    Inserting image for form background, V4

    Asked by Ketzie on February 07, 2017 at 10:38 AM

    In my form, "Climate Cinema Donations", using the Designer, I wanted to download and use a new image for the form background (header actually).


    I choose the image, and ask for the download, which appears to be happening, but the image isn't added, and no URL is shown in the Designer text box. The new image isn't shown with the other previously loaded images either.

    Where is my image and why isn't it shown?

    In my original post, I referred to a Form Cover. I should have said "Form Cover".

    I have cloned your form and tried to set form cover image which worked fine on my end, here's a screen-cast about it: 

    Could you please try upload a different image? 

    You may also try adding the image using this CSS code: 

    .form-all:before {

        content: "";

        background-image: url("URLTOIMAGE");

        display: inline-block;

        height: 484px;

        position: absolute;

        background-size: 1000px 484px;

        background-repeat: no-repeat;

        width: 100%;



    Replace the "URLTOIMAGE" with the link to the image you want to set as background. 

    Hope this helps.
