CSS preview?
December 7, 2007

Please replace the ??? with your data!

[desc]: I feel rather silly, but something seems weird. I am trying to use Firebug to alter the stylesheet, but seem unable to find a way to preview the form. I even watched your tutorial to see if I was missing somehting, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to preview my changes to the form. I am using Firefox on a new Mac. So, is there a preview button that i am missing?

Thanks for your help. _

When you use Firebug to alter your cforms CSS you should see your changes instantly – that's the beauty of Firebug. Unless you're applying your changes in the wrong place.

Also, when you're done, make sure to properly copy the entire and modified CSS information from Firebug to the cforms CSS editor, then hit save/update.

The webcast shows this as the last important step, because otherwise all your temporary Firebug changes will be lost.


RE: the preview image (on the Styling admin page)

The preview is really a static preview. For the CSS themes delivered with cforms, I have included a image/snapshot. You can do that yourself of course, just make sure you keep the file name notation (CSS-theme-file-name.jpg) and the image size (300x228px).

All files are in contactforms/styling.
