the form using its URL as you can find in this guide:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/42-how-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-url

    The point here is that it will clone the form fields only, it won't clone its setting, conditions or used widgets since the source form doesn't exist any more, at least you will be able to rebuild it over the fields that you'll have in this clone.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance

    Apparently, I have the same concern. But as for my case, I do not have permission to clone the form. Seems I had disallowed cloning. Is there a script I can comment out (or delete) to grant me this permission?
