line breaks and text labels

Just downloaded v5 and it is a great plugin. The only problem I am having currently is that the text on the labels breaks kinda strangely.

So instead of:

Send me information on:

[ text field here ]

 

I get:

Send me

information on:

[ text field here ]

 

Any tips or know-how on this issue?

What your URL? Hard to tell without looking at it…

It may have to do with the width of the labels.

Sandra, I can't see the form at the URL provided.

Also, have you looked at these resources, they provide all the information you usually need to tweak your layout / look and feel.

Hi Oliver,

You can't see the form because after spending at least 2 hours editing it, when I tried to copy and paste it per the "video" you made (very cool, by the way), I found that Word Press would not allow me to edit the .css file!

Not only did WP not let me edit, but apparently my attempt to edit the .css file caused a fatal error and the plug-in was deleted from my blog entirely! I re-installed cForms with the latest version and the same thing happened again.

Any idea why this could be happening?

Not being able to edit or save a modified CSS theme file could have to do with improper file permissions. You might want to check those and make sure the file is writable by the web server.

Alternatively, you can of course copy & paste the CSS code off-line into the cforms.css file and simply upload it to styling/ directory.

However, I can't imagine how WP or your web hosting company would be able to remove the plugin completely just because you tried to change a file….this sounds very odd.

Okay. I figured out why I was crashing Word Press. It's because instead of trying to edit the .css file within cForms, I was trying to edit using the plug-in editor.

Now that I've realized my error, I was not only able to save my changes, but I also did what I consider to be a not-half-bad job of editing the default style. (Thanks to your presentation! Cool

Thank you so much for this wonderful software and for all your help, Oliver!
