Adding a form to Joomla

Last Update: May 3, 2017

Article Updated: June 11, 2011

1. On "Setup & Embed" tab on the toolbar, click on "Publish" button. Click "PLATFORMS"  tab and type "Joomla" in the search field.




2. Copy the code provided.

If you see a "Plugin Manager" on your Joomla:

3. Go to plugin manager and click on tiny TinyMCE 2.0

4. Go to plugin parameters. Select "never" on "Code cleanup" on save option. Then save it.

5. Find the page you would like to add the form and click on "Edit" icon.

6. On the editor text area, click on the "HTML" icon.

7. On pop-up "HTML Source Editor" and paste the code.


If you don't see a "Plugin Manager" on your Joomla:

3. Go to Site > Global Configuration page.

4. Change "Default WYSIWYG Editor:" to "No WYSIWYG Editor". Then save new settings.

5. Find the page you would like to add the form and click on "Edit" icon.

6. On the editor text area, click on the "HTML" icon.

7. On pop-up "HTML Source Editor" and paste the code.


If nothing works:

1. Install Jumi: http://edo.webmaster.am/jumi

2. Upload and install thru Joomla - make sure jumi is enabled in the plugin manager

3. To create the form: go to module manager - create new module - pick jumi

4. In "module parameters" paste the JotForm code into the "code written" box.

(Thanks Viki for this solution)

    Hi,

    First I would like to say that this is great what you are doing here.

    The thing is that for joomla I use jce editor not tinyMCE. How can I configure this out? :|

    Help please!

    Thank you and waiting for your answer!

  • cmoore

    No problem, I use JCE as well. You will need to go to the user manager (site/user)and for editor select none. Once you have pasted your code into the article you can return back to the user manager and re-select jce as your editor. Be aware that anytime you open the article (or module) that has your code you will need to first go to the user manager and select no editor otherwise as soon as you open the article the code will be stripped.
    Hope this helps.

    Using Jumi, when placing the script, it gets deleted out also.

    I am now setting up my site and i use sourcerer plugin from nonumber and it works fine. It allows you to add source with any editor without it being stripped..so far so good! Used on previous sites as well for other things for it takes php, javascript html etc.

    The solution to Joomla stripping out & tags.

    In Joomla! 1.5.8 and later, a default filtering choice is in place.

    As such there are certain tags which are on a Black List and will always be stripped out on saving.

    To switch this 'Black List' off follow the instructions below.

    1. Go to your site 'Control Panel'
    2. Click 'Global Configuration'
    3. Click 'Text Filters'
    4. Change Administrator and Super Users to 'No Filtering'
    5. Save

    And your done!

    1. Go to your site 'Control Panel'

    OK

    2. Click 'Global Configuration'

    There is no such option.

    3. Click 'Text Filters'

    4. Change Administrator and Super Users to 'No Filtering'

    5. Save

    "And your done!"

    The form looks perfect , but why is the receipient of the mail not receiving emails, is there anywhere i should setup before copying the codes.

    Ray.

  • sctourism

    Every time I add the code, it includes all the other text on the page over again, along with the page headers and everything. Why is it duplicating the page instead of just putting in the form?

  • Shadrack Emachar

    How do i align it to maybe left or center?
