    You can change the iframe's width from 100% to 180px, and then you can paste this code in your website:

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.co/form/31706318528859?wmode=transparent" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:457px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    <script type="text/javascript">window.handleIFrameMessage = function(e) {var args = e.data.split(":");var iframe = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");if (!iframe)return;switch (args[0]) {case "scrollIntoView":iframe.scrollIntoView();break;case "setHeight":iframe.style.height = args[1] + "px";break;}};if (window.addEventListener) {window.addEventListener("message", handleIFrameMessage, false);} else if (window.attachEvent) {window.attachEvent("onmessage", handleIFrameMessage);}</script>

    Let us know if the problem persists.

    The overlap go worse with that code. The overlap is not in the width but in the height.

    I apologize. I pasted the entire code with js. It is responsive but it still overlaps the other divs.

    Try it with source code embeddig, http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-Download-a-Source-Code-of-your-Form, this might help. If not, try the following.


    You can also adjust your media query CSS to prevent the form from overlapping the other div elements.

    I believed this needs to be adjusted on this stylesheet.


    Specifically on this line. You may increase the initial bottom padding for the sidebar where the form is placed.

    .responsive .art-responsive-embed {

       position: relative;

       padding-bottom: 56.25%;

       /* 16:9 */

    height: 0;


    Hope this helps!
