    How to make form background transparent

    Asked by VillagePub on July 01, 2016 at 12:09 PM

    I am trying to create a form with a transparent background, I have tried through designer and through preferences.  No matter what I try it will not work.  If I finally get the transparent background and change the font color it changes the background again.  What am I doing wrong?

    Could you try adding the CSS code below to your form and check the results.

    .form-all {

        background: transparent;


    You can find the instruction on how you can inject custom CSS codes to your form on this guide: How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    I hope this helps. If not, could you give us the form you're working on so we may further test/check the issue?

    Thank you.

    I have checked your account and found the form that doesn't have a transparent background. I have created a clone version of it and I added the CSS codes I have mentioned above to the clone version and it worked even I change the font-color of the form after.

    Here's the link to the form where I have applied the changes: https://form.jotform.com/61885377610968


    I hope this helps. If not, please provide us the form you're working on. Also, can you let us know what you would like to happen exactly? Thank you.
