Publishing Your Web Forms

Use 123FormBuilder to build professional web forms & surveys and publish them wherever you want on the Web by selecting one of our vast publishing options. No codding skills are required in order to achieve this, only the classic copy/paste step.

There are various ways to publish forms or surveys, according to your requirements. You may post a simple text or image link, copy the link and send it to others by email, embed the form in your page or show it as a fancy lightbox. Moreover, forms can be included in Blogger, Facebook, WordPress pages and more.

The Publish section allows you to customize, preview and choose your preferred publishing type. Upgraded users have access to secured SSL connection and domain aliasing (that can be seen only when the form is opened in a new tab of your browser).

You may publish your forms & surveys in lightboxes that are of four different types: text link, image link, floating button and auto-popup. The last option may be used to pop up the form in a lightbox after a period of time has passed while the web page is opened. You may customize any of the options above as you see fit.

123FormBuilder Publish

Our online forms are compatible with all website builders that allow customized scripts, such as HTML and JavaScript.

Note: If you are a Wix user and want to know how to publish your web form or survey, follow our 123 Form Builder guide to learn more about the app and how to use it.

If you want to publish forms, it’s simple. You select the option that suits your needs best and as easy as 1-2-3, you’re set!

  1. I want a Stand-Alone form, NOT a link. How do I do this?? I want to be able to have someone download my order form, fill it out, add their attachments, and send it back to me. My site host doesn’t support an order process which allows for uploading photos from my customers so that I can build their photo project. I don’t want to send them off-site for forms as they will not come back to my business.

    1. Hello Joyce.

      You can embed the form on your website by using the embed code provided in the Publish section. Also, you can add a File Upload field so that users can directly upload their photos through the form and are stored within your 123FormBuilder account.

      If you need any assistance, you can contact our Support team at support@123formbuilder.com, or, through our contact form.

      Thanks!

  2. Hello i created a form with your site and i have been trying to edit the powered part below my form, that also as a (Report abuse ,Powered by ) how can i take it off please advise.

    1. Hello Elizabeth!

      If you encounter issues in receiving the notification emails from your form, contact our Support Team at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form. It appears it would need some investigation from our support representatives and any additional information would help us. For example, the publishing option you have used and the way you have set up your form in the Notifications section.

      Thanks!

  3. Im just confused on everything. What is a credit and why don’t you put that notification to pay more up first before letting us input all the information.

    1. Hello!

      Are you referring to the credits for SMS Notifications? If that is the case, this option is provided through BulkSMS.com, an international SMS service provider. Credits are charged as for any mobile telecommunication service, depending on the country where the SMS is sent. In other words, you are charged differently if you are located in one country or another (as the one who receives the SMS notification).

      Read more in our documentation: http://wix.123formbuilder.com/docs/sms-notifications/.

  4. I would like to use my form as an onsite tool to gather information as participants arrive. We plan to utilize 2 or three computer kiosks during a registration period. How can i use my form in this manner. WE will not be sending links to the form. Please advise

    1. Hello!

      To use your form as an onsite tool, may we recommend you use its JavaScript code from the PublishEmbed Code section. Just copy the code and paste it in the source code of your web page. Documentation here. From there on, visitors will be able to submit your form directly on the website. If you want to administrate registrations with two or more people, you’ll need to create a subaccount for each person. Subusers can be created on Platinum and Diamond plans (see our features matrix). With Platinum you can create up to 4 subaccounts (5 with the main account) and 19 with Diamond. A subaccount implies a separate email address and password that will be used to log into the 123FormBuilder account. You can grant certain permissions to your subaccounts. Find more here.

      For more information or assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our support specialists at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form.

      Thanks!

  5. So I have to upgrade to publish my appointment form to my website unless I want it as a link? I am very upset! This new change has messed everything up that I worked so hard on.

    I use to be able to hit publish and I’d see the form update automatically on my website without me having to enter codes, etc and without having to upgrade. Now I can’t publish anything!

    1. Hello Elle!

      All publishing options within the Publish section of your form are available for the Basic plan, with the exception of domain aliasing and secured SSL, which are for Platinum and Diamond. Have you tried embedding your appointment form on your website with one of the embed options? We usually recommend the JavaScript code. Just hover over the JavaScript code from the PublishEmbed Code subsection and copy the selected code. Next, paste it inside the code of your website and the form should run fine.

      If you have problems using one of the publishing options, please contact our Support Team at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form.

      Thanks!

  6. I have redesigned a Order Form in 123Forms but I can’t get it uploaded or imbedded to my Wix site…need help

    1. Hello Niki,

      Could you specify the embed code you have used (JavaScript, Iframe or Inline HTML)? We recommend you use the JavaScript code to publish the form on your website. It works on all devices and browsers. Please contact our Support Team for assistance and they will gladly help you right away.

      Thanks!

    2. Hi we would like to embed an order form in the content of an email including paypal options in the form. Is this possible and if yes how do we go about doing it.

      Our second query relating to this is, if someone were to place an order and pays for it in paypal is the completed order form sent to our designated email address?

      We look forward to your reply.

      Kind regards
      Damien

      1. Hello Damien!

        I apologize for the late reply. Regarding your first question, it’s impossible to embed an order form in the content of an email. That’s because the form is not only exclusively HTML-built and many email services reject scripts for security reasons. Read more in our documentation: Can I embed my online form into an email?

        Regarding your second question, you may enable the option Notify me only when the payment has been processed in the SettingsPayments section. This will send you the notification email only when the form user has paid the order. You may also send an email to your customers that they will receive after they have paid their order. That option is labeled Email users after their payment has been processed. You can customize that respective email message as you see fit. Read more in our documentation.

        For further assistance, don’t hesitate to contact our Support Team at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form.

        Thanks!

  7. I do not understand why I am unable to publish my form to my website without upgrading. Are you able to publish a form onto a website with the free option?

    1. I am so confused intrying your product I have just given up. I dont understand much here, i see people asking you that they cant use the form on their own domain? I cant imagine the people like myself who use dreamweaver ever skilled enough to use this program, especially when it gets so confusing at the point of redirecting to a page on my domain and the terminology used is not for the unskilled.

      1. Hello!

        Our online forms can be embedded on any webpage that supports Inline HTML, IFrame or JavaScript. These options are available on all plans, including the Basic plan, as seen in our features matrix. We also have a number of documentations on how to publish your 123FormBuilder online forms on different platforms, such as Dreamweaver. For domain aliasing, you’ll need to upgrade to Platinum or higher to enable this option.

        For any questions or assistance, we have a 24/7 in-house support team that helps each one of our clients step-by-step, no matter the plan they are using. They can be contacted at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form. They will get back to you as soon as possible and give you all the necessary information and assistance that you need.

        Thanks!
