Changing layout of checkboxes (5 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I want to have a 12 item check box choice selection on my form. The only problem I have is that by default, the check boxes and labels appear one after the other, all scrambled together. How can I control the layout of the check boxes so that they appear 6 on the right and 6 on the left in two nicely organized columns?

    The code I used to create my check boxes tag is:

    <p>I am interested in<br />
    [checkbox interests use_label_element "Cell phones" "Wireless Data cards" "VoIP" "Long Distance" "Data Networks" "Voice Services" "SIP trunking" "Routers and Switches" "Cloud Computing" "Hosted Applications" "Saving Money" "Interested in others"]</P>

    thank you for your help in advance!
    Rafa

    Is there really no way of accomplishing this? It seems like a simple feature that most people that use the plugging would need. Anybody?

    Rafa.

    Rafa,

    The answer to your question is found here: http://contactform7.com/2009/11/21/custom-layout-for-checkboxes-and-radio-buttons/

    Look under the section "Rendering checkboxes as a table"

    Good luck,

    JB,
    Thank you so much for your guidance. I went ahead and made that change to the CSS file. However, I can't get the checkboxes to appear 6 on one column and 6 in another. Do you know how I can accomplish this?

    Again, thank you!
    Rafa.

    I just made this change - that's great. But I couldn't figure out how to edit the CSS within WordPress. That's probably just my lack of WP experience.
    Thanks
    Mike
