    Hi guys, can you point me in the right direction.

    I want to change the background colour of one of my forms.

    What do I need to edit to do this.

    I am using Version 1.4.4, and I am ok with CSS design

  2. What background color do you want to change? The form itself or the inputs? If you can post a link to your form, that might help too.

    Hi Kevin,

    The form itself. Just want the form to stand out a little better

  4. this will apply to the form wrapper

    body .gform_wrapper {background:#f00}

    or this to just the actual form element inside the wrapper

    body .gform_wrapper form {background:#f00}

    If you only want to change one form, you would use the form ID - replace the XX with your actual form ID.

    body #gform_wrapper_XX {background:#f00}

    Great thanks.

    Which CSS file am I editing?

  6. I can't tell you for sure. It all depends on your theme and how it's built. Usually, it's style.css in your theme folder. Sometimes it's called layout.css or main.css. Themes like Thesis and Headway have a place in the theme admin to put custom css rules and some theme developers like Woo Themes have a custom.css file where you're supposed to put custom rules.

    If you're not really sure, I'd suggest contacting your theme developer and asking.
