Adding a Form to Google Sites

Last Update: August 13, 2017

What is Google Sites?

Google Sites is a structured wiki and web page creation tool offered by Google to help anyone create websites where people can collaborate and share files. JotForm helps those who need customized web forms in their Google Site. Watch the video or follow the steps below to add form to Google Sites.

1. On the Form Builder, click PUBLISH at the top.

2. Go to the PLATFORMS section.

3. Search for GOOGLE SITES then click it to open the publish wizard.

4. On the next page, click the COPY CODE button.

5. Now, go to your Google Site then switch to EDIT MODE.

6. Go to the INSERT tab then select ••• MORE GADGETS.

7. On the next page, select ADD GADGET BY URL on the left.

8. Paste the gadget URL you just copied from your Form Builder.

e.g. http://hosting.gmodules.com/ig/gadgets/file/102235888454881850738/jotform.xml

9. Gadget settings will open where you should type in your Form ID in order to add the form to your page. The Form ID is that long string of numbers found at the end of your form URL. For example:

Demo: https://sites.google.com/a/jotform.com/jotform-support/

If you wish to set your form background to be transparent, have a look at our guide on Making the Form Background Transparent.

    I found it simpler to copy the URL into a iFrame wrapper Gadget - worked like a charm.

    I have tried this repeatedly and followed your instructions. No matter what I do, a foreign language contact form appears instead of my email address signup.

  • kkeene

    It does not work for me at all....

  • beatylaw

    So why is the form id a secret with no information about how to find from id?

  • buildyourtour

    Getting the following error

    The gadget you added is not valid

    Unsupported feature: org.apache.shindig.common.xml.XmlException: Content is not allowed in prolog. At: (1,1)

  • servers

    is working perfect !!! I am sorry Admin , I just put wrong ID number, it is a my fault... thank for great product

  • Is this on

    Is this so?

  • LBevans1

    Where do you find the "form ID"?

  • enricovermaak

    I agree with nepeansynchro.
    Using the way described in this article doesn't work because the call to submit is done via http and not httpS (thanks Fiddler) :-)

    I inserted the httpS URL into an iFrame (using Google Sites)

  • Darkmaz

    Дольшое спасибо Вам за совет. ВСе прошло замечательно.

  • SCFNA

    This worked perfectly, even better than embedding Google's own form! This product is an excellent middle ground between Google Forms and a full blown shopping cart product, and infinitely more flexible. LOVE IT!

    Is there an easy way to auto resize the form for viewing with a mobile phone? I find the view is great through a PC, but get's cut off when viewing with a mobile phone. I am currently using a form within a Google site.
