    My form is transparent and now how can I make it so that when the client fills in the form, the form should stay transparent at all? Thanx.

    Please use this custom CSS code in order to make the text boxes transparent when active.

    .form-textbox:focus, .form-textarea:focus {
    background : transparent !important;
    }

    .form-line-active {
    background : transparent !important;
    }

    Here's a guide on how to inject custom CSS. The result should look like this:

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
