Subject: help with google forms for CUE website
I am putting together a call for proposals for the CUE Conference, and I am using the google forms plugin to be able to add a form in the website.
The problem I am having is that it is not recognizing the formats, submission button, etc.
I am using the bridge template
Can you help me creating a shortcode for the iframe code of the google form instead?
Here is the iframe code:
<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PcTa3iIjDZ9HuQoEZaE0oVXIVDdzFeRd_L4lNGWphTg/viewform?embedded=true" width="760" height="1800" frameborder="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">Loading...</iframe>
I might need to play with the height for this for until it displays without a vertical scroll bar.
Down the line, I will also need to add other embedding pages for the broadcasting from youtube as well. If I can get access to do that without having to request special codes created for me will be great.
Thanks in advance for your help

Ray, I'm assigning this to you in case this points to a bug in your Google Docs shortcodes. (I'm not sure whether Carlos is using them, or whether they support Forms.)
If it's unrelated, I can create a quick shortcode wrapper. Or you can do it. Either way, let's make the height and width configurable through attributes, so that Carlos can modify as he sees fit.

This shortcode should work:

You can always find documentation for the Google Docs Shortcode plugin here:
Let me know if that works for you.
