    iFrame embed widget and free text field with iframe html code does not show in my jotform form.

    Asked by Heeschen on August 22, 2016 at 12:16 AM


    I would like to use an iframe showing content of another webpage within my form.

    Therefore I used to build this in 2 ways:

    1. using the jotform iframe embed widget, entering the page address and the height and width.


    2. placing some html5 iframe code in the html5 scripting area of the normal jotform text field

    Both ways show only a white blank area!!

    I tested it in safari and google chrome browser, no effect.

    Please help me and explain how i can show other webpages within an jotform.

    Thank you !!!

    The website you are trying to show in your form (www.google.de) does not allow their page to be embedded in an iFrame, which is why they cannot be seen on your form.

    You can check out this documentation for more info: X-Frame-Options

    Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to circumvent this. You will only be able to display a webpage in an iFrame if that page specifically allows it. And since google.de doesn't, then we will not be able to show it. You may need to embed a different page in your iFrame widget.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
