    Form Background

    Asked by cherrington on December 11, 2013 at 01:24 PM


    I updated the form background in the template designer but default is still showing.  Any help you can offer would be awesome.

    Here is the link.


    Thank You!

    Hi Christine,

    In the form's injected CSS, the first declaration (background: #006666;) in the first rule (shown below)

    .form-all {
    background: #006666;
    border: 1px solid #00cc99;
    border-radius: 5px;
    color: white !important;

    is overriding the white (#FFFFFF) background set in the template designer. This is due to the way the cascade in CSS works. Once that declaration is removed from the rule, the form's background will change to white.

    Do let us know if you would like further help with this or anything else JotForm related.
