    I'm using the Google sites gadget (http://hosting.gmodules.com/ig/gadgets/file/102235888454881850738/jotform.xml).  

    Is there a way to make the background something other than white, or better yet, tansparent?  See my page for what I mean.  You'll see the white background; but when you click 1 or 2 stars, the form covers up the white.  I'd like the white to better match the colors of the page.

    I look forward to your replies.  Thank You!

    Hi Tellmemore,

    Here are the steps to make your form transparent:

    1) Open your form in edit mode,
    2) On the top toolbar Click on "Form Style" Tab
    3) Click on Background
    4) Write "transparent" (without the quotes) in the text box
    5) Click OK
    6) Save your form


     

    Hope this helps.

    In addition to Rodjit, after making your form background to transparent you may inject the following CSS code to your form:

     

    body, html {

    background-color: transparent !important;

    }

    Follow this guide: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you!

    Thank you for your reply!
    Well, I entered the text you provided, but all it does is increase the
    amount of white around my form. Any other suggestions? And, what is "
    Rodjit"?
    I look forward to your reply. Thank You!

    You can try my suggestion above. Please Inject this CSS codes (updated one) to your form:

    body, html, .form-all {

    background-color: transparent !important;

    }

    This should help. Thank you.

    Well, nothing is working; whatever I input, a white backgr still appears.
    I give up! I'll just have to stick with the unattractive, shocking white
    backgr. If you think of anything else, I'll give it a try.
    Signing off for now; thank you for your help!

    @Tellmemore

    As mentioned by pinoytech, the white background is something to do with google iframe's background. Unfortunately there's no way to edit it. However, to overcome this you may have to re-embed your form using iframe code with google's Embed gadget.

    First, get your form's iframe embed code and include the following CSS code above it before embedding.

    <style>

    body{

    background-color: transparent !important;

    }

    </style>

    Check this screen:

    Let us know if you can't get it working. Thanks!
