    word press plug in

    Asked by olpevents on July 15, 2015 at 10:30 AM

    I have a previous version of the WP plug in on my site. I was attempting to activate the new one I downloaded, and got this error:

     Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class JotFormWPEmbed in /var/www/vhosts/businesswomanpa.com/httpdocs/bw2014wp/wp-content/plugins/embed-form/jotform-wp-embed.php on line 12

    Can you help? Can I not have both versions? what will happen to the one I have installed with the older version if I delete and active new one?


    The one i have activated currently is: Version 1.52 | By Trevor Montgomery | View details

    The newest one I found, that I am trying to activate and get error is: Version 1.2 | By Ertugrul Emre Ertekin | View details

    No you cannot have both versions because it will trigger the very same class declaration error.


    Why do you need both versions on your form, maybe we can help you on another way?

    The form should remain even if you remove the plugin.  I would recommend updating to the new one.  You can also try the direct embed method, rather than using the plugin:


    The iFrame code occasionally needs to be used for that method, rather than the regular script embed that is shown in the guide:
