    Form Background: How to set an image as background - HTML

    Asked by EduardoMendez on January 13, 2013 at 11:52 AM

    Please inject the following CSS code on your form:

    Just edit the text in red with the correct URL for the image that you intent to use as a background.

    html { background: url(https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/9199_water_bg.jpg) repeat fixed; }

    Once you have inserted the CSS code, please make sure to set your background to transparent (Here is a guide if you need detailed instructions on how to set the form's background as transparent).

    Click OK and make sure to save the form.
