How to add forms to Joomla 2.5

October 18, 2021

Here are 2 easy ways to add your form to Joomla 2.5 Website.

A. Direct Method – This method doesn’t require plugins, all you need to do is to allow scripts and iframes to run on Editor – TinyMCE editor. Please follow the steps below.

1. Login to your Joomla Admin Panel,

2. Go to Extensions then Plugin Manager

3. Select Editor – TinyMCE

4. On Prohibited Elements box under Basic Options, replace anything with the word “test” or any text you want. Just don’t leave it empty since Joomla restores its default value when that box is left blank. Save and Close the changes afterwards.

5. After that, get your form’s iframe embed code and embed it anywhere on your post or page. Be sure to paste the form embed code on the HTML Source Editor by clicking on HTML icon button found on the post formatting toolbar.

Full screen view is highly recommended for a better viewing.

B. Alternative Method – The following guide uses JIncludes Plugin

If you have problems on the first method or if you are not using TinyMCE Editor, follow this guide.

2. Upload and Install it to your Joomla

3. Enable the Plugin and open it

4. Create a Snippet, paste your Jotform Embed Code and create a unique “Key” name. The key name is used to call the snippet where the form is placed, see step 5.

5. To call the snippet anywhere on your articles or pages, just wrap the key name with curly brackets. Example, if your key name is “Jotform” it will become {{Jotform}}
