    Dear Jotform Team,

    I have a question about integrating of contact forms.
    FYI: I create websites with Magix web designer. In this software you integrate the code from contact form code generator into the homepage with HTML placeholders. That means I'm not so good at programming. ;-)
    So, I have created a form and wanted to incorporate this as a lightbox. I integrate the Jotform link at a graphic.
    Unfortunately, the graphics disappears when uploading the website and the title of the contact form appears as a simple blue-lined hyperlink. Have you any idea how to get around this?

    Have a great day and thanks for your help in advance.

    With best regards
    Christian Walkows

    Hi Christian,

    The lightbox codes provided by the Embed Form Wizard has a text link in it which can be replace by anything that can be used as a link, such as an image.

    To use an image as the link for your lightbox form:

    1.  Look up the source code of the graphics that you want to use as a link. It should look like (but not exactly) this:

    <img src="//" alt="" />

    2.  Copy the whole code starting from <  to  />

    3.  Paste that code in your lightbox codes replacing, in this example, "Kontaktformular"


    so it becomes



    That should replace the blue text link with your image link.

    Let me know if you're having problems implementing this solution.
