    Can I write my own forms and import them for hosting and collection on JotForm?

    Asked by BEARssage on October 27, 2011 at 03:51 AM

    I like to write my own form HTML code for an online game I host.  I'm looking for some way to heavily tweak each form and still have it work.  From what I can tell, it seems I can create the form on your WYSIWYG site, then export the HTML code and tweak it, but what I really want to do is creat the form *on my own* and use your service to host it.  Is there a way to do that?  Or do ALL forms need to be created on the website?

    I think that might work:

    1. Create your form on a separate page

    2. Use Import Form feature to create a clone of the form on JotForm

    3. Change the field names on the original form so that they are same as the jotform form, copy the small spam bot check javascript code and make it submit to jotform.com. 

    Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.
