    Form will not update after I edit it

    Asked by tworingstudios on April 03, 2012 at 04:28 PM

    I created a form and have been editing it and refreshing the page it was embedded on. It was working fine and updating like a champ everytime I added a field. Now all of a sudden it will not update. I even did a simple edit of a Header and it won't update.

    I've tried re-embedding the source code on my page, I've tried other browsers (with the cache cleared), and still it won't update. I added a period after my first header (Basic Info) as a test to see if it successfully updates.

    Embed code:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//form.jotform.us/jsform/20935227474153"></script>

    Also there have been a couple times the form code just disappears from my Wordpress page. I've tried it on two of my Wordpress blogs.

    Please help. Thanks.

    Great, it finally updated right after I asked this. Go figure. Does it sometimes take 30 minutes to update on the embedded page?

    I am having the same issue but I don't see a resolution here.  What causes this?  I actually have a different version when I use embed and another version when I use iframes and neither version is the most recently updated one.   Please help.  Do I need to do something to update it's html for form edits other than save?
