    There is no formatting when form is embedded with its source code.

    Asked by Nzia on November 12, 2015 at 12:07 AM

    Followed Welvin & Mert's instructions, but there was no formatting at all - the labels and fields were all in one column.

    I copied to code to a text editor which saved it as a html filed, which I then uploaded onto my website builder page to get the URL, got the URL and converted it online to iframe code. Pasted it into the html box and it didn't work.

    Are there any stages you can copy provide me with the code for for me to cut & paste.

    I presume you are referring to the source ode example provided in the previous thread, you can save it to a HTML file then upload this file to your site.

    You can use notepad++ text editor as it allows you to define the language so that when you save it will automatically append the relevant .html extension to it.

    Are you using an online text editor or a CMS to add the code? if so  you will need to paste the code as HTML code and not as text, kindly let us know what you are using so we can advise clearly.

    In that case there is a guide on godaddy on how to add HTML code to your page, not that you will have to publish the page so that you can preview the changes.

    You can read the guide on this link https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-html-code-to-page-12286

    Thanks for providing the page.

    I can see there's a huge mess with the form particularly on the matrix table. All the dropdown fields on the table appears to be broken. When I check its source code, they are all missing an option ending tag </option>

    Example: The arrow pointing down to the bottom indicates that you have to write an ending option </option> on each of the option code. You have to do the it on other dropdowns as well.

    If possible, I suggest to retake the form source code again, edit the dropdown codes and re-embed it on your page.

    Let us know should you need further help. Thanks!
