    Hello, my name is Igor.

    I'm having trouble to insert the form code into my Blogger's template.

    Using the Iframe version, the code works perfectly, but I'm trying to follow this tutorial: How to receive the page's address which the submitted form is embedded in?. So I can know from which page the form was submitted.

    I copied the full source code of the form, as it was requested in step 5 of the tutorial, but when I paste it into my template, no matter if I change something or not, I always get this message:

    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.

    I'm not very knowledgeable in JavaScript and HTML, but I did not notice any error in the form code. If necessary, I can post the form code here.

    I wonder if anyone can help me to solve this little problem.

    Ps.: As I said, I'm trying to add the code into my template, not in a static page or article.

    Sorry the bad English, I'm using Google Translator.

    I await a response.
    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, I am not familiar with Blogger templates. So, hard to say anything. Can you ask about it on support forums for Blogger. If you find a solution please also let us know.

    Hi, thanks for your quick response. I asked in the Blogger's Help Forum and other forums, but I believe that no one will help me with this.

    So, I want to make a suggestion, if allowed.

    I would suggest an update in the embed codes of the forms, so they could inform automatically the page where they were filled in, this way we would not have to paste the full source code into the template, avoiding problems.

    And I know this question is not related to the first one, but is there any way to add a field that transforms the value entered into a link? For example, I have a field on my form called "Your blog", and I would like the value entered in this field appear clickable when I received the form in my email, is this possible? If it's not, i would like to suggest a new field for this feature.

    Thanks for your patience.
