    Why is the embed function not working?

    Asked by ShanghaiChessAcademy on December 31, 2015 at 01:18 AM
    Hi I have some jotforms embedded on my wordpress website. They have worked fine up until now using the embed code in a text box. However, now I'm trying to add a form to the homepage, and it's not embedding. The the old version that's still on another page of the website is non-secure http but is still working fine. The new embed code is a secure one using https I've tried to use both addresses but neither will embedAnother related point is that the wordpress plugin doesn't work. I have the Jotform button but when I press it nothing happens. The working form is viewable here: The new form link is: https://form.jotform.com/52489256335160 and is viewable on our homepage: http://www.shanghaichessacademy.comThe old form link is [embed]http://form.jotformeu.com/form/52432127354348[/embed] and can be viewed working on this page: http://www.shanghaichessacademy.com/registration/Please let me know any suggestions

    I'm using wordpress.com

    Have pasted the embed code in the text area, but it is only showing the link and not loading the form

    Have also tried using a iframe code, but that only shows half of the form

    Could you kindly check this other guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/324-A-Guide-To-Forms-For-WordPress-JotForm-Users. For Wordpress.com powered websites, you can follow the steps mentioned there.

    If it still does not work. Please try to use the iFrame embed code but please do make sure to adjust the height value on the iframe code.














    Make sure to adjust the height value to match the length of your form.

    Do let us know if the above suggestions helped.
