    Hello Francis,

    thanks for the feedback.

    though i have already created the form

    i have also downloaded the source code and hosted it on my local pc.

    am trying to call this locally hosted form in the light-box pop up

    the light box displays but the form doesn't appear.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for patiently waiting.

    I would like to clarify further by asking you if you are using localhost at the same time using 3rd party publishing platforms? If so, what platform are you using? 


    Can you try using an iFrame instead? Here's how:

    1. Click PUBLISH at the top of your Form Builder.

    2. Go to the EMBED.

    3. Select the IFRAME embed option.

    4. Lastly, click the COPY CODE button to copy the codes.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly note that Jotform can not be hosted locally. After downloading the source code you can customize the form as per your requirement however, it will still be hosted on our servers.

    Should you have any questions then please let us know.
