    Do you mean you would like to edit the form code generated by Jotform or do you want to just add an HTML section to the form?

    The first one is pretty hard to do. Since you'd want to re-edit the form that you have modified in the form builder. The second one is kind of possible using the "Text" Field on the form builder.

    Hi,

     

    This question comes originally from embedding paypal. Its only available in english, and I need it in a different language. The only way to do this is to change the HTML code in the form.

     

    Now this part is easy, since I just need to copy it from the "Embed" menu, however, it would be awesome if I could change the relevant section in the form itself. This might also enable to create very highly customised forms if someone is savvy enough.

     

    I am avare of the function to embed HTML into the text part. However embedding a form with a modified HTML within a form is not possible, as it will not work properly.

     

     

    Do you plan to implement this feature at some point?

    Hi,

    You can now add multiple language selections to your form: Create-Multilingual-Forms-for-a-Global-Audience. This feature allows you to add language to the form, translate the labels,sub labels and warnings messages.

    Another method would be to get your form source codes: How to Get Form Source Codes. Copy/paste the codes to any text editors you have. Modify the labels per your language option. Save it as an HTML file and upload it to your own server then embed it as an iframe. You can use the Jotform iFrame Settings. Just change the form URL to your HTML file. 

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the info welvin, I am aware of these functions, but they are not what I need.

    It would be cool if we would have a button in jotform to modify the forms HTML. So we could create and modify forms on our own, and then upload to jotform. Maybe its something you could add as a feature, as it seems very basic.

    We have custom PayPal integration, so unfortunately, you can not add html tags to control the PayPal options. This will not work even with the form source. In other words, the integration is hard coded on the server side.

    The good news here is that we do support the PayPal checkout language option, so that you can easily change the PayPal page language through the PayPal Payment Wizard.

    It would be cool if we would have a button in jotform to modify the forms HTML.

    It sounds good, but as explained Aytekin, it might be very hard to implement. We will think about it, but it is not likely that we can add that option in the near future.

    Thank you.
