    That depends on what you would like to add to the jotform using the iframe embed widget.

    You could add the link to some other jotform, or a link to some website, etc.

    Any valid link would be OK and would open up in the widget.

    Do let us know however if you have any issues setting it up.

    I just saw that there are quite a few threads that you have opened, so I would like to ask you to please continue through this one thread only and we will be happy to assist.

    If needed, do let us know and we would be happy to create a sample for you to see.

    These are the threads so far:




    Now looking at the last thread, I see that this might be related to the payment processing tutorial about using iframe to show another payment option on the same form.

    If so, then the URL to use is the URL of the jotform where the other payment processor can be seen in.

    I think that there might be a mixup with the jotforms while following the guide, so please do let us know what is the name of the jotform with this setup and what is the other jotform that you would like to include in the iframe and we would be happy to assist.

    Thank you.

    The "PARENT" form is Cleveland Coatings Society Membership. The two forms which include the Non-Rwenewable & Renewable options are One-Time Chargwe & Auto-Renewal.


    ... and THANK MYOU for your assistance.

    Hi Ron,

    OK, thank you for the info.

    Based on it, the URL of the parent form "Cleveland Coatings Society Membership" is: http://www.jotform.us/form/50506273924151

    URL for "One-Time Charge" is http://www.jotform.us/form/50544866955165

    and the URL for "Auto-Renewal" is http://www.jotform.us/form/50544498700154

    Now to show the One-Time Charge form in the Iframe Embed widget we just add its URL to the right field:

    You can change the height and width to match the right size you want, I used the most common sizes here just as an example.

    Now looking at the jotforms I see that you have added the iframe embed to the child forms and that they are calling the Auto-Renewal form from within itself.

    Now I presume that there was a mixup while following our guide and I would be happy to resolve the issue for you, but did not want to change anything before you agree to this.

    This is how it should be set:

    1. parent form "Cleveland Coatings Society Membership" gets 2 iframe embed widgets added to it.

    2. to first iframe embed widget we place the URL for the "One-Time Charge" jotform by adding this link: http://www.jotform.us/form/50544866955165 (as shown on image above) and

    3. in the second iframe embed widget we place the URL for the "Auto-Renewal" jotform http://www.jotform.us/form/50544498700154.

    Once that is done we set up each of the child forms (that were linked to using iframe widgets) and set conditions to show / hide one of them.

    Please feel free to ask if you are not sure about any step, or if you need us to jump in and we would be happy to do so Ron.

    Okay, I have the form working correctly, but when I insert into my site the embedded forms do not show up!
