Adding a form to Tumblr


What's Tumblr?

Tumblr is the easiest way to blog & share stuff on the web. JotForm is the easiest way to create, design, and share web forms. Two services with the same mission: to make things easier. Let’s get them to work together.



Adding a form to Tumblr with JotForm is so easy it'll blow your mind. There are 2 ways to share a form on Tumblr. You can share a web form through either the "add a text post" or "add a link" posting method on Tumblr. Let's check out the first method.





There are 2 ways on how you can add your form in Tumblr and that is the Text Method and the Link Method.


Add form via Text Method

1. On the Form Builder, click the "Publish" button.

2. Go to the "Platform" section and search for the "Tumblr". Once you find it, please click the "Tumblr" option.



3. Please click the "Copy Code" button in order to copy the embed code.


4. On your Tumblr dashboard, click the "Text" button.

5. Click the "html" button, it should be highlighted in blue. After that, you can paste the code that you copied from JotForm on the Post field.

6. Click "Post" to publish your form.


Add form via Link Method

1. On the Form Builder, click the "Publish" button.

2. In the Publish section, copy the form's direct link. In the Publish tab, go to the "Quick Share" section. After that, click the "Copy Link" button.


3. On your Tumblr dashboard, click the "Link" button.

4. Paste the direct link of the form in the URL field  then add a title.

6. Click "Post" to publish your form.

    I get the square everyone else is reporting in the dash, but the post itself wont even go on the public side.

    Is anyone from Jot even monitoring this?

  • sunningdenacres

    I just get a small grey box. I have tried all of the suggestions including the iframe suggestion.

    Put my email address into one of your forms this morning and now my fucking inbox is flooded with SPAM MAIL. Secure? BULLSHIT. NEVER use this form on your site unless you want your users to suffer for it.

    Hey guys,
    I'm trying to embed the form and have tried all I can think of.

    , as well as all codes provided by Jotform (the Tumblr one, the iFrame...everything. All I get is the tip top of the contact form.

    I've tried to force a height px, also doesn't work.

    I'm sure it's a silly thing that I'm overlooking, so I'd love a help here.
    Here's the page:

    I'm having the same problem as above - I tried it as an iframe, as a text and as a link... all just gave me a little box

    When I embed the code in my Tumblr, it creates a small clickable box graphic that takes me to a form page. Why is the form not showing up on the page I embedded it on? I've tried using the make for Tumblr code, and the regular code.
