As the whole website and all the services are excellent, this new form too shows the never-ending work you are doing to develop the system further. Easy to use - thanks.

artsmith (January 01, 2011 at 03:50 PM)

I copied the direct link, inserted into my blog, nothing happened.
What does secure form mean?

what does custom url mean?

When I get code from one of the buttons below ( i chose lightbulb) why doesn't the code i put on my blog show up on the blog itself?

Why am I always having to deal with mysteries in everything I try?

OnTaskAssistants (January 01, 2011 at 05:53 PM)

The old embed form popped up as well...covering the new embed form.

ankenytemp (January 01, 2011 at 07:55 PM)

It is very slow...But works ok

Astronauts4Hire (January 01, 2011 at 11:25 PM)

I like the new form. It is usable and navigable (a la iPad/iPhone...).
Why is the simple script embedding not good for Blogger?

Anonymous (January 02, 2011 at 03:35 AM)

I absolutely love this wizard. It was easy to figure out my first time on the sight!

Adminrent (January 02, 2011 at 05:10 AM)


First of all: Jotform is great, Bottomline!
Now the bad news:-) The new embed wizard is a bit confusing so I am still embedding my forms the "traditional way" which works just fine.
Maybe some additional info on the wizard will change my mind!


dpwd (January 02, 2011 at 06:33 AM)

doesnt work!

ezforms (January 02, 2011 at 06:13 PM)

I like it and appreciate it

egeg (January 03, 2011 at 04:20 AM)


Your form is stored on Jotform site hence the direct link acts a standard url. You can ask your visitors to go to that link either by copy&pasting it in the address bar of their browsers; or you can simplify this process and create a link using different methods depending on your content management system.

Aside from the technical differences, securing your form is a more reliable way of collecting data in contrast to standard connections, at the expense of a small amount of speed. Though it is not a necessity in most situations such as gathering marketing data or feedback, it is essential if you're collecting rather more personal data such as addresses, telephone numbers, etc. Be aware that secured forms will use the secure submission quota .

A custom-url is essentially the same thing as the direct link. End result is the same, you are just accessing that link via a different route. For instance, if you were to type form-1 in the custom-url field and click save, then you would be able to access your form via as opposed to our generated links (which would still remain usable nevertheless)

If you wish to embed your form into your site using an option such as LightBox, you should embed the code given there, directly into the html code of your site. But be aware that some cms packages may block javascript, in which case you should follow the instructions corresponding to your cms.

If you can post a question in our support forum with more details, such as your content management system and its version, we can help you further.

Can you please elaborate a little more and try clearing your cache?

Some platforms may block usage of javascripts at certain parts of your site as a security measure, hence we're just presenting you with tried and tested methods. Theoretically, it should work but we are currently testing to see what works and what doesn't across platforms. You can find more about it in the user guide after we finish our tests.

I hope this excessively long post helps :)

El de antes era más facil. Ahora, voy intentando varias veces subir el formulario a Blogger y no puedo lograr que se vea, ni en un nuevo post, ni en el widget pages. Les consulto si el que haya direccionado el blog a puede provocar que no se vea. Aunque con otros blogs direccionados, con el viejo sistema, nunca tuve problemas.. mi correo:
Gracias (voy a seguir intentando publicar el formulario hasta lograrlo)
Un abrazo

Great idea BUT I user EWxpression Web v1?? and while the page looks good in design mode, it loooks different in preview mode or when published.
A small brown square precedes each line. Also, a box displays "should be empty" in the captcha object.
I have to use Embed and not see the form in design mode until we resolve this issue.
Thanks for a GREAT product!

I tried embedding in several different ways using the Embed Form Wizard, and all were successful.

The Lightbox option doesn't work if you use more than one form per page in IE (Internet Explorer or "Exploder"). You have to take out the subsequent calls to the script in your HTML code on the page. Here is explanation of the problem and the hack:

JotFormSupport (May 04, 2011 at 11:49 AM)

Are you planning to use Static FBML? If not I advise you to use iframe code in your TabPress application. You can also put image/s on the top of the form.
