FAQ

How can I place a Contact Form inside a jellybox?

Some contact forms cause the jellybox to close when entering the fields or pressing the submit button. A work around for this is to place a header line at the top of the jellybox that controls the opening and closing of the box. Here is an example that uses a Contact Form 7 inside a jellybox

[jellybox class="jellyboxGreen" width="100" height="20" deltawidth="350" deltaheight="700" deltatop="-400" gospeed="500" returnspeed="100" target="boxtrigger"]
<div id="boxtrigger">Contact us
<div style="float:right;">
<span style="color:#ffffff;">[X]</span>
</div>
</div>
[contact-form-7 id="152" title="Contact form 1"]
[/jellybox]

This example creates an [X] in the upper right hand corner of the box. Clicking anywhere on the title line or the [X] cause the jellybox to open or close as expected.

Some of my boxes have a line spaces above them

This is an issue with the wordpress wpautop() function and certain themes. The workaround for this issue has been to insert a div tag above the affected jellybox with a bottom margin that will offset the P tag added by wpautop()
