How to get the Full Source Code of your Form

Last Update: May 6, 2017

Would you like to add additional text contents or any HTML Codes to your form but outside the Jotform Builder? Would you like to host the form files to your own server? If yes, then that is possible with embedding your form using our Source Codes method. Here are the steps:

1. Click the "Publish" button from the top toolbar

2. Click the "Embed" option

3. Select the "Source Code" from the Embed Options

4. Click the "Copy Code" button to copy the form source codes

If you'd like to host the form files to your own server, you can download a compressed and refined version of the form with its separate CSS and JS files by clicking the "Download Source Code" button from the Publish wizard:

Note when using the Source Codes: Every time you change (add or remove fields) from your form in the form builder, you must update the form codes on your site by re-embedding the form. This is because the source codes that are currently embedded to your page are not automatically updated.

Sorry my poor english.

I have a question.

If you download the form code and incorporate the page it will continue with the limitation of 100 submissions per month?

I see that some have problems with implementing these HTML codes into Google Blogs (

Try implementing the code into HTML Gadget.

I cannot get this to work on a different page other than the HTML page that is packaged with. Also when I move the assets (and obviously change the hooks/links in the html page) for some strange reason the JS doesn't work correctly. *****Also the Assets are missing the "protoplus-ui-form.js" I had to yank it from your max server. Thanks for providing this option though, very cool!

Is it possible to edit the source code without hosting the form files on my own server? I'm looking to add a pop-up thank you message, but prefer to use the HTML embed on my web page. Thanks!

For an easy to use software the fix is not in keeping with the ease of use. The form I spent the morning to create looks great but is useless with the issue of the return key. I am unable to work through the complexity of the fix Time wasted!
