Oliver,

The link you posted above does not go to a solution. Your comment form is incredible, but to use it fully, you must be able to use differnet style sheets for different installation of each form. One may be in a sidebar requireing a thin profile, another in a regular post or page.

How can we use different style sheets for different forms?

Thanks a lot!

Never mind Oliver, I found the other thread where this is discussed.

Sure would be a huge update to your plugin if each form could reference its own stylesheet with a button click. The task to complete this does not look terribly hard but it is time consuming to learn and and I like to click and play! Smile

Thanks again!

I understand the benefit of click&play, and believe I've given it some thought, but there is no simple solution for this.

Some CSS may be shared by some of the forms, other CSS may not. There is no rule over thumb or any way to interactively (user driven) influence the application logic to determine what forms owns what CSS (automatically).

Also, there is never a direct form id->style association, hence the CSS declarations can not be hardcoded that way.

This is why the users have to determine the look&feel of the various forms they run on their blog themselves.

Typically the different forms don't change drastically, so the delta that needs to be applied by the user is usually minimal.

Hi Jeff,

Can you please post the link? I share both your admiration for this plugin-- and your frustration… I am trying to style a sidebar plugin form separate from my main contact form and I am finding it more difficult than I expected.

Also, has anyone found a good way to include a sidebar contact form on all pages EXCEPT your main contact page(s)?

Thanks!

-Josh
