Customize Appearance

The WS Form customize appearance feature allows you to edit the colors, fonts, and other style elements of your form in much the same way you would change the style of your website theme.

Tip: The customize appearance feature only applies if you are using the WS Form framework. To find out what framework you are using, click on the Appearance tab in the Settings administration page.

To access the style editor:

  1. Click on Appearance in the WordPress administration menu.
  2. Click Customize in the sub menu. This will open up the WordPress customization screen.
  3. Click WS Form on the left.

This will start the WS Form customize feature. You will see a preview of a form on the right side and various customize options on the left.
