Transparent submission form help

Hi everyone...

Is there anyone whom might be kind enough to tell me how to mod the code generated by my autoresponder for the signup fields background color so they will be transparent?

I would like to use the code in any color lead page background that I design?

The autoresponder is an old cgi one that I had from years ago. I like because I know how to use it and it suites me just fine. I doubt that it is even HTML 5.

Your kind help would be much appreciated.

If you wish to look at it, I can PM it to you. (or email it)

Thank you,
John

    Hi John.

    Try to use rgba for background color style. Example:
    HTML Code:
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
    Let me know if you need further help with this.

    Thanks for the reply...

    What I was really hoping to do was use the html form code in or on top of a picture of scenery, like a beech scene o maybe a big city overview shot or something like that.

    Thank you very much,
    John

      Make a small 15x15px image with photoshop. Select all and fill it black. Then choose opasity around 35%. Then use this image as the background for the form field.

        Thanks much...

        Are you saying, put the 15x15 image on the image I want to place the form with the white background on or edit the form code itself? I guess I could try to figure that out

        Thank you for sharing your valuable time with me.

          If you're wanting the field to be COMPLETELY transparent, then use background-color: transparent;

          If you want it to be translucent, then, as 2WDHost said, an RGBA background color is the easiest way to go (though it won't work in IE8 or lower). The first three numbers can range from 0 to 255, and are the red, green, and blue values. The last number can range from 0.0 to 1.0, with 0.0 being fully transparent, and 1.0 being fully opaque. So, for example, this would be a mostly transparent white:

          background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.2);

    Thanks all that helped. Problem solved.

    I just purchased a WP plugin that you can put in any opt in box code and it will make any box form you choose from it's templates.

    Thanks again,
    John
