How to embed a form to Wordpress.com

Last Update: May 24, 2016

Wordpress.com, a free blog-hosting service provider has added support for Jotform. It is now possible to embed Jotform with Wordpress.com. This is also explained on this article, Wordpress.com Now Supports JotForm Forms

In order to add a jotform to a Wordpress.com blog post follow these steps:

1. Click on the
Publish button at the toolbar



  • 2.Click on Platforms and select the Wordpress.com icon


  1. 3. Go to your Wordpress.com post or page and paste the Jotform URL. 


  2. Make sure that the Jotform URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked.


  1. 4. Publish your post or page. WordPress will automatically turn the Jotform URL into a form when you preview the post or page.

Optional: You can also wrap the Jotform URL with [embed] shortcode. It will accomplish the same effect, but does not require the Jotform URL to be on its own line.


Example:


[embed]http://form.jotformpro.com/form/31362999175971?[/embed]

I think it only shows after it has been published. The preview won't show it.
I use my Wordpress blog to RSS into my Madmimi mailout automatically. I wonder if the form will still show when it gets forwarded to MM or will that show a blank page?

I can't get thid to work with wordpress.com. I paste the code but when I publish and view the page it is blank. When I go back to edit, the code is gone.

Hi there, So, it totally works! You just need to paste it the direct link that jotform creates for you in your the text box of your post or page content for your wordpress.com site, and publish! Once it's published, you can view it.

It doesn't work me. I've tried everything written here and still got just a link to the form.

Any suggestions? Tnx!

I have tried every which way, following some of the advice on the posts here, but it always comes out as a link, not as a form. This was my test, using one of my current forms on a site I don't use anymore
https://indieactsofkindness.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/43/

any ideas? I would love to move my website to wordpress, I only kept it where it was because jotform was incompatible with wordpress.com!

Thanks!

I have the form on my wordpress.com website, using the Platform link. Once you complete the form, it just sits at "please wait" and never completes. Have tried from 3 different locations to rule out my internet. I even deleted the link and re-posted. Still not working. Thank you!
