    Does my form that's currently embeded in a website automatically update if I make a change?

    Asked by Amelia Miller  on November 08, 2016 at 01:27 PM

    Does the form update once it's embedded in another site? Or, do I have to reload the embed code? I do not currently have a form created, but am asking prior to deciding if this is the best option for me.

    Hi Amelia,

    There are different embed options in JotForm as you can see in the following image.

    If you embed your form in your webpage by iFrame, JavaScript or other embed options instead of Source Code, you don't need to reload embed code to your webpage when you make a change in your form. Please note that you need to reload embed code into your webpage if you embed Source Code of your form into your webpage.

    My suggestion is to use iFrame embed option because it is the most convenient and easiest embedding way and your form will be updated automatically in your webpage thanks to iFrame when you make any changes on your form in JotForm.

    In addition, please have a look at the following guides if you need more details about the issue.




    If you need any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Thank you.
