    Hi, please follow this guide in order to make it appear:

    1. While in our form builder. Click "Setup & Embed" tab on the toolbar, click on "Embed Form" button.

    2. From the Form Embed Wizard. Click on "Wordpress" option from the Other Platforms section:

    3. Copy the code provided.

    4. On a WordPress "Add New Page/Post" page, click on "HTML or Text" tab above post textarea. 

    5. Paste the form embed codes into the HTML/Text area.

    6. Don't forget to save your post/page. That's it. Click on Preview or View on your Wordpress dashboard to see your form. 


    Adding forms to Wordpress.com is not possible since Wordpress.com does not allow forms, JavaScript or iFrames. 

    Alternatively, you can also use our WordPress Embed Form Plugin: Embed Form Plugin for Wordpress. Check for the installation guide: Embed Form Plugin Installation.

    Hi, sorry I answered to quickly. Unfortunately, adding forms to WordPress.com is not possible since Wordpress.com doest not allow 3rd party forms, javascripts or iframes, because they have stated on their post that javascripts can be used for malicious purposes. You can read the full story here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/#javascript

    Furthermore, there is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and you cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Inserting hyperlink is allowed and then once the user or viewer hits the hyperlink it will be redirected to Jotform's URL or your form URL.

    You can create a New Post and paste the web form URL then highlight the URL to make it hyperlink.

    Get the form URL first:

    Then paste the form URL and create a hyperlink:
