To help you understand the current (v4.5 and up) layout and CSS better, I quickly put together a cforms CSS guide: Download (PDF ~230KB)

Thanks for the guide.

Is there any way to select different styles for different forms within a site or does one selected style apply to all forms?

I'd like to be able to publish a simple contact form in my sidebar using the sidebar style, but publish a more complicated signup form on a static page using a wider format.

the download link points to a SWF file and you'd need a SWF player to play the clip.

Hi Oliver!

I need the same functionality than Mack: a way to give their own styleing to each new form I create with cForms. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks for a great work. Congrats!

Hello:

I also need the same functionality as Mack and Oliver.  Is there a way to do this?  I would really love to hear how or be pointed to where I can find out how.  Thank you so very much!

It would be really nice if someone would finally reply to the question of different styling for different forms. Lots of people need this functionality.

Thanks.

Hi guys,

I need the same functionality. I want to make a sidebar widget, but the current styling doesn't allow me to insert the form because it's too wide.

Thanks,

Mihnea

In order to get the form to fit in the sidebar all you have to do is select "Styling" which is just below "Global Settings", then go to "Select a form style", then select "sidebar-layout.css" from the dropdown menu.

I didn't need to refresh and the form snapped right in place!

Hope this helps!

I like many others need to have multiple forms with multiple different CSS styles.

It seems like it would be nature that different forms would be able to have different styling.  For instance if I wanted a samll contact from in the sidebar, and then a multi-page form on a page.

Oliver, you need to embed the SWF in an html <object> tag.

To all wanting to add separate styling to individual forms, here's how you could go about it:

Simply wrap your form in a div with a specific class or ID. Then you can target your forms within this div.

For example, if you wanted a form in your footer, wrap the cform in <div id="footer-form">. Then in your css, simply place #footer-form in front of the property you are styling.

Like so : #footer-form .cform { width: 300px; }

Then again, your forms might already be within separate parent divs, so you wouldn't need to wrap them in anything extra.

Hope this makes sense & helps.

Hey thanx Matt. The footer example gave me some great ideas for customization. This is perfect for Thesis theme.

Hello

 

Love CForms great plugin thanks for sharing it.

 

Wondering, like others, if theres any options in CForms CPanel for designating different styles for different forms?

 

For example having a thing form on sidebar but a wider form (thats a seperate cform altogether) on a page?

 

Many thanks,

z

Not to sound too disrespectful, but how is it that you can only select one style for all your forms????!!!  As the author of this otherwise great plug-in, why would you make it like that?  That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Well Michael, I'm a bit confused about all those question marks and exclamation marks.

Do the question marks indicate that you don't know what you're talking about? Or are they misleading, and in fact you do know what you're talking about, explicitly expressed by the following exclamation marks.

But then you ask the question about why its the way it is, which eludes to the point you indeed have no idea – just to finally refute yourself by insinuating that it wouldn't make any sense….

WOW, this is one loaded post…

 

PS. while I need to think about what you said…why not read the FAQs or search the forum a bit as it has been asked oh so many times before.

 

Paul.
