.cform custom submit button
August 3, 2010

Hi gang,


I have read through too many posts to count, and downloaded the CSS Styling PDF (awesome resource btw!), however, I am still experiencing an issue with using a custom button within multiple forms.


The site in question is


On the upload page, I have created a custom button that should say "upload," and on the contact form the button should read "submit," which it does.


I thought I found the answer to this on the FAQ page, so I tried the following code, however, no changes.


Contact Form:


.cform input.backbutton,
.cform input.resetbutton,
.cform input.sendbutton    {     
    background:transparent url(../images/grey_block_submit.jpg) no-repeat 0 0;
    font:11px Arial;
    margin: 0px 2px 10px 0px;
    padding: 0;


Upload Form (Added #2 as shown in the FAQ, and changed the image name)


.cform2 input.backbutton,
.cform2 input.resetbutton,
.cform2 input.sendbutton,{     
    background:transparent url(../images/grey_block_upload.jpg) no-repeat 0 0;
    font:11px Arial;
    margin: 0px 2px 10px 0px;
    padding: 0;


Any help is most appreciated, as I have exhausted every resource possible. Thank you in advance!!


Kind Regards,

Bryan J Zimmerman

Bummahs, no button images in cforms? really? I spent hours on this and nothing… Wish I could work with php more. I really love CForms but the designer in me is now searching for an alternative solution. frown

You're following the right approach, perhaps contact a web developer to help out with the last CSS bits…
