Overwrite Bootstrap css for the submit button in Pardot

Updated: Nov 18, 2019

In a previous post I showed you how to use Boostrap css to create horizontal forms. I will also be writing a post on how to use Bootstrap to create multicolumn forms.

However, if I was creating a form and wanted to use this template, but also wanted a red button, I would theoretically have to clone the template, update the class for the button and then use the new template for the new form.


Or, I can overwrite the bootstrap css in the Above the Form section of the form.


Navigate to the Look and Feel section of the form:


In the Above the Form section, flip over to the HTML editor:


Here you can add css that overwrites the bootstrap css:


Here is the original form followed by the form with the css overwrite:
