    I would just like to confirm, are you using Google Sites in running your website? You can check this guide that we have, Which Form Embed Code To Use, it might help you on what embed code to use. Can you please try re-embedding the code again? Also, if you can share a screenshot of how or where you embed your form that would help us a lot.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you.

    Yes, it's a Google Site. Your recommended embed method for Google Sites isn't working. Perhaps the XML gadget is bugged.

    Hi @kirksvillewebdesign

    I see that you are posting on other people's posts in regards to this issue causing unnecessary confusion and giving link to a site where the jotform is shown.

    Please stop doing this in order for us to be able to help you if you need any assistance, but more importantly people that had opened their threads and might not get assistance as you have posted a link to a website where the jotforms are showing properly.


    We have notified our developers of your issue and they will be checking your thread and all other threads opened on this issue and update you as soon as the issue is resolved.

    Best Regards,

    I am experiencing the same problem that they are. Therefore it is relevant. In the meantime, I have installed an iframe gadget on my site so that I can still do business.

    Sorry for the confusion, just trying to make ends meet here while I await the bug fix.

    Thanks for your prompt response to the issue, most appreciated.

    Hi @kirksvillewebdesign,

    I understand that it is closely connected, but as:

    1. it can cause confusion and
    2. seem that someone is no longer experiencing the issue described when they have opened a thread as well as
    3. allow us to see how many people are affected by this, while in the same time
    4. avoid thread hijacking.

    For these reasons I would suggest opening a new thread.

    That way we will raise the issue to our developers related to your own website and jotforms as well and allow our developers to check if your website is still experiencing the issue or not.

    To open a new thread please go here: http://www.jotform.com/contact/

    Thank you for your understanding towards the thread owners and us.

    Best Regards,
