    How do you add the icons next to the form fields.

    How do you add the icons next to the form fields. For example the person icon next to name, and envelope icon next to email.

    You meant something like this 


    Using the new Form Designer, you can add icon/image to the input box(in this case the Textbox field) by going to the CSS designer and inject CSS code like this

    sample CSS

    #input_1 {

        background : transparent url('http://www.yourwebsite.com/icons/name_icon.png') no-repeat 20px center;

        background-size : 20px;


    where #input_1 is the field ID#

    Hope this help. Please tell us if you need further assistance.
