I followed the steps above and everything went smoothly, but when I went to display the page I got an error "you are not authorized to view this resource". Not sure if this is at the joomla end or the jotforms end

I followed all the steps exactly like you have it listed. Then nothing shows up at all. Sometimes it pops up for a second then goes away and no way to see it
