    Will all of the features work with form changes done using the source code?

    Asked by kauseway on March 18, 2015 at 11:41 AM

    My understanding is if I take the source code to my jotform I can make it look anyway I want. I can customize the look of it on my site.

     

    My question is how do all the internal functions work on the form then or do they not work?

    1) I have html text fields that pop up based on other drop down fields that are selected.

    2) I have price calculation that change based on field selections

    We actually have a tool called our Form Designer which can help redesign and customize the way your form looks for your site through the use of injected css that restyles it.

    In most cases it is usually best to use one of our various embed methods depending on your website.

    However, there are cases such as yours it seems where you may want to do much more advanced things that our platform doesn't support so in those cases you can modify and embed the full form source code with your applied changes. Not only will it include your changes but yes it should also work with any of the existing features you've added to your form.

    Now if you've done something drastic to modify the source and features to the point that it would break their connection and functionality from our platform such as changing a js script that we use for requirements as an example. In those instances then it would be fairly likely to cause potential and unforeseen issues.
