    Why my form does not show up on smartphones?

    Asked by greenoakstr on September 15, 2014 at 12:29 PM

    I created the form and embed it in my website. On my desktop computer it shows us up perfectly, but on smartphones it doesn't show up at all? Could you please assist me with that?

     

     

    P.S I used I-frame code

    Hi,

    I checked your site and your form does indeed not appear on mobile.  Usually I would suggest using the iFrame embed but as it seems you have already, I would suggest trying to simply add the mobile responsive widget:

    If that still does not work, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can find.

    Hi David, 

    I did as you said. But it still doesn't appear on my smartphone.

    Usually when you use the iFrame code, the scripts running on the page do not interfere with the contents of the frame.  From the looks of things a part of your page is causing the frame not to show up in mobile.  When I checked your code, you have code overwriting the normal mobile responsiveness of your JotForm:

    With several versions of mobile being fully disabled.  

    Your form itself other than the mobile version being altered, is working properly though.

    Thanks David, 

    But, I'm using online platform (1and1) for designing website and I can't manually change the code. Is there any option you can advise?

    Absolutely. 

    In the window where you are editing your website, you need to go to settings=>Set Password Protection and Visibility=> My website mobile. Then you just unclick checkbox where it says " Only display optimized content on smartphones and tablets When this option is activated, contents that are not optimized such as the HTML Widget and some apps will automatically be hidden on mobile devices."

    This is it

    Hi

     

    I am also experiencing the same problem even though I used i-frame coding. Both forms don't appear on mobile devices. Only the background pic appears. Please assist.
