    Making forms Responsive?

    Asked by thenbman on November 07, 2014 at 02:17 PM

    Hi there,

    I've been trying to enter the form competition for a bit of fun, however as I usually do when using jotform, I run into problems as regards using the tools to make them responsive.

    Jotform works perfectly fine on desktop, but hopeless on mobile phones. Even though in preview it looks to work in practice it doesn't once you look on the devices (I use Sony Android).

    I looked at the questions section and it has been raised before this question and the answer was to use embed with an iframe, I've done that and still it doesn't make any difference, is there a way round this??


    Thank you,

    Hi Nigel,

    I checked your jotform http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43104944335350 on the website and I can see it not being responsive


    unlike when you just use the direct URL http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43104944335350 whick is responsive



    Can you also try this process

    1. Add the Mobile Responsive Widget into your jotform

    2. Re-embed the form to the website using the default embed script


    After doing this process, check the form on the website using your Android browser.

    Inform us if this did not make any difference or if issue persist.
