    I was under the impression that anything uploaded to Jotform would not fill up the server space on Jotform. Is this an incorrect assumption? My client (printer) needs an inexpensive way to have their customers upload files. Your $9 per month is too much for them. Thank you!

    I'm not sure where the problem is occurring. The plugin is installed. I type the [jotform id=XXXXXXXXXX] into the post, a random image is what is referenced. Can anyone help? Thanks. Susan

    I just used this plugin for my form. My form takes up my WHOLE screen, overtop of my webpage. I am using the generic TwentyTen theme for Wordpress. What is causing this problem?

    Login or sign-up with Jotform to get started. connect with jotform button doesn't work at all.

    I'm using the Page Builder plugin and cannot get the JotForm Embed to work with it. Any thoughts.. I wanted to add my JotForm to a 3 column row on the right 3rd. Any thoughts?

  • eluxe

    This STILL doesn't work. Jotform is a major fail when it comes to providing proper forms for Word Press!

  • MItravels

    It works if i use the normal wordpress like in the video but the shortcode doesnt work if I try to add it to a text while using beaver builder. Any ideas ?

    I have tried to embed the form in all different ways, through the code, the platform embed, and the plugin.

    I can't see my pencil on the page editor. Although I deactivated gravity forms and contact form 7.

    FYI this plugin hasn't been updated in 10 months and is untested with the latest version of WP. Don't know if this is an issue or not but thought I'd bring to the attention of people who see this.

    My client isn't receiving any of his filled forms, anyone got ideas? Thanks

    We're looking at using the JotForm plugin on our WordPress site. I understand a user can part-complete a form and then 'sign-in' later to complete it? Is that the case?
    Plus - when a form is completed and supporting documents are attached, where does the form data reside and how is it accessed?
