    Why is the background transparency on my jotform not working?

    Asked by ldsplaylists on February 02, 2015 at 10:26 AM

    I have set my background to transparent about 100 times, and it still shows up as white on my website.

    This is a re-post of a comment on Making the Form Background Transparent

    I see that you seem to be having some trouble getting the transparency to work on your jotform.

    I took a look in your account and found that this form has a theme applied to it so that is the reason that your transparency was not working.

    If you take a look at screenshot below with the theme css fully removed you'll notice that the transparency does work.

    However, it was not working for you because of the fact that it was being overridden by the applied theme and it's related css that was injected into your jotform.

    Can you post a way to avoid that - modify the theme or css so the background is transparent?
