    My background is not visible when viewing form, but is visible in editor

    Asked by jcrowe on February 23, 2016 at 11:21 AM


    I have designed this form and am hoping to use a background via a URL. I have it uploaded on the designer and it appears fine, when I go to view the form in a preview it is not visible.

    You need to add custom CSS for this to work.

    This code should solve your problem.

    .supernova {

    background: url("URL to your image") !important;


    You need to inject Custom css. You can do this by following the guide i uploaded.


    Just replace URL to your image with URL to image you want as background.

    Please let me know if this works for you.


    Best regards.
