What's the Difference Between the Javascript and iFrame embed code?

The Javascript code and iFrame code may be used in different situations.

The Javascript solution is our recommended option. In some rare cases you may be using a web content management system that does not allow the embedding of Javascript.  In these instances you can try our iFrame code and that may work better for your content management system. 

Why Should I Use the Javascript Embed Code?

The Javascript embed option gives the most seamless website integration experience.  When you embed this on your website the form will inherit some of your website's style and fit in nicely with your website.  

There are some instances where a website content management system will not allow you to add Javascript code. When that happens you can use our iFrame embedding option.  It has more limitations with styling and what features it might be able to utilize in some specific browsers.  

How to Add the Javascript form to your Website

To add the Javascript submission form embed to your website, follow these steps:

  1. First, you’ll login to your Boast account.
  2. Then you’ll select the “Forms” tab on your dashboard.
  3. From there, find the form you’d like to embed and select "Share".
  4. Under “Embed On Your Website” copy the Javascript embed code and paste it onto your website. 

Platforms Compatible with the Javascript Submission Form Embed Code

The Javascript submission form will work on any website that allows Javascript. This includes:

  • WordPress (The popular community / self hosted version)
  • Drupal
  • Weebly
  • Wix
  • Shopify
  • Squarespace
  • ClickFunnels
  • Google Sites
  • Kajabi

If your website falls under these platforms, or allows Javascript in general, you’ll be able to incorporate the new embed form seamlessly into your website’s design.

Platforms Not Compatible with the Javascript Submission Form Embed Code

Some third party hosted websites are not compatible with Javascript embed codes. If your website is using one of these platforms, the Javascript form embed will not be compatible with your website. However, Boast is still compatible with your website in other ways. First, you can still link out to your form from your website. Using the Boast link, we give you the ability to send your customers to a Boast-hosted web page with access to your form. Secondly, we still offer an iFrame version of our response display widgets which can be added to the website builders listed. Using the iFrame may cause submission issues for photos and video.
