My library is switching to a hosted website and cannot use html forms.  Is an iframe version available?

Yes, when you publish your form, after creating it, you'll have the code for a number of different formats; from a link, to a pop-up, to an i-frame... etc., etc.... good luck!

Thanks for a great question and your response!

You can indeed use an iframe, and you can locate that by selecting "add this to your site" from the downward-facing arrow next to the name of your signup form.  You'll then be brought the a page that will give you an array of options.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any additional questions on this one!

Is there a way to manipulate the iFrame? Basically, I'd like to style it to fit our website's look and feel.
Also, is the iFrame the only way to embed an emma email collection field onto a webpage?
Thank you!

Hi there!

When you click on "Add this to your site" you'll be presented with a few options.  If you're after a way to customize the look and feel of that form then using the JavaScript object will allow you to customize the appearance using CSS.  I'd recommend taking a look at our Resource Center article here that gives a pretty good run-down of how that all works, of course you would need to be comfortable editing the CSS on your website.  Alternatively you could use a Lightbox form instead, these are a really effective way of collecting emails by adding a pop-up to your site.  They also look a bit cooler too.  If neither of those options suit you, we do have an open API that is able to communicate with third party signup form plugins such as Formstack or Gravity Forms.

Hope that helps!
