    Yes, As far as I know that should be possibly by placing the form within an iframe on any of your store pages depending on where you want to put it. Additonally I would like to point out that you can try using this plugin here http://mypresta.eu/en/art/know-how/tinymce-editor-full-options-all-html-tags.html with a workaround referred to by a user in this thread in case the iframe isn't working the way you want it to.

    872. 873. $message = $this->validateField($field, $value, $id_lang); 874. if ($message !== true) 875. { 876. if ($die) 877. throw new PrestaShopException($message); 878. return $error_return ? $message : false; 879. } 880. } 881. } 882.

    I do apologize about that and we appreciate you informing us about this. I've done some digging into your form and issue but I'm not exactly sure of the cause of the problem just yet because I am unable to replicate your Error that you mentioned right now but I will work on getting to the bottom of this for you. I would like to reassure you that this may take some time but I will be investigating this more to help figure out the cause of the problem and a feasible solution. At this point I feel very stongly that we will need to implement a guide on our platform so figuring this out more is necessary.

    What Host are you using your PrestaShop Software with? Or are you using your own Server for this? I looked in your source to see if I could figure that out but at the moment it appears that you are using the one included with PrestaShop aka " InMotion ". For testing purposes I may try that out and probably also test it on a standalone server. As soon as I can figure it out more I'll get back to you.

    Hey Nick, I appreciate the update about that. I just wanted to take a breif moment to give you an update on the status of whats going on with this and also I do apologize that I have not been able to get back to you about this just yet. It ended up taking me some time to work on this since I had to read into it all a lot more to better understand PrestaShop and using it along with setting it all up.

    I believe I've got everything set up and configured for the most part as of now. I tried it another way but realized that wasn't going to end up working using our server since I didn't have enough server privilidges on our end. I had also tried it via using my own computer as a test server but it was just taking way too long to try to set that all up though I may have to play around with that part more to check for third-party hosting errors being thrown just in case. To speed things up with finding a resolution I have also gone ahead and paid for a month of PrestaShop's Hosting in attempt to try to figure this out quicker for you.

    I've been playing around with it a little bit for awhile late last night and I've started on it some more as of early this morning as well to work on figuring this all out a lot more. So if you'll allow it and don't mind giving me a little bit more time on it that would be greatly appreciated. I will do everything I can to continue working on figuring this problem out to get to the bottom of the problem you mentioned asap. And I will try my hardest to get back to you by the end of today possibly a little longer then that at the most.

    Hello, Thank you for help.
    If you want them I can create an account as a site administrator Nick Technology.
    Must do the recording on my website: http://www.nicktechnology.com/it/
    And active as an administrator.
    So we can take the test together.

    thanks again

    Good Morning from my side of the world and I just wanted to take a breif moment to thank you for the patience you've given with me with this as well as the offer for the account on your end. I have good news though as of mid yesterday which is that I believe I've figured out the cause of the problem so lets go ahead and try to get this resolved for you. 

     Below I've put together a quick guide but if you get confused or if a video would be easier let me know. I'm also going to turn this into a more detailed guide with a video for our Guide Section. Let me know how it goes or if you end up needing more help with it and we'll play around with it more to get you squared away if it comes down to it but I think this should work.

    Here's what I would suggest to try to fix this for you.

    (1) First " ENABLE " iFrames so that they are allowed on your forms. By default they are turned off so this causes unexpected problems and is the reason why an iframe for your form didn't work originally. To turn it on simple go back into your PrestaShop Administration Panel > Preferences > General and look for the 4th setting down the list labeled " Allow iFrames on Html Fields ". Change it to " YES " and save your setting for it.

    (2) Now, Grab the iFrame of your Form again but this time you're gonna need to modify it and just REMOVE ONLY THE SCRIPT PART and KEEP THE IFRAME. You're iframe code should now look something like this in example:

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.us/form/40705110104131" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:633px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    (3) Next, Go back into your PrestaShop Admin Panel and this time " Create a New CMS Page " and put it into the Html Field of your Text Editor on the Page. Or if you want you can try placing it where you had it before if it was elsewhere but if not then it's gonna have to be there most likely to get it to work on your form then save it and preview the page and you're done!

    Final Result:
