    Background image is not showing

    Asked by CMRImarcomms on January 30, 2017 at 02:55 AM



    I have uploaded a background image for my form but it is showing white. I have tried removing it and uploading it again, but that doesn't work.

    Please can you help me?

    Thank you!

    I saw the image you uploaded on your form. I grabbed the URL of that bg image and used it with CSS to set the background image.

    Just inject the following CSS Codes:

    .supernova {

        background-image: url(https://www.jotform.com/uploads/CMRImarcomms/form_files/CMRI20160424_DSC5058_web.181.jpg);


    Here's where/how to inject the codes:

    Thank you but the problem is that when I insert the CSS, the image is showing multiple times in squares and not the full screen like we need it to and how you have shown.

    How can i fix this?

    Edited the code shared by my colleague, try this one instead: 

    .supernova {

        background-image : url(https://www.jotform.com/uploads/CMRImarcomms/form_files/CMRI20160424_DSC5058_web.181.jpg);

        background-repeat: no-repeat !important;

        background-attachment: fixed !important;

        background-size: cover !important;


    You can see how this looks like in this test form that I have: https://form.jotform.com/70291753743964 

    Let us know if that works.
