    Your soft ware is so brilliant - it revolutionised my approach to websites.  have you ever thought about desgning somthing to allow newbies to embed a 'forum' into a website?  or have you any suggestions?

    Hi chilton1199,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Currently, we don't have an embedding method for a forum. However, I've attached some illustrations below as a workaround. Hope this helps.

    First, create your forum form, something like a guestbook form. Make a “grid report” from it and copy the code. In your website, paste the iFrame code of both the form and the report. Or, you can create a free text HTML in your form and insert the code of your report instead.

    If you’d like to check how I did it, visit this form:

    To import a form into your account follow this guide:

    On "My Forms" page:  

    1. Click on "New Form"
    2. Select "Import Form"
    3. Select "From a web page"
    4. Enter the URL of the form *
    5. Click "Continue"

    If you need further assistance and clarifications, you are more than welcome to contact us again.
