    1. Is Embed Form less safe than Source Code option?

    It might be easier for my designer to adjust the css using the embed form, but I don not want to compromise security.



    2.Also there is an option of Embed Form -> Source -> Secure Form. What is the main difference of having it checked against unchecked?



    3. Why is Embed different from Source? No personal CSS styles have been applied.

    Embed (secure) -

    Source -




    4. It seems that my website will rely a lot on the uptime of jotform. Can I download the javascript files directly to my server to host it? I will from time to time just do updates. Do you have a link where I can grab the .js, .css, other files instead of going through it one by one?



    5. I have a developer that will work on my form / site. My preference is that they have their own jotform account and I will share my form with them to edit. Can you give me the steps/link to achieve this?

    You've asked many questions and I will gladly answer your first here. As for the rest they are unrelated and we prefer that you please ask only one question per thread.

    You've asked if the Embedded Form vs the Full Source Code of the Form is unsafe. Both are actually very safe. However, if you wanted to make them more safe and secure you would need to enable SSL but please note this would count towards SSL Submissions.

    The CSS you can restyle in the Full Source code but it isn't possible in the Embed Code because those are limited scripts with everything hosted on jotform. The Source is more intended for heavy customizations outside of JotForm.


    You can find the answers to the rest of your questions via the "moved thread links" above or below.
