    Transparent background doesn't work

    Asked by auyara on October 07, 2013 at 02:19 AM



    I'm trying to use my form with transparent background in a google site but i can't. Form is transparent in jotform site but when I put it on my site the background is white. I already tried to use iframe and gadget for google sites. I put a google gadget only for teste and transparency worked with it.

    Here is my site:

    To make the form's background transparent please go through this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/87-How-to-Make-the-Background-of-a-Form-Transparent

    On checking your form this is what I get instead, check out the userguide in the article provided above and do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Yes, I can see that the form is already transparent. The problem is on the google side. The iframe container where the form is placed has a white background.

    Try the following workaround.

    First, re-embed your form using Embed Gadget:


    1. Go to your Google Site.

    2. Switch to Edit mode.

    3. Click "Insert Menu" and select "More gadgets" at the bottom.

    4. Select "Embed Gadget".

    5. On the embed gadget box, paste this CSS code.

    <style>body{background-color: transparent !important;}</style>

    6. Under the CSS code, put your form's iFrame embed code. Adjust gadget width and height according to your preference, then press OK.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!
