    How can I take the form from jotform and move it to my company?

    Asked by beenahemkar on December 21, 2015 at 12:04 PM

    Hi,

    I'd like to down all files related and linked with the form I have created and move the entire functionality to a different platform with no links to jotform. how can i do so.

    I picked the code displayed under Embed version for dreamweaver and then pasted the code into a local html file. the form works great, looks great but has refernces to the files located remotely. How can i take all that is realted to the form that i have created in entirity and make it to function solely through my company's form submission tools and email automation platform. This may involve editing links in jquesry and javascript. Please could you direct me as to how I could do so.

    The link to the form I'm refering to is:

    Please be noted that if any references to the JotForm in the code are removed, the functionality of the form will be effected and the form submissions cannot be received. Since, JotForm is a web-based service and the submissions of the form to be stored in JotForm servers, there will be some references to the form in the code. These references include some CSS and Javascript files that needs to display the form correctly.

    However, you may get the full source code of your JotForm so that you may edit it as per your requirement.

    Please refer to the guide below that can help you with getting teh full source code of your JotForm.

    Hope this information helps! Let us know if you are referring to something different. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you, but I did download the exact way, Publish>Embed>Source code>Download Source that generated a zip file. After I unzipped, the form barely looked or functioned like the way it did on the website. So, perhaps some files are missing?

    Hi,

     

    Did you embed the source code to your website? If so, can you provide us with the url so we can check it? Can you also provide us with some screenshots of the problem when viewing your form using the source code so we can further investigate the issue? Here's a guide on how you can add some screenshots to your post: How to add screenshots images to questions in support forum

     

    We will wait for your reply,
    Regards.

    b. Therefore, need all the source codes have a relative links rather than absolute.

    c. Make the style of the third radio button option of the text field same style as the other two.

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    To make your form submit to your own automation tool, you need to modify the source code you have downloaded. You can try to modify the source code and change the form action to your own form action.

     

    The files that we have provided when you download the full source code are the only files that are available for download. 

     

    You can just adjust/modify the downloaded source code as you need. Regarding on the design of the "Other" radio button option in your form it seems to be a common issue on JotForm. I will create a separate thread for you regarding this so we can escalate the issue to our development team. 

     

    You can check the thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/730986.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
    Regards.

    Thank you for your response.

    The issue is that when I download the source code, unzip the folder and then open the html in a browser, it firstly takes a good minute to launch, then the form looks completely different than its online version and doesn't function the way it functions with the copy source code.

    Please could you help.

    ideally I'd like all the css, js files hosted on the company email tool and not on jotform, so simply changing the get form action will be prt of the job. The reason to download the css and js files is to modify code to point to those files as relative links v/s jotform links. The downloaded code looks and functions with a fault so this is currently not a solution?

    Please note that the forms created in our form builder are designed and hosted in our servers. There are scripts, integrations, widgets and CSS stylings that will still be loaded in our end. And data are designed to be stored in our data centers. You can download the source code and upload it on your servers, but please note that the scripts, style sheets, resource files have absolute path in our servers, you can edit them as you like but we are unable to guarantee that it will work with your own setup.

    If the full source code is not working when you embedded it in your HTML file, then there are scripts and CSS files that are not being loaded. If there are other script libraries in the same HTML file, then that may be causing the conflict. 

     

    I cloned your form and embedded the full source code in a clean HTML website, you can see it here: https://shots.jotform.com/charlie/test_full_source_code.html. It works and looks good in my end.
