    I'm having issues customizing my form!

    Asked by JAAstudios on April 26, 2015 at 07:29 PM

    Hello, I'm working on redesigning my form (because I'm in the middle of redesigning my website).  I have it how I want it and everything is perfect except my text boxes now have this odd black shading at the top of each box, and I'm not sure how to get rid of it.  I'm providing a link to the form to show you an example. Thanks so much!

    The Theme template you had used have that block border on top. This is the reason the textboxes appear like that.

    If I am not mistaken the correct style should have been like this.


    To achieve this, please inject this CSS code into your form http://www.jotform.co/form/33596919347874


    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-upload, .form-dropdown, .form-matrix-column-headers, .form-matrix-row-headers, .form-matrix-values {

      background: none;



    You can check my version of the form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/51158233172954

    Hope this help. Let us know if this did not resolve the issue.
