    Strange black lines appearing

    Asked by Sue on June 30, 2011 at 02:31 AM

    I haven't used jotforms before (or indeed made a website before) but I have inserted a simple contact form into a site I just made using Xara.  On one page, where I originally placed the form and then removed it and on the page with the form I have short black lines appearing at the sides.  Can I get rid of these?  Sorry if this is an old question I don't know my way around here yet.

    Not an answer just a further observation.  The site works OK with the black lines in place.  When I went back to Xara just now and selected and deleted the black lines, strange things started to happen to my navigation bar with odd words and pictures appearing instead of buttons.  So I still have the black lines.

    Ok Now I have just put the lines behind everything and the contact form works OK.  However, when I did that on the contact page which is the one with addresses everything went black.  So I have the lines on that page still.

    One possible solution might be to use IFrame code. Here is how you can get it. Open your form on the Form Builder:
    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Embed Form"
    3. Click on "iFrame".

    Thank you for your help.  I got rid on them on the page where I had inserted and then deleted the form and have hidden them on the other page, but I will remember your tip for next time.  Thanks again.
