    Hi, unfortunately, this problem has re-surfaced.... The problem is occurring with all 3 of my browsers:




    The Ad-blocker on Safari is disabled. The other browsers don't have blockers. I also disabled network monitoring filters but still no success


    Please note that this is occurring when I use the Wordpress embedding code

    -- [embed]https://form.jotform.com/form/52859300922961[/embed] --

    for this WP page:



    It *does* work with View Form URL https://www.jotform.com/veshman/OHC-intake


    Thanks for the help!

    It's an issue with our oEmbed plugin. I just tried this on my website and I'm getting the same error below:

    I have now forwarded this to our developers. We will let you know here as soon as this gets fixed. For now, please use our Embed Form plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/embed-form/ or embed your form using our iframe method: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    Thanks Welvin, much appreciated! I'll wait for your update and try your solution if I need it sooner than the developers can fix it

    What is the difference between the "embed" plugin and the "oEmbed" plug in?

    No luck with the plug-ins unfortunately...


    The JotForm Embed plug in does pull up a list of forms when clicking on the pencil icon, and I can select a form, but when I press the "Select" button, nothing happens. The button changes to gray and back so it seems to be getting the click, but no form is inserted.


    I then tried the JotForm oEmbed plug in, which worked in the Pages section, but it doesn't work in the Approveme pages (this seems to be their own page type)

    oEmbed is done using a URL without having to directly parse the resource.  For example, the oEmbed code would be the code you used:


    Whereas directly embedding the form would actually add and load the form from the page:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://form.jotform.com/jsform/52859300922961"></script>
    A slight difference in the way the content is added and served.
    If you are using a wordpress.com site, the wordpress.org plugin likely will not work.  We will let you know via this thread as soon as the widget is fixed when using the oEmbed plugin.
