    Your form might be conflicting with some of the other 3rd party scripts on your site.

    Can you please try re-embedding using the iframe embed option?

    Do let us know if it changes anything.

    Hi, thanks for your answer... great team.

    Ok, i did it, but using iframe, i have another problem. Tabs Form is working well, but it gives me a problem with page height, even changing the height value in the iframe code, and i don't know why the pagedoesn't automaticly resize with the full form height... 

    And with such little height, using the form become very difficult, so using iframe, in that conditions, give me more problems.... 

    Do you know if exits any solution to use iframe code without having height inconvenient? 


    Thanks a lot.

    That's a little downside when using iframe. It has predefined height and not dynamic, therefore the height retains even if the content length increases.

    If you want the form height to be dynamic on your page, then using script embed code is the only way around. But you have to deal the script conflict so the field validation and form tabs will work. You can refer to this article on how to deal jquery and prototype script conflict. http://learn.jquery.com/using-jquery-core/avoid-conflicts-other-libraries/

    By the way, have you also tried using Jotform WP Plugin? I'm not quite sure if this helps prevent the conflict but it's good to try. http://apps.jotform.com/app/wordpress_embed_form
