    How can I edit the design of the form warning/error pages?

    Asked by BrightonPAC on May 17, 2017 at 10:30 AM


    I will be setting our form to be unavailable at certain dates/times. At the moment the 'warning' message that is in place of the form has a dark background, and the text is set to default fonts/colors:

    font-fafont-family: Verdana, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    font-size: 14px;

    color: #333;

    It is also contained within a box with a bg color of ##545454 which doesn't suit my site either.

    Can you please tell me what CSS I can add to my form to make this consistent with the active form and thus the rest of my web site?

    Many thanks.

    Sorry but the warning pages can't be customized - All kinds of error/warning pages can't be modified with CSS or by any other means.

    As an alternative, why not use a Time FieldCondition and a Section Collapse tool to hide the entire form? Afterwards use a Text Field to show this same message to your users.
