    Can you please change the background of my form? (no, it's not that simple)

    Asked by prothermex on October 06, 2011 at 02:24 AM

    Hi there,

    Background on this form  http://form.jotform.com/form/12765432588

    is not the same as on this form: http://form.jotform.com/form/12771945543.

    I would like all of my forms to have this background>>>  (http://www.jotform.com/images/brushed.png) instead of that white colour.

    I don't think I can change it in my setttings. I was also unable to edit your source code.

    Please, advise.

    Thank you for all your help!
