    How do I change the background of the form color and have it carry over when embedded?

    Asked by inclover on April 25, 2016 at 01:39 PM

    I created this form using a ready-made template. I want the background to be green. It shows that way in the builder, but when I preview, it shows a white box. When  I embed, the form has a white background. Thank you for your help.

    Since your form is embedded using the Javascript code, it is subject to CSS and scripts running in your page.  These can affect the styling and functionality of your form.  To ensure the form looks the same embedded as it does when viewing it alone, embed your form using the iFrame code instead:

    Hello inclover,

    You have set the page background as green but the form-section div of your form is still set as white background. Please inject the following custom css code in your form and that should solve your problem:

    .form-section {

        background: transparent !important;

    }

    The following guide should help you how to inject custom css code in form:  https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
