    Hello, please allow me some time in figuring out what CSS codes to inject to use an image as a background on your form tabs :)

    Thanks, just to confirm we're on the same page, you want that image right here, correct?

    I noticed the form was heavily customized with lots of CSS and this is what you had for the form tab itself when I cloned it:

    #tabs-list .current {

        color : #000000 !important;

        border-radius : 4px !important;

        border : 4px solid #9C9C9C !important;

        background : #ffffff !important;

        z-index : -5;

        position : absolute;

        top : 10px;

        left : 5px;

    }

    After making changes, here's the new CSS code (just replace the chunk above with this one):

    #tabs-list .current {

        color : #000000 !important;

        border-radius : 4px !important;

        border : 4px solid #9C9C9C !important;

        background : url(https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/Jim_R/38055_formtabs_small.jpg) no-repeat left #ffffff !important; /* for the bg image */

        z-index : -5;

        position : absolute;

        padding: 5px 5px 5px 50px; /* needed to be adjusted to make the image look nice inside */

    }

    Highlighted in red were the things I removed, green would be the ones modified/added.

    RESULT:

    BTW, the image was quite big so I had to make it smaller and re-uploaded it. Feel free to use the link that I used on my sample CSS codes :)

     

    Hope this helped.
