    I checked your form and seems to be receiving the submissions normally.

    Could you provide with a detailed description of the issue and the URL of the website where it is embedded so that we would be able to help you further.

    We'll wait for your response. Thank you for using JotForm.

    Its not the submission, in my text window on wordpress where I am trying to put the form. When I click on the symbol and my forms come up, I cannot select my form to use.

    I understand that you are experiencing issues when selecting the form from the plugin. Could you try embedding the form using normal embed method i.e., through html code. 

    Also, I request you to clear the browser's cache using the following guide and then try selecting the form.


    The issue should be resolved now. If the issue still persists, please get back to us. We'll look into this issue further.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    This could be a problem with the newer version of wordpress, mine just got updated to 3.9.2. It seems like when you click on the jotform icon it's opening another lightbox browser then you need to close and open to choose the forms. The form will appear after closing and reopening, but you can't select it. I have submitted a ticket to our 2nd level to rectify this issue.

    Here's how it looks on my end.

    I am having the problem as well.  I can click the select button but it does not input the code.  When is the plug in going to be updated to work with the newest version of Wordpress.  I really love this plug in and use it a lot and need it to work.
