    What does embed code do exactly?

    Asked by mike771 on May 03, 2015 at 01:42 PM

    I asked this question in another way but believe I may have been unclear.  I want a link to my form on my site but don't actually want the form itself on my site. I am fairly certain that is how my web based forms were working on Adobe Forms Central ...  the form was on Adobe and the link opened the form there.  Assuming I'm correct, is that what I will get using the standard embed code?

    The standard embed code will have the form embedded to your web page exactly. 

    However, if you will be using the LightBox and Pop up from the Embed Form tool of the Form Builder, you will be able to have some cool effects for you form.

    You may also follow this guide: How-to-Create-a-Lightbox-Form

    A LightBox form looks like this. (Please see the image below)

    Above are two ways of embedding your form that will have your form not embedded to your web page exactly but instead a link that needs to be clicked first to show your forms.

    In addition to the explanation above, you may also, by the way, use the Form's URL.

    Then, you can use the Form's URL to create a link or a button that will redirect to your form.
