Is it safe to remove jot form's query strings?Asked by PunkHealth on January 22, 2016 at 06:26 AM
I'm running some speed analysis tests on our new website, and some advice is to remove query strings from static pages. Jotform has several of these:https://cdn.jotfor.ms/css/printForm.css?3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/css/responsive.css?3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/css/styles/nova.css?3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/js/vendor/jquery-1.8.0.min.js?v=3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/js/vendor/maskedinput.min.js?v=3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/js/vendor/math-processor.js?v=3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/js/widgetResizer.js?REV=3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/static/formCss.css?3.3.10821 https://cdn.jotfor.ms/static/jotform.forms.js?3.3.10821 https://js.jotform.com/vendor/postMessage.js?3.3.10821
So I'm wondering:
Is it safe to remove these using a Wordpress plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/remove-query-strings-from-static-resources/ ?

I believe by removing them, it would affect your forms functionality, I recommend embedding the form using the Iframe embed method, in this way, it will not conflict with anything within your webpage.
I am forwarding this to our developers to get a more accurate answer. You will be advice via this thread.

Some of the strings contains CSS coding, so if you remove them you might loose CSS responsiveness and the styles of the form. Some others have to do with jquery libraries, and these are functions added to the form. So it would be good to either embed the form using the iFrame method or the WP embed plugin
