    You can add HTML form tags to an HTML section, but it also requires server-side scripting to work (form action).  This file would need to be hosted by different means as you do not have access to the server with GoCentral.

     

    If you're able to do that it is also important to add a target attribute to the form tag, "_top" = same window and "_blank" = new window.

     

    <form target="_top" action="https://path.to/your/form.script"...
