Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » After EVERY Update the form looks different!!!!

  • Sorry, but that sucks!
    After every CF7 update my forms looks different!
    The field-width is different. The check-boxes are located somewhere else.
    The email and telephone fields are smaller than other fields.

    I can not change every time (after updates) the code for hours to get the look I want

    No! It doesn’t work. The email, phone and textarea fields have not the same look with your documentation.

    These is a common misconception that the CF7 plugin controls the appearance of CF7 forms though the plugins CSS style sheets. In truth the Contact Form 7 plugin uses only very minimal CSS styling to allow CF7 forms to blend in with most websites.

    The actual look of CF7 forms on your website will depend largely on the current WordPress theme used and the CSS styling that theme applies to standard HTML form elements.

    See Styling Contact Form for a general explanation of styling CF7 forms using CSS.

    There is a link at the bottom of the page to a comprehensive and detailed article on Styling Contact Form 7 Forms. The article shows people, with suitable HTML & CSS skills, how to change the appearance of their Contact Form 7 Forms to meet their particular requirements.

    Or you could change your theme if forms are a big part of your site. We always check if a theme supports most of the standard HTML form elements before using it.
