how do i change background for opt in box?

by johnryan 8 replies
I just started using aweber and I changed my "submit" button but they have no info on changing the plain box around opt in form to an image. Does anyone know how to do this or have code for this? thanks

    I only use the text blocks for the optin everything else I add on my webpage

    I had the same problem so I no longer use Aweber to add the text I do this in the webpage I have more control over things like the backgrounds etc...

    Code:
     
    <center><form method="post" action="http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_web_form_id" value="########">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_split_id" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="unit" value="LISTNAME">
    <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="http://www.aweber.com/form/thankyou_vo.html" id="########">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_redirect_onlist" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_adtracking" value="TRACKING">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_message" value="1">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_required" value="from">
    <input type="hidden" name="meta_forward_vars" value="0">
    <table background="../images/ImageName.jpg">
    <tr><td colspan=2><center></center></td></tr>
    <tr><td>Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="name" value="" size="20"></td></tr>
    <tr><td>Email:</td><td><input type="text" name="from" value="" size="20"></td></tr>
    <tr><td colspan=2><center></center></td></tr>
    <tr><td align="center" colspan="2"><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"></td></tr>
    </table>
    </form>
    </center>
    Notice the line where I have defined the background of the table...

    Code:
     
    <table background="../images/ImageName.jpg">
    This should work... unfortunately you can't do this with the javascript version...

      Thanks, I'll give the code a try. I don't have much experience w/ html but at least it's just a squeeze page I'm working on.

      I tried the code you supplied but couldn't get it to work.
      <table background="../images/ImageName.jpg">
      I changed the image name to my files name.gif.
      should it read :
      <table background=www.mysitename.com/myimageName.gif>
      I tried several variations but am pretty inexperienced w/html still.
      thanks,
      John

        it should say

        You have to make sure the path is correct, so find the name of the file and if you put the address on your browser, the image should come up. Once it does, just put that address in the code. Also, I see you were missing the quotation marks around the address.

        Let me know if it helps...

          I got it to work but the name optin, email optin and submit button are too high. They should be at the bottom of the box (background).
          Making progress though. thanks

    I want to move the name and email fields down but I don't know how to. I tried page breaks but that didn't work.
