    How to have image background no repeat and fixed?

    Asked by booking2 on February 24, 2017 at 07:09 AM



    I have an issue with the background image. Although in the form builder is ok, when i preview or go the the form designer, it disappears. I want the image that is at the moment in the form to be "fixed", not repeated, to the whole form's height.


    I have even try to clone it and insert the background image from scratch but with no luck.


    I have read and try to implement all other problem solving issues but again no luck.

    Please try this:

    1. Remove the image you placed,

    2. Go to Form designer:

    3. Go to CSS:

    4. And copy and place the below code:

    .supernova {

    background: url("https://www.jotform.com/uploads/Nik_C/form_files/2323.709.143.jpg") no-repeat center center fixed;

    -webkit-background-size: cover;

    -moz-background-size: cover;

    -o-background-size: cover;

    background-size: cover;

    What you could do only is to change the URL.

    Please test and let us know how it works for you.

    Thank you!

    Thanks a lot for this. It is working nicely but i do not want the form to be transparent. I only need the picture to be showed around the form.


    thanks a lot

    I'm glad we're getting close. I tested your form but it is not showing transparent, here is my clone of your form: https://form.jotform.com/70582431651958

    Anyhow, you can change the form color here:

    If the problem persists, please let us know.

    Thank you!
