Disabled Form: Possibility to style the page of a disabled form

    is there a way to have a nicer looking message about the form being disabled/offline?

    I have to shut down registrations periodically for a program and I'd rather something nicer than the attached screenshot.

    Is it possible, and if not what alternatives do you suggest?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to style the disabled form message. You can only change the text. 

    I will raise this to our developers to see if this can be implemented. However, we cannot provide you the exact time when and if this will be implemented. 

    The only alternative is to show a disabled message on your form. For example, if you are disabling the form on a date. You can add a hidden date field to your form and use conditional logic to hide all fields on your form and show a custom message after a certain date. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/72785869379987 

    To test it, select a date after today's date (10-06-2017).

    Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once

    I second the wish to have this be an enhancement. Take a look at my screenshot and see how horrible it looks in an embedded form—half of it is cut off.
