    Hi, 

    This seam a bit strange but;

    Every time I choose to revert a form back to a previous version using the Revision History, my form is much narrower when I go to the Form editor? It also changes the background images and color to orange. This has happened to me at least 6 times in a row with 63423134202946. I then have to go to designer and change the width and background image and color to what it was again.

     

     

    Interesting, When I view the form online using Lightbox, or testing with "Open new Tab",  it appears as it should.

    Can you explain why this is happening Please!

    Regards

    Hello Robert,

    It's possible that due to a number of CSS files being loaded, the one that gets to load on to your form builder is the one that was overruled by your other codes. Meaning there were two backgrounds set on to your form, and the 2nd one is the one ruling over the 1st one. But on revert, the 1st one gets loaded. However further, when publishing, the 2nd background declaration is the one that is loading since this is the correct one according to rules on CSS.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Yes, there is a very large amount of injected css code.

    I did a search of the code and could not find any rgb, hex or text for the orange color.

    There is more that gets changed then I mentioned, for example there are two background images installed, one that has orange as the prominent color and the other sort of a floral image. I have at no time selected either of these.

    I understand that this form is going against the grain by using so much html code in the TEXT and that JF dose not recommend this as it can brake easily and is hard to fix. I can understand why JF would be reluctant in supporting this method. I keep a copy of the code  and edit it here before copying it to the TEXT-html so it is backed up. 

    I am going to try a clone of this form and cleanup the large amount of injected css code. Make some html changes and then try to use the revision history to see the results.... This more for research then anything else and who knows I may like the results.

    I do appreciate all the help and support I have received to create this form.

    Thank you!,

     

    Regards

    Hello Robert,

    Can you share the link to the form? We can probably search for the code that causes the background color to go orange.

    One method that you can use in order to have a cleaner usage of code is by getting the full HTML source of the code, place your code in an page and alter it to your desire.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    The form is not embedded at our site. I use a link from here. 

    As I indicated I do copy all the html to an editor, make changes, before copying and pasting it here.

    Right now I'm not using the form as it has a bug in a cal. When I resolve that I will make it live again.

    Just a thought, what you might try is to clone the form, make some changes, then use the Revision History to go back and then try the editor and see if you can replicate the issues.

    It's most probably from the base theme you're using "Lovely Orange" which has orange header background.

    Removing it would most likely mess up your form since this holds most of the styles in your form. This was the base theme when you started working on the design.

    Right now, your form header displays properly without orange background.

    You can always inject custom CSS codes into your form to overrule the existing theme styles.

    Thank you!

    Thanks Elton, 

    I cloned another to make this one and made changes to suite. Quite likely somewhere along the line I picked up (Agent Orange), sorry Lovely Orange, I did insert some css to override. 

    Is there a way to get ride of unwanted theme after using it once, perhaps by selecting another? I normally never use themes, I customize.

    Thanks for getting to the bottom of this for me guys.

    Yes, that's possible. You can remove the applied theme on the themes page.

    Here's how:

    1. While on the form builder, Click Themes

    2. Then click the Remove Theme button

    Then feel free to customize your form by injecting custom CSS codes into it.
