    I changed the background of my header but the color does not reach right side

    Asked by jmuskus on September 12, 2014 at 02:09 PM

    Comment 1:


    I entered the code above to remove the red background of the error message but it doesn't seem to have worked, this is the current code entered in the custom css box:

    .font--face {
    font-family: 'Carrois Gothic';
    font-size: 16px;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: 400;src: local('Carrois Gothic'),
    url(http://fonts.gstatic.com/s/carroisgothic/v4/GCgb7bssGpwp7V5ynxmWy2IHn70NeZKJ0uStDo7Dza8.woff) format('woff');
    }.form-all {
    font-family: 'Carrois Gothic';
    font-size: 16px;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: 400;
    .form-required {
    color: black !important;
    .form-line-error {
    background:none repeat scroll 0 0;

    Thanks in advance!

    If I want to add custom CSS to my thank you page do i need to enter it into the HTML part of the editor, am just learning CSS so if you could give me an example of how I can do this that would be great, thanks!


    Comment 3:

    Me again! I changed the background of my header but the color does not reach right across the width of the form meaning the background color of the form also makes up part of the header... Can you help?

    Thanks for writing. I think this is the form you're referring to:


    Here's a link on how to inject CSS into your forms:


    As for the color not reaching the right side, it appears that it does. It reaches all the way to the right width of the form. If you'd like it to be wider, then you can adjust the form width.


    Adjust form width:

    As for adjusting the color of the error text, here is a very thorough explanation:


    Here is a simpler explanation, which might be easier to follow:


    Please let us know if you're able to work through those and make the adjustments, or if you need further assistance.

    Kind Regards

    Thanks so much. Regarding comment 2, I am not sure how to specifically target the thank you page so i can enter the custom CSS? And regarding comment 3, I realised I didn't explain myself properly. The header bar seems to be shifted over to the right and keeps on going off the side of the form, also meaning that there is no gap between the left edge of the header bar and the header text which doesn't look very good. I have made the form background yellow so if you preview the form you will immediately see what i mean! Thanks!
