    Asked by rumblehouse on March 08, 2012 at 03:06 PM

    built link to a pdf file on our hosting server.  comes back as 404 in Jotform environment when operating as an active form.  Link does work in standard browser and pdf opens just fine.

    Double check the link in your thankyou message. 

    I have made an alteration to your form, and it appears to be working now. 

    I assume its the 'Hidden Secrets Part1' link?

    Tried Iframe source, the pdf now works but the form is fragmented in half
    vertically. Can barely get data in to input text boxes
    I have a frame based web page where the form code is part of a frame
    itself between mark up. "Source" display seems to be the onlyproperty that works in that the form is completeBill
