    How do you add an image to the surround outside of the width of your form? Can you make images a little transparent?

    Cool. THX. Now I just need to know how to add an image as the background like in the examples on the other help form. Not the main form, but behind the form.

    To add background outside to your form, use this CSS code:

     

    body, html{

    background: blue;

    height: 100%;

    }

    Just inject that code to your form. You can change the color up to your preference.

    Example:

    Thanks.

    I do understand about changing the color, but I would like to add an image. A jpeg.

    Sorry about that. Use this:

    body, html{

    background: url('http://formdemos.awardspace.biz/images/pattern8-pattern-76c.png') repeat;

    height: 100%;

    }

    Just change the image link to your image direct link. Thanks.
