    HTML5 custom form and linking to JotForm

    Asked by zeroemployees on October 06, 2014 at 11:28 AM

    Hi.

    Is it possible to link a custom form I created using HTML5 Input tags, to JotForm? Instead of using the themes that JotForm provides. 

    I have figured out how to customize the CSS for JotForm's but the amount of time that takes, I could have more easily created a custom form that is styled up to match each website and is more responsive. I would like to be able to just link each input field to JotForm and have Jotform handle the rest. 

    If you need more info from me please let me know. 

    Thanks.

    JotForm and thanks

    Hi,

    Using your own form for the front end and only using JotForm for the backend is unfortunately, not possible.  Since form ID's and names are linked to our database when they are created, it would not be possible to have these relationships set to that of your form.  However, you can get the full source code of your form and tailor your own CSS to the source code:
