3rd party forms

Post by Rob » Fri Mar 13, 2020 12:49 am

I am curious if anyone has embedded a 3rd party form (like JotForms) into a layout grid as an html object and how that works?
https://www.jotform.com/

Thoughts?

Wouldn't that depend on wether the form was designed to be responsive?

I do not have any experience with jotform, so I do not know whether or not it’s responsive.
But if it is responsive then it should work.

I use Cognitoforms and they are responsive and it all works very well.

Have a look at https://www.penninescouts.org.uk/adultenquiry.html on a desktop and a mobile.

Can I ask why do you guys use a 3rd party form? Why not use WWB's own form?

I always use Wb own forms, but I have a possible client who has a series of 3rd party forms where the form is filled out and they are automatically added to a drip email marketing campaign. Seems kinda nifty. Just wanting to see if what he wants to use will continue to work in a WB website.

Rob, if it works in another application and the code of jotforms is responsive uses a combination of php, javascript and html then it will also work in WB as long as it is inserted correctly. I would simply do a trial and error project (demo) before starting anything else using jotforms in WB.

Because the forms change a lot over time and it's easier to use a third party one so I can amend them quickly. Also, Congito have done all the hard work so I just design and insert.

What text menu? In portrait mode, it should have the three line hamburger menu on the left. Can you tell me what you see?

What text menu?
You can clearly see it (see screenshot) if you look at the page in a mobile phone using desktop mode ! The menu (Text) in question reads
[GMN County Website] [National Scout website] [Contact Us]

You can also see the text menu (barely) behind the form when viewing the mobile version again see screenshot
