    I have a custom built site. I made a subscribe form (not using jotform) where you input your email address and hit a custom submit button. Can I somehow use jotform with only form action="" area of my code to submit the email written in text field?



    <form action="" method="post" class="subscribe-form"> <input type="email" name="email" class="subscribe-input" placeholder="Email address">

    <button type="submit" class="subscribe-submit">Subscribe</button>



    <form action="INSERT JOTFORM CODE" method="post" class="subscribe-form">


    Is there anything I could modify to insert jotform into the above form so I could use your service but display my custom designs?

    If you need to modify the design/appearance of your submit button, yes it can be done with JotForm. You could use and image to create the submit button from Form Builder - Demo: https://form.jotform.com/60984905209968

    But if you need to modify the way the form is submitted, I'm not sure this is actually possible.

    Well I don`t need to modify the looks, the forms design is already complete.

    I want my already existing form to work with jotform. For instance, i won`t need to build one in the online builder, since I already have a form. But, can I still use your service with my form somehow?

    Is there a possible way to to that?

    Maybe I can modify the embedded source code from jotform so it knows to use my custom button on my site when submitting something?

    Any ideas?

    You could get the source code and modify it but there are certain things if you change from it that will break the connection with JotForm.

    To have the data submitted to JotForm servers and also for security reason, you cannot have your how form submitted to our servers.
