    Hi-

    First, I love this service, great idea!

    Two quick questions.

    I am having troubl embedding into wordpress.com.  I followed the directions, copied the link added it under the html tab.  However when I click update or publish within my wordpress page, the code dissapears.

    Secondly, I want to sign up for the monthly service (the $10 a month service), but the form is in chinese as I am currently living in hong kong.  Could you please send me a link to the english form so I can pay for membership services.

     

    Thanks!

    When I tried to embed the form in a WordPress.com page I created, it didn't work for me either. I suspected that this was due to WordPress.com not allowing script tags. This page confirmed my suspicion. The code provided by our Embed Form Wizard is intended for WordPress.org pages and this needs to be clearly stated. I'll submit a ticket requesting this.

    For the time being, you will either have to get a WordPress.org site or just put a link to your form on your page.

    Is there a work around for this problem yet? Other than getting a wordpress.org site that is.

    We don't have any workaround for this yet as they do not allow forms and script resource referencing in content.  Although you can create a custom form from one of their tools, you can find this just above the tool bar of their content editor:

    I have read some of these different post....I still do not understand a couple of things.

    1. I still do not know why the link disappears when I add it to my Wordpress site. I have Formiblable, but I like this better. I even went to embed, clicked on "Wordpress", copied & pasted it.....Still nothing...It always disappears.

    2. Having to go back and forth is a pain in the ......well, you know!

    PS...What can I do?

    @kpage,

    For clarification, did you create your website at wordpress.com? Note that, wordpress.com strictly forbids javascript embedding because they have stated on their post that javascripts can be used for malicious purposes. You can read the full story here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/#javascript

    But, if you're hosting your own wordpress site, you can visit this article to learn more about Adding JotForm to Wordpress. http://www.jotform.com/help/4-Adding-Forms-to-Wordpress

    I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us again if you have further questions. Thank you so much!
