    How to change my form background?

    Asked by VillagePub on July 07, 2016 at 01:17 PM

    I have changed my form background, it looks fine on the screen, but when I publish it is something different.  I would like to have a transparent background, but it will not let me do this....WHY NOT?

    You need to add this custom CSS code to make the form transparent.

    .supernova { 
    background: transparent !important;

    Here's a guide on how to insert CSS on the form: How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes.

    On your webpage, you'll see the black background because the form is embedded on the container that has a black background. In order to fix that, please add this CSS code on the stylesheet of your website.

    #stacks_in_75911_page7 { 
    background-color: transparent !important;

    Hope that works. Thanks!
