E-mail embedded form - contains unwanted bullet points and right align.

  • Profile Image
    Asked on November 18, 2013 at 02:52 PM

    I am trying to imbed a form in an e-mail. I've gotten the e-mail to appear by following instructions here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/35502-Can-one-insert-a-jotform-into-an-email-message-e-g-gmail

     However, the e-mail has bullet points. Some other users had successfully solved it by using CSS, however I tried the injecting CSS method and a few manual tries, but no dice. My embedded e-mail still has bullet points and the field labels are right aligned. Any thoughts on how I could get this to work?



    My raw code is below. Form URL is here: http://form.jotform.co/form/33214227842853


    <script src="//cdn.jotfor.ms/static/jotform.js?3.1.993" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">


          $('input_4').hint('ex: myname@example.com');

          JotForm.description('input_4', 'Please insert your CFS e-mail address.');

    Hello, we apologize for this inconvenience.

    JotForm works heavily using Javascript. Unfortunately, no email provider or email client supports Javascript due to security reasons. This is why we do not recommend embedding your form inside an email notification as it breaks JotForm code or sometimes become unresponsive. To add this further, any Javascript code that is embedded in an email will usually be marked as spam by most email providers or will reject it.

    If you would like to continue, you may choose to add this inline CSS on each of the <li> tag that you see on your embed code.


    example everytime you see an <li tag

    <li class="form-line form-line-column" id="id_4">

    add the style on the <li like this:

    <li style="list-style:none;background-image:none;"  class="form-line form-line-column" id="id_4">


    Similarly, when you find an <ul add this inline CSS on your email notification


    example when you see this <ul tag

    <ul class="form-section">

    change it to:

    <ul style="list-style-type:none;padding:0px;margin:0px"  class="form-section">

    The bullets should now be cleared. Here is your embed code. I already inserted every inline CSS


    However, we can not guarantee that your form will behave properly 100% as there is no Javascript working when your recipients receive this.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach us. You could also open up a new thread for another inquiry. Thank you

    Whoops, I think I got someone else's embed code, but I will make the changes in my own code.
