Adding Forms to Version

Last Update: August 13, 2017

WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. Now, adding JotForm forms to a self-hosted Wordpress blog post/page is pretty easy.

1. On the Form Builder, navigate to PUBLISH > PLATFORMS > WORDPRESS.ORG (dark WordPress logo).

2. Click the COPY CODE button.

3. On your WP admin's "Add New Page/Post" page, click the "HTML or Text" tab above post text area.

4. Paste the embed codes there then save your changes.

That's basically it! Click Preview or View on your WordPress dashboard to see your form.

Hmm I'm having some difficulty I was putting a form as a text widget, and it worked great at first! then i made some size adjustment etc etc and it stopped working completely anyone know about this? Or will they really only work on the page of post?

I am currently using my form as a Lightbox and pasting it in my Wordpress sidebar. The link appears as simple text. I would like to change that to an image. How can I do that?

You all replied to me on twitter and gave me the link to this adding forms help page.
When I go to the embed form option, there is no embed form wizard that enables me to select the wordpress option.
What it does show me is a small dialogue box with the source code and button options to either customize or preview it.

Hi. I have our website mapped to Wordpress.
In order to be able to add plug-ins, do we have to have the "custom design" purchased? I don't have a selection option of plug-ins on the left hand side of my dashboard.

I created this form:
I've embedded it into our Facebook and would like to embed it into our website so we're consistent with the form people fill out.

The form appears fine for me using the plugin, however once you press submit it produces a frame that says "oops form not found"

It displays my form id but with two == behind it. Not sure how to get round this...


My form id : 30753496546362==

It looks like JotForm Integration with Wordpress is Hopelessly Broken at this point. Which really sucks since it's such an awesome tool.

I'm currently trying to figure out a work around. Copying the Javascript embed code seems to work... but only sometimes... Still trying to figure out how to pass variables into jotform if i use the embed code.

All WP Plugins for Jotform so far as pretty much useless

This doesn't work for me, first of all I can't pass any form values this way & if there's any other HTML in the page (in my case I'm using a page builder), then this doesn't work.

Is there any wordpress plugin for Jotform that actually works?

it was always very easy to do and we never had an issue until recently, now when a person visits fills out the form and taps submit they are warned that the form is not secure. The other 2 forms (1 is actually the same just placed in the side widgets) perform the exact same way. Seem a bit fishy to me.
