This guide will show you how to use the Jotform Online Forms WordPress plugin to securely embed your Jotform forms into your WordPress website.
- Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard.
- In the main menu on the left, choose Plugins, then select Add New.
- On the Add Plugins page, search and install Jotform Online Forms.
- Once installed, activate the plugin.
- To embed a form, create or edit a post or page.
- In the editor, add a Classic block.
- In the Classic block’s toolbar, click on the Jotform logo.
- Log in to your Jotform account if prompted.
- Finally, select your form in the popup window, then click Continue.
Your form is now ready. Don’t forget to save and publish your post or page.
I am trying to imbed my jotform in my wordpress site, however my forms are not showing up when I click on the jotform icon. I am signed into my jotform account. How do I get the plugin to link to my jotform account?
The plugin only loaded 8 or so of my forms and didn't work with the Divi Builder.
If I am logged in to JotForms when I click the Jotform icon in the Classic block on my site (which loads fully over https -- no mixed content issues), I get a modal that says I have no forms.
If I am not logged in to JotForms when I click the Jotform icon in the Classic block, I am prompted to log in and then I see my forms, but selecting one is not an option. I can check the box next to the form I want to embed, but there is no "Continue" button or any other way to select the form. In addition, I can't close the modal -- the x doesn't work. All I can do is refresh the editor, after which, if I click the Jotform icon in the classic block, I again get the message that I have no forms (because I am now logged in, presumably).
I am using the latest version of Chrome (just updated yesterday) on Windows 11.
The following errors and exceptions appear in the console (I totally deactivated our security plugin in case the firewall was preventing something from working right):

I appreciate any direction you could provide.
Hi! After I installed the jotform plugin in Wordpress, it does not show
I tried doing this. When I click on the jotform icon it says that I don't have any forms yet. I have created the form in my jotbform account
I have tried this. Form is public, but it does not show up in the jotform plugin in wordpress.
I'm working on behalf of firstname.lastname@example.org, and have successfully installed the Jotform Embed Forms v1.2.6 on our WordPress site.
We've embedded the form on a publicly published page, using the following code:
The form work as expected for logged-in users. However, anonymous users do not see the form; in that case, the browser renders just the script's URL, rather than the embedded iframe:
Any guidance on correcting this issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I’m wondering if you can embed this form into go daddy website?
I get the message "The plugin does not have a valid header."
You may want to note that the name in the instructions is out of date. The plugin name has changed. Instead of "Embed Form" in the instructions, it seems to be "Jotform Online Forms – Drag & Drop Form Builder, Securely Embed Contact Forms ".
Also, activating this plugin from the Plugins > Add New page, doesn't activate. I get the message "The plugin does not have a valid header."
When I press "Activate" from the Plugins page in WordPress, it activates.
i have embeded a form on my wordpress site, now i want that when user clicks on submit the form is sent using the desktop mail as a pdf attachment
Is there another way of finding the Jotform little icon in WordPress pages if I am using Glutentor Blocks? Thanks.
I was about to subscribe to the silver version until I read the comments below about the WP plugin not being updated since the last THREE major wordpress versions. The most common CMS in the world is not a priority for integration, it seems.
iframes are not an alternative, as they pose a security risk as soon as I don't control the content linked to in the iframe. Moreover they are dangerous in terms of XSS attacks.
So won't buy. Sorry guys.
is there an update for the wordpress plugin ?...
Will this plugin be updated? It has not been tested with the last 3 major wordpress versions, and this feature is advertised for HIPAA compliant forms, however HIPAA discourages using untested plugins (it is untested with the last 3 Major wordpress versions) and HIPAA also discourages using old versions of WordPress.
Is there going to be any updates to this plug in? I just bought this for this reason, and it has no compatibility with my website.
Is there a way to optimize the load time of the form? Sometimes the page with the form loads immediately, other times it can take up to 12 seconds.
Not Able To Submit
If I try to use this plugin I just get a Jotform login page, I login, it says 'Login successful' then loops back to the login page.
Many themes utilize page builders or developers will install page builder plugins, so choosing a form from the default page/post edit screen isn't the best way to integrate your form embeds.
I would recommend making a page in the Dashboard under Tools where you can login to your account and select forms to embed, or show the shortcode for the form.
How is it that you are able to show forms from your account w/o logging in via the plugin settings?
Trying to provide helpful feedback... no harsh feelings.
can i create a pdf filler form via it??
Bit of a joke that your plugin hasn't been updated for 2 years!
Really? Considering the integrations on offer and that 60% of all CMS systems online are Wordpress, it's pretty poor form that you haven't even replied to the issues below. Is there a time frame on the fix?
Tried it but when I clink the pencil, it is just a blank screen.
I have the same issue. When i click on the pencil icon it shows a grey square with the text "File not found".
By the way the plugin used to work on my Wordpress website a few months ago. Not anymore.
Tried to uninstall and install the plugin and deactivate all the other plugins related to the embeded forms.
Website's url is
Hey, my forms are not coming up when I click the pencil icon just says file not found HELP!
Actually I wish to have the form in the menu point "contact us"
I have already a contact form there from jotform but it does not work
All other forms also from jot form ar ok, only this one contact us form does not work.
Thank you very much
I have a theme installed, as well as a builder, which makes it so I don't edit my pages via the usual visual/text area of the desired page. Is there a way to use this with themes/builders, without having to add a child theme? Can I get a simple html embed code and add it to one of the body blocks on the page?
Thanks. I cannot use a plug-in at this point for various reasons. Is there an issue with the embedded version?
One last question regarding comparing Google forms to Jotform. If I used Google forms and received over 1,000 submissions is it FREE or is there a charge for submissions as what I seemed to have read .... Thank you
Please where can i find the power tool option to paste my iframe code?
My version of wordpress, the latest, is 4.8.3 and your jotform embed form only supports 4.6.8 and does not work correctly with latest wordpress version. Can you fix this. Thank You.
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?
I recommend some more current blog postings it has been 2 yrs since the last post. Maybe somehow integrate your YouTube videos into postings.
My client isn't receiving any of his filled forms, anyone got ideas? Thanks
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.
I can't see my pencil on the page editor. Although I deactivated gravity forms and contact form 7.
I have tried to embed the form in all different ways, through the code, the platform embed, and the plugin.
Nothing works.. it just shows blank when i do the preview.
how to choose the feedback button
Hello I am getting to the point where I select the form in the page in Wordpress.org and it will not let me select the Form when I press the Select form button on the bottom right of the page nothing happens ?
Ola Bom Dia
Nao consigo seleciona o form para meu wordexpresss, clico em select form e nao faz nada o botao nao executação nenhum.
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 ?
This STILL doesn't work. Jotform is a major fail when it comes to providing proper forms for Word Press!
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?
Wonderful tool for collecting information from associates / colleagues. Easy to use and integrates with Google Doc's too, which ids most helpful for me! Thanks Jotform!!
Jotform is robust and carries so many features. Not only is Jotform powerful, it is so easy to learn and use. The conditional settings within Jotform is fantastic and makes your forms look so professional. I highly recommend Jotform.
I keep getting this message when trying to activate the form. Form Generator is not Active.
Login or sign-up with Jotform to get started. connect with jotform button doesn't work at all.
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?
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
will it save to database
Is there a way to use a plugin to make the feedback button version of the form on the site as when I paste in the code it messes with my site's configuration
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!
Cant find my ID any help apreciated
