Help with embedding source codeAsked by NRCsupport on February 21, 2014 at 04:12 PM
I'm trying to embed my form's source code on my web page. I use NetObjects Fusion as my site builder. As you don't provide a direct embedder for that, I need to do it manually. I don't understand what to embed where.
Do I need to put the CSS, the scripts and the html in different places?
If I download the version with seperate css, script and html, does it only contain css and scipts that I need - or are there others that I don't need?
Thank you for contacting us.
Your CSS and HTML form are loaded automatically when you use the embed code so no need to put the CSS seperately. You can follow this guide on how to embed and which embed code to use in your website.
And let us know if you have any problems making the form works in your site.
Sorry about my previous post that procedure is not for complete form source. If you are going to embed your form using a form source when you download the zip file that contains css,js and HTML and those files are needed to be hosted in your website.
If I download the version with seperate css, script and html, does it only contain css and scipts that I need. Yes CSS and scripts are in external file and needed when you host your form into your website to make the form work.
So how do I know where to insert the different bits?
That guide does not indicate when each of the two types of sourcecode is appropriate, and how to use them.
To embed your form source in your website you need to know your FTP credentials and that can be obtain through your web hosting service which I believe is 1an1.com.
Thanks. I'm still not clear if I need the individual files or if I can use the simpler single file download.
Once you download the full source code of your form, you will need all files for the appearance and functionality of your form.
