    I have tried to change the image to a local image but that dose not seem to work either.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Are you still having issues with your background image?
    I've checked your site and I was able to see it.

    If you're still unable to see it, you may need to clear your browser's cache.

    Let us know if the issue persists.
    Thank you.

    Thanks. I switched to using the embed option. I would like to use the full html code so I can get all the seo out of it I can. But whenever I use the code the background image wont work.


    I will switch back to the html now.


    Unless you feel I will still get the search engine results I will need.

    Please try to download the full source code of your form again but using the compressed version.

    This version should include the background image.

    Regarding the SEO you should get the same results by using any other embed method, actually I would advise you to use either the normal embed option or the iframe code since these methods will automatically update your form when it's embedded in your site and you make changes to it and with the full source code you would need to manually copy/paste the source code each time you make changes in your form.
