    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.

    Already tried this. The form is transparent in jotform preview but background is white on my google site. Already tried these CSS codes too:

    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!
