    Good afternoon

     

    I would like to create some forms for my clients to fill in via email, squarespace doesn't support it.  I've had a look online and I need to click on the "Embed Form" button at the top but is seems to be missing on my page, can you please help?

     

    Many thanx

    The "Embed Form" option has been redesigned by our developers, it is now called "Publish" in the form builder.

    However, please note that the embed codes in the "Publish" wizard works on a web page or a platform that accepts and runs HTML and script codes.

    Here's a guide to learn more about embedding forms in a web page and in the Squarespace:

    If you embed the form on an email message, the form will not work. This is because the email software or email clients like Gmail and Yahoo will not run Javascripts and PHP codes on an email message. You can just share the form's URL or direct link to your users, they can easily fill it out as long as they open the form on a web browser and has internet connection.

     

    Let us know if that helps.
