Forms: Formatting the Results Page

The default form results page can be formatted to complement your website. Formatting applies only to the colors and background image, the actual layout of the page and elements cannot be adjusted. In order to control the colors of your results page, you will need to insert hidden optional form fields to control each element. On this page you will be shown first the elements you can control with hidden form fields, then how to insert them. If you are using a redirect page, you do not need to set these options. 

NOTE: When setting the colors, you will need to specify the color name or code. For additional information, refer to Colors and Backgrounds.
