Hi,

My form looks great in www.mycontactform.com in the preview and even when I open it to a window - however when I copy and past the HTML code from My Contact Form.com into the blank page on my website it changes the form....

Any ideas why this is happening or how I can it to look the way I designed it?

Thanks,
Martiel

Please post a link to the form so I can see what the problem is. The most common cause would be a CSS style sheet existing on you current site and reformatting the way the form is displayed.

Hi,

Here is the page where the form is posted on my site, http://sewmantra.indiemade.com/content/returns-exchanges

You'll see that the top row is in one format and the rest is in another, I'd like to make it uniform.

Thanks so much for your help!

As I suspected, your external CSS is formatting the code. If you change the code for the form that says:

From:
Code:
<input id="email" maxlength="100" name="email" size="20">


To:
Code:
<input id="email" maxlength="100" name="email" size="20" type="text">


This should make the formatting consistent.
