    Background color that was added through Form Designer is missing when embedding using Source Codes method

    Asked by emilevdende on November 03, 2014 at 09:52 AM



    Just had a chat session with Welvin about the embed feature for forms. It appears, and Welvin confirmed that, that this feature does not produce the correct source code to embed a form into your own HTML.

    Some design elements are not taken into account, for example the forms background (set with the new form designer).

    Can you please take a look at this and fix it?

    Hi Emile,

    Thank you for posting it here. A ticket has been created and submitted to our developers. We'll update you here once we have a permanent fix for this matter.

    For now, you can add the following custom CSS codes to correct the background and center the form:

    .form-all {

    margin: 0 auto !important;


    body {

    background: #10AAE2 !important;


    Here's how to inject these codes to your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
