    I went around and around with that this afternoon too (if I'm understanding your request). I cloned a form, renamed it and in edit mode it looked fine. But when it was embedded the form Title was the title from the source form. It turned out that the "windowTitle" is in the actual "embed" code that gets pasted in the website (I'm using Lightbox embed). I have to edit that source after I paste it into my site for it to display correctly. I could not find anywhere else to edit that.

    ahhh. ok.  Odd that the code is not dynamic in that respect.  So it changed the header on the actual form correctly, and even built the folder in dropbox that receives my responses correctly, but the link is wrong. Ok, well thank you - I will address that in the am. Too tired to deal with it tonight LOL. THANK YOU.

    I used the term link inappropriately here. And I've fixed this by just creating a form from scratch instead of using a template. Thank you.

    Hi,

    You can also change the used template Title/Name using this guide

    -How-to-change-the-Title-Name-of-your-Form

    I understand that you have found your own workaround/solution for now. Perhaps you can do it on the next forms that you will use from the templates.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!

    My issue is that when I clone a form and rename it (either through the My Forms -> More -> Rename or at the top of the form in edit mode) it did not change the windowTitle in Embed code (I'm using Lightbox). It took me quite some time to find that option in customize and that I have to remember to change it there too when cloning or renaming a form.

    When you rename the form that will only change on the form itself if you've listed it there since this is updated within the form. However, the frame and script code it would not because that is outside the generated coding that you would normally embed so to fix that problem the easiest way is just to grab the new embed code again and update it.

     

    Example Form:  http://form.jotform.us/form/41765005557153

    Example Form Lightbox Code:

    <script src="//max.jotfor.ms/static/feedback2.js?3.2.2432" type="text/javascript">

    new JotformFeedback({

    formId:'41765005557153',

    base:'http://jotform.us/',

    windowTitle:'Embed Renamed Form Test',

    background:'#FFA500',

    fontColor:'#FFFFFF',

    type:false,

    height:500,

    width:700

    });

    </script>

    <a class="lightbox-41765005557153" style="cursor:pointer;color:blue;text-decoration:underline;">Embed Renamed Form Test</a>

     

    Result of Example Form:

     

    Updated Manual Code Example:

    <script src="//max.jotfor.ms/static/feedback2.js?3.2.2432" type="text/javascript">

    new JotformFeedback({

    formId:'41765005557153',

    base:'http://jotform.us/',

    windowTitle:'UPDATED EMBED RENAMED FORM TEST',

    background:'#FFA500',

    fontColor:'#FFFFFF',

    type:false,

    height:500,

    width:700

    });

    </script>

    <a class="lightbox-41765005557153" style="cursor:pointer;color:blue;text-decoration:underline;">UPDATED EMBED RENAMED FORM TEST</a>
