Adding Forms to Wordpress.org Version

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.

    I've done that. Still not working...

  • anita

    good

  • skamerica

    it was always very easy to do and we never had an issue until recently, now when a person visits http://www.riversidebartendingschool.com/mobile-contact-form/ 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.

  • Krnnagel

    Im really struggling, please help, I have tried several ways, I have tried with embed plugin, with the oEmbed plugin and Iframe...this is do frustrating, I hope you don't mind helping.

    Here is the URL where I have tried to put it in,http://peasinapodphoto.com.au/contract-sign/

  • 'Cesca

    I've followed the instructions, but when I publish the code disappears so nothing appears on the page.

  • shezza28

    I'm using wordpress 4.5.1 and when I embedd the code in the text area, nothing shows up just a blank space. I've also tried iframe but no luck.

    Please help!!

  • magicalmothering

    The form came up, but when I press submit it just says please wait. Nothing else...

    any help?

  • mredzic

    Still doesn't work. THe form doesn't show. I tried the iframe method too, and it didn't work. Any updates please?

  • Lane

    I grabbed the embed code and pasted it into the text field as described. The site is stripping out part of the code every time I hit update. Consequently, I can't get our form to display. Any ideas? http://multipub.com/capterra/

  • TrademarkCapitalFinance

  • WinningEdgeFootball

    I'm having the same problem on http://winningedge7on7.com/registration/2015-coachteam-registration and http://winningedge7on7.com/registration/2015-7on7-player-registration -- neither method works for embedding the forms.

  • uberspaceguru

    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?

  • uberspaceguru

    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

  • skoppikar

    I have not ben able to add the form I used the instructions by pasting the code in the 'Text' area on a page and post the form does not appear.
    Tried the plugin no luck.

    Any ideas?

  • asiskumar

    I followed the instructions and yet the form does not show up. 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.

  • Taneka

    Are Jotform plugins free?

  • C C

  • underthemilkwood

    My form ID is obviously without the == at the end, that was me being stupid copying and pasting it from the error message lol

    Please help! x

  • underthemilkwood

    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==

    Second option works great.

  • doghousing

    Hi. I have our website mapped to Wordpress.
    www.doghousing.org
    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:
    http://form.jotform.us/form/23195833228154
    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.

  • demetriusaustin

    is anyone having an issue with the "submit" button not appearing on your page in Wordpress? I have a self-hosted site and everything shows withe the exception of the "submit" button.

    I have tried both the javascript option and the plug-in.

  • mlzjoaomlz

    não to conseguindo

  • latex1

    I have a self hosted site and the form appears fine in chrome and firefox.

  • Patrick Rauland

    For those people who are having trouble with WordPress automatically deleting the JavaScript code I created a small plugin that prevents that from happening.

    This works until you click the "Visual" tab and save changes... it deletes the jotform script.

    Get the iframe embed code from jotform for your form...

  • ISISInt

    I added the Popup code in an Text widget on the sidebar and that worked well.
    But I need to get the user reg of wp into the form...

  • dmjcalma2011

    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.

  • Voctronica

    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?

  • ThisTechBoi

    Groovy is right; the form does not show when you paste the code into WordPress HTML section.
