Embed Form Plugin for Wordpress

June 07, 2013
Today, we are releasing Embed Form Plugin for Wordpress. Using Embed Form Plugin adding a form to your blog post is very easy. Simply click on the JotForm icon on your post editor. 

You can pick a form with a simple click of a button right from the Wordpress editor.  

The form will be added within your blog post. Ready to accept submissions.  

If you use forms a lot in wordpress for things like surveys, contests, online petitions, paypal payments, bookings, or just for simple feedback/AMA this plugin will make things quick and easy for you.

Oops, guess it was released a little too soon. the plugin is broken. Installed, pencil icon appears. Clicking it does nothing. Not the only one having this issue.

Am I missing something? I have installed the plug in, and yes see the button in the page editor. Clicking on it does nothing. I can't see how it would know what my Jotform account is to bring me back a list of forms to use, so where do I set that up?.

OK scratch that, as I have tried it in Chrome and not Firefox where a window did pop up for sign in to my Jotform account. I couldn't see anywhere in your instructions that I would get this.

Hi: I do not get the list of forms as it is shown in the screen shot. I can either embed the script or try to use a short code. Neither of which work. I'm working with Wp v3.9.1 and v1 of your plugin. Thanks for any help!

Are you guys aware this plugin doesn't work with the latest version of wordpress?

I've tried embedding a form from Safari, Firefox and Chrome and the selection windows never disappears and no shortcode (or anything otherwise) is embedded into the wordpress content editor.
