    Hi Folks,

    I'm working with this form, which on it's own is completely responsive:


    However, embedded on my site, the form does not become responsive (viewing on iphone 5).




    I read a previous thread that suggested updating the CSS with custom code, but that did not work for me.  I'm copying the fix I attempted below, but this did not work for me:

    You can try adding mobile responsive CSS to the form:


    @media only screen

    and (min-device-width : 320px)

    and (max-device-width : 480px) {

    .form-all {

    width: 320px !important;


    .form-line {

    padding-top: 0px !important;

    padding-bottom: 0px !important;

    padding-left: 3px !important;


    img.form-image {

    max-width: 100% !important;

    height: auto !important;


    #id_1.form-line {

    padding-left: 36px !important;

    padding-right: 36px !important;



    And adjusting the the min/max widths to see if it will include the width of your phone.  I tried on a few different devices though and each one the embedded form looked to be mobile responsive.

    Could you please try following the steps mentioned in this guide on how to make your form mobile responsive: https://www.jotform.com/help/322-How-to-make-mobile-friendly-forms-on-JotForm 

    For the website, I suggest re-embedding it using the iFrame embed code, here's how to get that code: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-form-iFrame-code

    The iFrame method was just what I was looking for!! 

    I went into my wordpress page, copied the iFrame code into the "text" section of the editing area.  And presto! 

    It works perfectly and is responsive.  Thanks for your help!
