My form looks odd.

What can I do to make it look better?

Thanks for your help!

The biggest issue is that your form is not the same size as the place where you've placed it (either because of the way it was configured or because of the CSS code in your web site template). If you can get the form to stretch to the entire width of where you've placed it, the fields will no longer wrap and it will look much better.

Thank you, Nick.

How do I get the form to be the same size to where I am placing it?

Thanks!

After further investigation, the code in the admin panel that we have provided is correct, but the actual code as I am seeing it on your site is significantly different and screwing things up. This is probably being done by whatever software you are building your site with, although it is unclear. Several keys examples:

In our code, there are several instances that show this:

Code:
width="100%"


On your site, it appears like this, squishing the width of the form:

Code:
style="width: 100%px;


On your site you have a lot of 'non breaking space' tags which is stretching the form vertically. These are not in the code we have provided:

Code:
 


It is critical that you make sure that the code gets embedded exactly as we have provided in order to ensure proper formatting.
