    HELP! Integrating an old form into a new site: How do I do it?

    Asked by designsby on November 21, 2011 at 07:35 PM

    I am redesigning a site. My client's old site contains a form made through your service. I am fairly inexperienced with forms.

    I have the new site designed and the page waiting for the form data (on the page below) but fiddle as I might, can't integrate the two.

     

    The new page is viewable at: http://www.tailwaginn.com/website/dog-kennel-reservations.html

    There is a headline indicating where the form will go. My intension was to have the form stay as it it but with a white background, not the dark grey. It will need to sit inside the  " content_images  " section of the page, not hugging the left side of the page as on the old site.

    Do I need to start over? Can adjustments be made to the present form? Do I need to get log in information from the client?

    Thanks.

    Where is the old form embedded?

    You can clone the old form and make your changes, then re-embed to your new site.

    We just need to work out what this 'old' form is.

    Not sure what you mean by where is it embedded? Can you go to the page and look at the code?

    OK Got it.

    The form is here: http://form.jotform.com/form/2800526576

    You should be able to clone it, make the alterations and re-embed it to your own website. 

    Please be sure to change the email notifications on the form if the old address is not to be used again. That setting can found in Email Alerts -> Notification name -> Reply-to & Recipient Settings

     

    You can embed your editted form into your website in many, many different ways, some of the most straightforward are detailed in this User Guide post
