Getting the Form iFrame Code

Last Update: August 9, 2017

iFrames are commonly used on embedding 3rd party services to your web page. Social sharing buttons, various widgets, and most of the stuff out there is added with an iFrame code.

Don't know the difference between embed codes? Check it out here.

Copy the iFrame Embed Codes correctly and pretty much nothing can break the form on your page. Since your form is called inside an iFrame it does not conflict with anything on your page.

To get the iframe code, please follow these steps:

1. Click PUBLISH at the top of your Form Builder.

2. Go to the EMBED section.

3. Select the IFRAME embed option.

4. Lastly, click the COPY CODE button to copy the codes.

Tell us how'd you do? Please share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section below.

-several people on this page mention errors they received using the iframe method. JotForm support has not yet replied to these errors.

-the image in this page is broken.

-when i use the iframe method, the iframe height is much larger than it needs to be.

-The script method should be able to scroll up automatically, since it is script.

the width of the iframe is much wider than it needs to be-- it's wider than the web-page where i'm putting the form.

I tried iframe and it didn't work. I'm using adobe muse. The transparent back ground also didn't work. I had cloned a form that your tech support had changed the background color in the css script. I double checked the clone in a text editor and the background color shows .supernova body {
background-color: transparent;
Then I saved the form and went into iframe. It wasn't transparent and the form itself could not be edited in height on the html

iFrame code did not enable the form on a mobile device for me. iFrame form displays just fine on Chrome and Explorer. Mobile device shows blank area, and the device tries to load the page constantly.

Why did you just send me a rehashed solution which obviously doesn't work.

Reading through the comments regarding this solution they all say that it doesn't work and not surprisingly when I tried the iframe code again (I had already tried this before I posted my question) it doesn't work either.

So can you please give me a solution that works? That would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I have a problem with my form not showing up on some Macs / OS X / ipads. After I have used the embed-method for my joomla site until now, I read about the iframe-workaround for my problem.
So I updated Joomla (3.4.3), installed Sourcerer (5.0.2) and updated my Module with the iframe-Code (replaced the embed-code). After this unfortunately the form only shows half.
After checking CSS I can see height of my form is set to 180px. But in the code I pasted into Sourcerer it states this:

style="width:100%; height:2064px;

What I am missing?

Thanks a lot!

Simple question I hope! Once form is embedded (that bit worked, thank you!), if you make changes to the form within Jotform does the embedded form update?

What is wrong with my page embed code ???
When I use the code off my webpage, the page loads no problem ?
Also, until recently...this page worked just fine ! So, I dont understand how the code has suddenly become "Wrong" ???
The exact code works on another page on my website ! The only difference between the 2 is that the other page is in Chinese !

Also, the above "Embed Code" button on this page is absolutely useless !
