    Re styles and formatting. More a suggestion than a question I think...

    Asked by chilton1199 on June 18, 2011 at 05:36 AM

    I would like to be able to have a 'transparent' background, so that my own website format shows through except where the input boxes and labels are.

    If this is already possible, I haven't worked out how to do it!

    Hello MandyT,

    Yes, it is possible with JotForm. Please go to the Setup & Embed tab of your form and click Preferences. Then type the word transparent in the background option and click Close Settings:

    And you're done!
