How to change pagination button styles

Navigate to Theme → UI Elements → Pagination Buttons to update the style of your Pagination buttons.

The styling options available for your pagination buttons differ between Standard and Guided Mode. To check which mode is enabled on your form, navigate to Theme - the selection will be listed under the heading "Form Experience".

Standard Mode

We offer a variety of pagination button styles for Standard Mode - all of which can be found below:

  • Buttons Only - This option displays a simple arrow button to move between pages.

    A button with curved edges containing an arrow pointing to the right.

  • Buttons Only (with Total Price) - This option is similar to Buttons Only, except the total price of your form will be displayed alongside the arrow.

    A button with curved edges containing an arrow pointing to the right, alongside a label that reads "$10.00" within the same button.

    You can enable this button style with the option "Shows total price in the next page button".

    A toggle option titled "Shows total price in the next page button"

  • Numbers - This option displays a row of numbers between standard arrow pagination buttons to navigate between pages.

    A row of four buttons with curved ends. The two buttons at either end have arrows pointing left and right relative to their position in the row, and the two buttons remaining in the middle have the labels "1" and "2".

  • Progress Bar - This option will display a progress bar between the two standard pagination buttons on your form.

    A row of two buttons, between them is a two-tone bar indicating the respondent's progress in completing the form. The two buttons at the end contain left and right-pointing arrows according to their relative position on the row.

Guided Mode

If your form has Guided Mode enabled, pagination styling is limited to three options. These options are listed below:

  • Include a back button - This will allow a respondent to move back to previous pages.

  • Include progress bar - This will include a progress bar at the top of the screen.

  • Include page numbers - This will display the number of the current page, and how many are left.

Custom CSS

If you have access to an Agency plan account, you have the option to use Custom CSS on your forms. Custom CSS allows you to completely customize the look and feel of your forms, which can be useful for creating pagination buttons that match your specific branding requirements.
