Embed: Various Webpage Embed Options

The Embed tab lists even more ways for embedding your form. Some of the popular ones are JavaScript, source code, and iframe embed methods.


The default embed option is a simple one-line JavaScript code.


The JavaScript version dynamically loads the form in an iframe. That means the width and height of the form are automatically generated. You do not need to update the code on your website every time you change something on your form.

Source Code

Use the full source code embed method if you need to edit the form’s code to fit specific requirements.


One thing to consider when using the full source code method is that you have to manually update the embed code on your site every time you make a change to your form in the Form Builder. For more information, see How to Get the Full Source Code of Your Form.


Use the iframe embed method if none of the other options work properly.


The iframe embed method is designed to work on any web page. Since the form is displayed inside an iframe, it’s less likely to cause conflict with anything on your website. For more information, see Getting the Form Iframe Code.


The WordPress option is for managed WordPress.com websites.


You don’t need to install any plugin for this option. Simply copy and paste the provided code into a Shortcode or Custom HTML block to embed the form. For more information, see How to Embed a Form to WordPress.com.

Feedback Button

The Feedback Button embed method creates a floating button on your website which displays your form in a modal window when you turn it on.


You can insert the embed code into your site’s header file to display the feedback button on your site’s pages. For more information, see Creating a Feedback Button.

The pop-up method allows you to display a link, anywhere on your website, which opens your form in a new pop-up window when clicked on.


The lightbox method allows you to display a button, anywhere on your website, which opens your form in a modal window when clicked on.


You can change the lightbox to automatically display the form when the page loads. For more information, see How to Create a Lightbox Form.
