“Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

We’ve all heard this classic piece of advice, but sometimes looks truly are everything. When people land on your website, they’ll be less inclined to fill out your contact form if it doesn’t look branded and professional.

To help you create better, more beautiful online forms for your business, Formstack is releasing a new and improved Theme Editor this week. With two new theme templates and three new editing capabilities, our Themes Editor will make it easy to quickly tweak the colors, fonts, and spacing of your themes to create the professional, branded forms you need. You’ll no longer have to mess with the complications of CSS to get the exact look you want!

A Clean, User-Friendly Interface

Our updated interface will let you quickly create, edit, and organize themes for your online forms. Handy tags will show you which themes are set to active and default and how many forms are using each theme.

Formstack's Improved Theme Editor

Endless Editing and Customization

Three new editing capabilities open up a world of possibilities for form design. Quickly tweak the colors, fonts, and spacing of your forms with the Quick Styles tool. Advanced Styles lets you dig deeper into your form’s look with customization for fields, sections, and button and slider colors. If you’re a CSS junkie, use the Code Editor to easily edit the CSS and HTML codes of your form. And finally, an improved live form preview lets you view your edits as you make them so you can experiment to create the perfect theme.


Two New Professional Theme Templates 

Creating a form theme will be a whole lot easier if you have some help. Use one of our new theme templates as the basis for your form’s new look. Formstack Light is great for brands looking for a form with lighter colors. If you’re looking for a darker palette, try Formstack Dark. These form templates were built to look good on almost any business website, and they serve as a great starting point for editing theme elements just to your liking.


Changes to Note 

Our new Theme Editor will be available to all Formstack customers within the next week. Access to the Themes Editor will only be available on the Themes tab of your forms. You will no longer be able to reach your Themes through the user account area.

In addition, we are retiring our old default themes. Any themes that you haven’t previously used will be removed from your account. However, if you have used any of our default themes, you will still be able to access and edit them within the new Theme Editor.
