Recently some of you may have noticed our interface has changed slightly. The toolbar button to get your form embed code has been updated from Embed Form/Source Code to a simple Publish button. Once you finish building your form, you can now click on Publish to get the codes for your form.
This brings up the brand new publish codes interface.
The link option is very straight forward. Press the Copy Link button and it will save the link to your clipboard. If you want to use a custom link, press the pencil icon and type in the custom form name that you’d like.
The Embed option provides the universal embed codes. Further descriptions are as follows:
- Source Code. In some cases you might want the entire source code of your forms. This gives you all the source files for it, which developers may make minor adjustments to.
- Feedback Button. This is a whole new effect, and places a tab on the edge of your page. When clicked, it brings up your form in a lightbox.
It comes with a full suite of customizable settings.
- Pop-up. This code will display a link to your form. When clicked the form is displayed in a pop-up window.
- LightBox. This is similar to the feedback button, except that it displays a button that can be placed anywhere on the page. It also comes with a set of customizable options.
Oftentimes users have a specific web building platform they’d like to add Jotform to. The platforms tab provides specific embed option for the most popular platforms around the web. This includes WordPress, Blogger, Facebook, Wix, Joomla, Tumblr, Squarespace, and many more. Just click the icon and you’ll find exact instructions on how to embed it.
