    How can I upload my custom JotForm source code on my website

    Asked by quintagyo on December 11, 2014 at 02:14 PM

    Hi,

    I want to have the calendar show up in Spanish on my website. I have already read the two postings:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/104772-Calendar-Field-Translate-Months-and-days-into-another-language

    and

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/190274

    so I am aware of the steps I need to do to change the labels in the ./js/calendarview.js file.

    My question is about uploading it to my webspace. I understand that it should be placed in the public_html directory, but according to the instructions, the entire project should be uploaded (I assume this means all of the files that are generated when I press "here" below the Source Code box). This seems to imply that the form will be downloaded on the user's computer directly from my server rather than from JotForms. Will I still receive notifiers from JotForms when someone submits the form and have all of the other functionalities that JotForm provides?

    My other question is: my website is bilingual, with the Spanish version in the main public_html directory, and the English version in a subfolder /en/. Is the calendar going to continue to show up in English for the forms that are on the English webpages? In other words, will the calendarview.js file be used instead, giving the English site users labels in Spanish?

    Any help is appreciate.

    This is correct.

    Since the form's full source code is now hosted locally on your server, most of the contents will now be coming from your website server.

    BUT it doesn't mean it is now disconnected to JotForm. All the functionality/features of the form should still be working (emails, submission data, redirect URL, even the language tool)

    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further question on this.

    Thanks.
