In Joomla! 1.5.8 I am trying to embed several forms I created on JotForm and I'm having peculiar results. At first, I copied and pasted the form code, provided by JotForm, into an article, but it didn't even come close to working. Then, after searching online, I found a discussion that suggested (really, more than a suggestion) turning off the TinyMCE 2.0 editor (Site/Global Configuration). I did this and it worked like a charm.
All of this took place in a sandbox, so I wanted to do the same thing in a demo. However, when I tried the same procedure and "save" or "apply", the editor (which, remember, is turned to No Editor) lops off the top part of the code and its closing tags:
I checked all the settings in the Sandbox and compared them to the demo and they seem to be the same. I copied the code from JotForm and put it into a text editor (TextEdit, the Coda) but that did not work. I tried this in Safari 3.2.1 and Firefox 220.127.116.11 and that made no difference.
I thought I might have a conflict with an extension or plugin, so I did a fresh install of Joomla! (via my host provider, SiteGround; I used Fantastico), without the dummy data and that did not work.
It is very frustrating. I can see what is happening - part of the code is getting annihilated when I save or apply. However, this is not consistent because it does work in my sandbox version - same Joomla!, same PHP, same MySQL, same JotForm code.
Anyone have any ideas?
