    Does the embedded form shows the changes I make automatically?

    Asked by mrwiz on June 09, 2014 at 09:50 PM

    I added the HTML code on my web site for the form I created.  

    If I make any changes to my form does it updates automatically on my site or do I have to re-add the new hml code to it ?

    I am asking because I used to use a service that the form updated automatically with my site.

    Hello mrwiz,

    Please be noted that if you embed your form using it full source code, any changes you make to your form in JotForm editor will not be reflecting in your embedded form. You will have to download your form's source code and embed it again.

    If you use any other embed code apart from source code to embed your form in your web page, it will always display the updates you make to your form. You will not have to re-embed your form.

    Upon checking your web page where you have embedded your form, I found that you have used your form's source code. It will not display the changes you make to your form in JotForm editor. If you have not made any changes/added custom code to your form's source code, you may like to embed your form using any other embed code. The following guides should help you:



    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
