    Autoresponder HTML email - Changing background color

    Asked by noble51 on February 13, 2013 at 12:47 PM

    I'm wondering if this can be done.

    I've created a html message with a border, thanking them for choosing to attend the golf event.

    In Dreamweaver I gave the background a color (cream color) I ran the html through the MailChimp html to CSS inline styles converter to make sure the css was maintained.

    I pasted that new html into my AUTORESPONDER message using the html button on the toolbar.

    But it looks like Jot Form strips out any ability to add the background color???

    Is it possible to add background color in the autoresponder area.


    SEE autoresponder in my form called: TEST of Texas First Bank Golf


    Thanks in advance

    The Autoresponder editor works just like any other WYSIWYG editor. Are you able to provide a link to page showing the desired background?

    Here's what's currently showing when I cloned your form.



    Here's what is your current HTML version:


    You can always wrap them in a div and add inline styles.
