    Thanks for contacting us.

    Is this your form https://www.jotform.com/33234177095354? I can see that you already gave a background color to the Thank you message: 

    Now, if you want to apply the background to all the page availble at the time of seeing the Thank you message in real time, let me tell you that's not possible, you can only apply the backgound color to the spage used by the text only: 

    What you can do is to create a web page on your site with the same background color and then set that as your Thank You URL

    I hope this helps, please let us know if you need further assistance with this or kindly open a new thread to post unrelated issues.

    Try if the following workaround works.

    margin-top: -17px;

    margin-left: -8px;

    margin-right: -38px !important;

    width: 100%;

    height: 800px;

    background-color: #ffd75f;

    text-align: center;

    overflow: hidden !important;

    position: absolute;

    Place this on the div under style tag that holds the thank you message.


    I am not sure yet how to removed the vertical scrollbar, I will let you know if I found any. Thank you so much!
