    Problem with hidden Formular

    Asked by dieBildschirmzeitung on February 11, 2015 at 08:18 AM

    We have the problem, that sometimes the hidden formular can't get opened by a user.

    We can't ascertain a reasonable reason.

    You can see the problem at this page:



    we use joomla 2.5 and the browser is the mozilla firefox, but at each other browser we see the same problem.


    May you help us?

    OK, I see that it is embedded using js embed option. I would suggest to use the iframe embed option instead.

    This will protect the jotform from the code on your website and make it load properly.

    Do let us know how it goes.

    I took a look at your website and I see the issue.

    You have embedded the form several times.





    Only the second one is loaded through the iframe, but at one go I believe that I saw only 5-6 js embedded forms (it changed after refreshing the page, so I presume that you were testing things out).

    To make sure that there are no issues on the page, please embed all of them using the iframe embed code.
