    Load my test page and you will see the hidden button display for a brief moment.

    I presume it is just a loading lag.

    Hello William,

    Apart from the loading issue that you have mentioned, your form also does not display in Firefox at all. I think the latter has something to do with the conditions in your form.

    But anyway, these issues can be overcome by using iFrame embed codes instead of the default codes.

    To get your form's iframe codes:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click iFrame

    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen

    We would love to hear how this solution works for you, so please update us soon. Feel free to ask around the forum if you have other queries or concerns.

    Thank you for using Jotform.

    Thanks! Got it working:


    2 related questions:

    1. Is there a way to edit the text on the orange button ("Upload a file")? I guess I' saying "it would be great if you had some other buttons images ("Browse") I could use?"

    2. To be clear: the 100MB limit on the free plan a bandwith limit (rather than a storage one), right? Since with my form the uploaded files go to Dropbox, I presume the limit would be open otherwise.

    1.  Sorry but there is currently no way to change the text on the button. That text is hardcoded onto the form itself and cannot be modified. I believe this has been added to our development team's todo list. I am not privy to their schedules and priorities though, therefore I don't have any idea about the status of this request.

    2.  The 100MB limit for free accounts is a limit to the storage space and not the bandwidth. Files uploaded with your forms get stored in our server even if the form is integrated to Dropbox.

    Your account should never reach any of your limits, or else your forms will be disabled for the rest of the month. Once your forms are disabled, deleting submissions or files will not re-enable them. They will only be re-enabled when your counters reset on the following month or if you upgrade your account to Premium or Professional.

    A good practice to keep, to prevent reaching the 100MB storage limit, is to regularly delete submissions with large files.

    Hope you find this information useful. Thanks!

    Hi  wvazquez

    With respect to my colleague Neil, there is actually a way to change the text on that button. Please see this thread for details. I am yet to test the method myself but as you will see, the user reports that it works "just fine".
