    How to change the background of a form?

    Asked by InnovStreet on March 26, 2016 at 07:37 PM


    I'm currently trying to create my form, so I have decided to add a custom background.

    However, it doesn't appeared on the form, it's only displayed in blank first. So I decided, to go back to the builder, 

    and now when I try to have the "Apercu " , I only got "Form not found, this form is disable".

    And even if I delete the custom background and use a default one it is still the same issue.

    So what can I do to fix it ?


    Thanks by advance

    Your concern about your form disabled has been moved to this thread: https://www.jotform.com/answers/803489/

    Now, to change the background of your form you may use this CSS code to change only the color: 

    .supernova .form-all, .form-all{

    background-color: #FFFFFF;


    If you want to use an image you should use this CSS code: 

    .supernova .form-all, .form-all{

    background-image: url("URL OF IMAGE");

        background-position: right bottom;

        background-repeat: no-repeat;


    This guide will help you to inject the CSS code: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes.

    Hope this helps.
