    Squarespace 'source code' versus iFrame'

    Asked by secureform on January 21, 2016 at 08:10 AM

    When I embed a jotform on my site using the I-frame code it works fine. However my localisation software doesn't translate the form. I then embed using source code. However then suddenly all my pictures get blocked in the whole page.


    - Can I inject code somewhere in Jotform so I can translate my form using localisation software?

    - Can you fix the embedding so when adding a form via source it doesn't block out pictures on a webpage?

    You can make your forms multilingual, however, it will not localize.  I will allow for your users to choose a language:


    Embedding the source code of your form allows the form to fully interact with your page.  If there is something in the page itself causing the images to be blocked, there may not be anything that can be done on our end to prevent it.

    It appears there are three common methods to access my forms to create a new submission;

    1. Embed Code in one of my web site pages

    2. Embed Code in an iFrame on a page on my website

    3. Create a link directly to my JotForm URL (same as entering the URL manually in browser)

    Can you provide more detail on the advantages and disadvantages for each?

    Assuming that all three options were available to me, would you recommend one over the others?

    Thanks in advance. (P.S. - your support responses are exceptional)
