    Enable Raw Code, HTML, Javascript in Support Forum

    Asked by bayviewboom on February 10, 2015 at 06:52 PM

    it's impossible to paste code into this forum. Grr.

    i tried PRE and CODE and PLAINTEXT and LISTING, and none seem to work. 

    i just spoke to the awesome friendly Jotform folks at the DevWeek Conference, and they're like, "yeah, that's a problem."

    i love jotform, but cmon, every other forum software let's you put code into a post!

    May I know what kind of codes you are pasting? Also what part of the comment box area? We could post part of codes like CSS and <script> tags here, HTML code should also work.

    Here's a sample on how I include sample codes in our post:


    $('.button').click(function() {

    action here




    You could also try designing your post here in the forum using HTML and add it in the post's source code, you can find it here:


    For long codes, it would be advisable to use http://pastebin.com/ if you would like to share long and complex codes, with this it would be easier to read and debug.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you

    Thanks for updating, it seems that this is related to this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/512919. And I see that you were able to add some script codes in your post in that thread? For now, we'll continue to help you work on your form, my colleagues and I are looking at the pop-up form to have it a set delayed time.

    Kind regards.
