    It doesn't matter what instructions I follow for Joomla 1.7, it simply strips all the coding out of the articles. 

    Any suggestions?

    TinyMCE in Joomla 1.7 doesn't have the entry "4. Go to plugin parameters. Select "never" on "Code cleanup" on save option. Then save it." 

     

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Boogerd,

    If nothing works on your end then you may try installing JUMI Extension, we have a lot of users using this and so far all of them are happy with the result. Below is the guide on how to install Jumi. Please try it and tell us how it goes after that. Thank you so much for patienly waiting.

    1. Once you are logged in the Joomla Administration panel go to the Install/Unistall section.


    2. This will take you to the Extension manager, locate the downloaded jumi zip file then
    click on Upload file and Install.



    3. Once the plugin is successfully installed go to the module manager and enable it.



    4. Enable Jumi from the list of modules

    5. Open Jumi to add the JotForm code.

    6. Add the JotForm code and then click on 'Apply' and 'Save'

    The JotForm form will then be displayed on your Joomla site.

     

    If this still doesn't work, you may also try this extension: http://www.nonumber.nl/extensions/sourcerer.

    Please follow the instruction here when your tags got stripped out: http://www.nonumber.nl/extensions/sourcerer#syntax

    Please also try using an iFrame Code, if both extensions aren't working.

     

    Just update us here if everything isn't working, so we can further assist you. Thank you so much!

    Nothing I do works - using anything else.  Okay. 

    One way around it would be creating a custom copied html version of a page, and using dreamweaver or similar, entering the code into it and calling the form via a menu.  THis does work.

    I want to use the lightbox, so the question is..  how do we autofire the lightbox to open in the html page, or even , is there a linking method we can use to call a lightbox and fire it open?

    Hi Boogerd,

    Please check this lightbox code as an example, you can use an onclick command to call the lightbox form.

     

    <img src="http://www.idarktech.com/test/upload_button.png" onclick="document.getElementById('lightbox-13035601593').click()"></a>

    <script src="//www.jotform.com/min/g=feedback" type="text/javascript">

    new JotformFeedback({

    formId:'13035601593',

    base:'http://www.jotform.com/',

    windowTitle:'UPLOAD',

    background:'#FFA500',

    fontColor:'#FFFFFF',

    type:2,

    height:570,

    width:700

    }); 

    </script> 

    <input id="lightbox-13035601593" style="display:none" type="submit" value="lightbox"> 

     

    I have highlighted the codes that needs to be modified, the long string of numbers is your Form ID and the blue link is your menu image.  You can check here for the preview.

    Just inform us if you need further assistance with this. Thank you and have a great day!

    Using Jumi, when you place the script code in the 'Code Written' field, saving it deletes it.

    I installed something earlier today, and didn't realize there was a difference in a module and a plugin file.
    This file I downloaded for Jumi is a plugin file, while the instructions you are showing are for a module, correct? There is no 'Jumi' to edit in the Modules, rather, I can add a module to use Jumi..
    Does this make any sense?

    This is awesome.. but... I cannot use this within joomla 1.7.
    How can I get it to go 'onload', as I am utilizing an external html file to show the form when clicking to it from joomla in order to work... I want it to 'autofire' when that page loads... in order to work around the disappearing code within joomla..
    Maybe you guys should look into creating a plugin for Joomla?

    Hi Boogerd,

    What I can suggest for you right now is to embed your form code into a plain html file and have it called when a page is loaded by using onload command. You can use this onload code if you want:

    <body onload="javascript:window.open('http://www.example.com/example.htm','mywindow','width=450,height=600,top=10,left=300')">

    Just simply change the URL to your page URL or your form URL. Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you so much for your patience.

    Boogerd,

    Your code appears to be blank, can you please repost it here? You can also use www.pastebin.com and share us the link, if your code doesn't work here. Thanks.

    I got great news. it turns out that TinyMCe in Joomla is the culprit for why forms may not be working. The instructions at the following link worked for me: http://www.cmsmind.com/joomla-1-7-help-how-to-embed-google-forms-into-an-article/
