When on Marketing Starter, can I style my own custom form to submit to HubSpot?

We are setting up contact us page, using Form. Discovered when exporting and embedding the hubspot script that, as we are on Marketing Starter and not Basic level we cannot customise the styling of the form.

 

Can we  then create our own page, own styling and javascript to submit the form to HubSpot API  ? The forms API looks like it would receive all the data we send, just wondering if there is a permissions thing that would stop us from doing it? 

 

Or is there another solution to customising the form?

 

Many thanks,

Graeme

Turns out if you create form yourself, any level of paid subscription can submit via Forms API. 

 

That was main thing for me to get answer to.

 

Thanks for help all

Hi if you go to https://designers.hubspot.com/docs/cos/hubspot-form-markup#styling-forms

 

You can find all the styling of the form and in your WP CSS style sheet and implement it.

 

Hope it helps

Thanks, we had tried applying that before but it is ignored if we use the export embedded script. Because we don’t have marketing basic, there is no option to export the script without default styling. So we can’t over right the default styling for this method.

 

was wondering if we write our own script and css, and submit the form to the form methods, rather than using the export embedded script from HubSpot form, just basically do it ourselves, whether there is a restriction on the API, that detects if we can use our own css and submit our own form?

Hi Smiley Wink

Can you share the url to have a look? or can you share your embed code ..
