How do I add text or images to my sign up form?

Sometimes we hear customers request to add content above or below the submit button to state their privacy policy (e.g. "We won't share your information) or to link to a disclaimer. Luckily, adding text, links, or even images to any part of your form is easily done!

Adding text and hyperlinks

When you create a new form, a header and footer are included by default. Simply click on the tab to the left of the area in question in order to edit it. In the popup that appears, just type in your text, then click the Save button when you are done.

Click the header button

If you would like to add a new text area (or you are editing a form from which you have deleted the header or footer and would like to add those again), simply use the buttons along the top of the form editor. A Header will appear at the top of the form, a Footer at the bottom, and a Text area can be dragged to any position in the form once added.

Add text/footer buttons

You can easily make clickable links in these text areas. When editing one of them, just highlight the text that you would like to become a link, then click the button that looks like a chain link in the toolbar of the popup.

Highlight the text you want to hyperlink

In the new window that appears, enter the full URL (including http://) of the page you would like the link to be connected to, select whether you would like the link to open in the same window or a new one, and give the link a title, which will appear if someone hovers their mouse over the link before clicking it, like a tooltip. When you're done, click the "Insert" button.

Click Insert

Adding images

If you would like to add an image to your form, the image does need to be hosted somewhere online. To add it to your form, first get the URL of the image by visiting the page the image is on, right click on the image, and choose "Copy Image URL" from the menu that appears (the text for copying the image URL will vary depending on your browser, for example a browser such as Google Chrome may have "Copy Image URL").

Using a hosted image URL

In the web form editor, just click the "Image" button from the toolbar at the top of the page.

Click Image in the editor

Finally, from the image box that appears paste the URL of the image into the URL field. You can also select an image from your Image Gallery. Then, set the position of the form to either be Left, Center or Right aligned. Once you are complete, click the "Save" button.

Enter your hosted URL and save

Once your image is inserted you can then move it by clicking on it and dragging it to the area of the form that you want it to appear in.

Adding images to your sign up form header/body/footer

In addition to adding images through the "Image" button, you can also add images into the background of the header, body, or footer of your form. Just like with inserting an image through the image button, make sure you get the URL for the image that you wish to insert.

Once you have your image URL, open the form you are trying to insert the image into. Once the form is open select either Header, Body, or Footer from the drop down menu on the left side of the sign up form generator. In this example, we are selecting the header to add the image into.

Select header/body/footer

Next, on the right side of the form, click on the "Advanced Options" tab that appears.

Click Advanced Options

A menu will appear where you can insert a background image for the header/body/footer. Take the image URL that you had copied and paste it into that area. You can also choose from your Image Gallery.

Copy and past your image URL

Now that image will be placed into the background of the header of your form. However, the image might not be placed the way that you want, such as in the example below.

To adjust the placement of the image you placed in the background you will want to utilize the first drop down within that "Advanced Options" menu.

So for this example we are choosing to align the image "Bottom Center."

However, now you may notice from the above screenshot that the image is still not quite where we want it. This is where adjusting the padding for the form comes in handy. Adjusting the padding can help to change the placement of your header image. We suggest playing around with changing the padding numbers to get your image where you want it placed.

Note: If you want to change either of the two numbers for horizontal or vertical padding independently of each other, just click the chain link icon between the two numbers.

Changing the image padding

For this example, we unlinked the numbers for the vertical padding from each other by clicking on the chain link and then we adjusted the padding until the image moved below the text.

Now the image is exactly where we wanted it to appear. Make sure that you click the "Save Your Form" button when you are done making any of these changes in order to save your work!
