    How can I use my site's external CCS style sheet to control the form styling of an embedded form?

    Asked by RickMyles on September 24, 2014 at 06:51 AM

    Hi

    How can I use my site's external CCS style sheet to control the form styling of an embedded form?

    The 'Inject Custom CSS' function is a little cramped to work in, to say the least, and it has to be closed and reopened every time to test a new style rule!

    Thank you

    Rick

    Hi Rick,

    If you are not comfortable using the 'Custom CSS' properties you can download the Jotform source and add your own CSS in the folder where the CSS is located. Normally it's located in CSS folder.

    Or we (Jotform team) can help you apply the CSS style in your Jotform. Just let us know so we can help you and inform us what styling you want to apply in your Jotform.

    Thanks for your answer - and offer of help - much appreciated. I am actually fine with CSS but the 'Inject Custom CSS' tiny window, lack of color-coding, deleting of spacing (every time it is closed) and the need for closing before it can be refreshed/tested is all a bit tedious - perhaps a better CSS editor could be considered a feature request?

    I'd prefer not to download the source as it means constantly overwriting again in the website when the form is tweaked - but that is an option if really necessary.

    Thanks for your help again.

    Rick

    Hi,

    We actually have a new theme designer in beta as we speak.  It includes a much better interface for customizing the CSS of your form.  I have personally used it a fair bit and it is very much what you may be looking for.  Unfortunately I can not say when it will be released, but it is a huge upgrade in the ability to customize forms.  Normally I would send a feature request, but this is something that is right around the corner.

    Sounds great! - I look forward to seeing it available when it's ready.

    Keep up the good work!
