Changing form style

  • browser (and version) you're using : FF, latest version
  • URL of the site/page in question: click
  • cforms version: latest one
  • possibly other plugins that might interfere: not sure
  • the actual error message (e.g. use Firebug): no error

My question is if you look on the page the form doesn't look that great, I don't like how the feild names are on the side, I'd like them on top of the textbox, I tried editing the CSS but it's a little confusing, I read the pdf guide, but there's nothing that allows me to change the position of the text (i think).

 When I used firebug, I was able to change it, but fire bug's code is totally different then whats in the css file, I can't just copy the code from firebug and post it in a page. Well, I can but then the form doesn't work.

First off thanks for the detailed info, using Firebug is the way to go. Simply add your changes to the cforms CSS file via the editor.

By the looks of it, you've already incorporated your personal layout.
