    The widget is installed. When I view source code of the web page where the form is embedded I can see the source code for the widget is there.

    <img src="//events.jotform.com/jsform/60145340352141/?ref=&amp;res=2560x1440&amp;eventID=1452899224939_60145340352141_QXA16ju&amp;loc=https%253A%252F%252Fwww.no-tillfarmer.com%252Fdryland-signup%253Futm_source%253DSL2016ALKI" style="display: none;">

    I'm using "?utm_source=SL2016ALKI" but the data isn't captured in the submission nor sent in notification.

    I also have installed the widget "Get Visitor Location" and it IS working as it should.

    I took a look at the page and I see that you have embedded the following form: https://form.jotform.com/form/60145340352141 by using js embed code.

    What I would suggest is to use the iframe embed code instead since it is very likely that there is some conflict that is causing some issues with the form functionality.

    You can get it as shown here: How to get the jotform iFrame Code

    Now I would also like to mention that recently Get Referrer widget got changed a bit and there are now 2 widgets that you can embed - each doing its own thing:

    Get Referrer

    Get Form Page URL

    Where the later is working as the first was working before. You do however seem to be after the first - Get Referrer widget, so after embedding the form with the code above, it should work for you right away.

    Do however let us know how it goes.

    Using the iFrame code worked as you suggested.
