    How do I position my form exactly in my table?

    Asked by aprylprescan on July 17, 2010 at 04:05 PM

    Hi. I am brand new to this, so forgive me for my ignorance, I have an image I created in Photoshop, which I am inserting into a table as the background, and I would like to instert my email sign up form in the exact location on my image where I designated the form to go. How do I manipulate the placement of this form?

    1. Add a "test" string to your page. Put it exactly where you would like the form to show up. Test it and make sure it shows up exactly where you would like the form to go.

    2. Simply replace "test" string with the form code provided on the JotForm Form Builder, "Source Code" (or "Share Form") menu.

    If your page has static height that is going to cause problems. You must make sure your pages can grow when the text or form on the page is large.

    If you still have problems, please post the URL of the page that has the problem.

    Hi there. Thanks for getting back to me. I have been working on this all day, and I finally got the form to go where I needed it to! (Only took me a year to figure out...LOL) Anyway, the last few things I couldn't figure out where the following: (Here is my URL by the way for your reference....my image is sliced and a little off...so don't laugh...we are still in the building process) It's going to be a Facebook fan page.

    Anyway, here are the questions I still have:

    1) I set my background to my form as a transparent .png file I created in photoshop. I added the URL to the transparent background in the form building section where you can set your background. The .png I have it pointing to is 200px x 200px. There is a white line to the left of my sign up form, as you can see from my above link. How do I remove this? Do I need to make my background image bigger?


    2) The 'Submit' button. Is there a way to use my own image for the submit button, and just link it to wherever the default submit button goes? (I was going to whip one up in photoshop that matched my page) If not, is there a way to customize the size and color of the one you provide?

    (Sorry if I missed it in the actual builder)

    1) I do not see a white line on Firefox. It works fine on my browser.

    2) I see that you have already found a solution and using your own image file.

    I m glad you have already resolved these issues. Your page looks great by the way!
