Hi there, no matter if i fix my form in % or a fix width, it always stretches out my right hand side column. I am wanting to put my contact form in there and its only 130 px wide but when i install the code, it makes it about double size.

Please let me know how to fix this so I can put a form in there.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

The most likely problem is not the actual form width, but the width that was specified for the text fields within your form. If the length of the text boxes exceed the width of the form specified, the text boxes will dominate and override the width settings.

Try This:


1. Login to your account
2. Click [edit] and then Form Questions
3. Go to each text box question on your form and click Edit
4. Click Next and then on the second screen change the Width setting to a smaller value.
5. Play around with different widths until you get something that works for your website. You might also consider setting the Layout to Vertical (this saves space).

Hey Nick,

The problem is coming with the email address box, there isnt any place to change the value for that. Is there another way to edit the email box?

thanks,

Chris

Unfortunately there is no way to do this from the control panel. You can however, alter it fairly easily by manually editing the HTML code. Look for the code that says:

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


Enter in different values for the 'size'.
