Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 Style » Bugs & glitches – otherwise good

    First of all, thanks for putting in the hard work for this free plugin. Upon using it, I came upon a number of bugs and glitches which are easy to fix and would further improve this plugin:

    1. Most annoyingly, the plugin adds a top margin of 70px before the email form. The margin seems to be hard-coded (at least I couldn’t find a setting to change it), and even if it wasn’t, it is quite strange that a plugin designed to let the user change their forms to their liking would add further styling that is hard or impossible to change.

    The additional formatting is in frontend.css (in the plugin directory):

    .logged-in div.wpcf7 {
    position: relative;
    margin-top: 70px;
    }

    As a workaround, the additional styling can be defeated by overriding it in the theme’s custom styling section (most themes allow for that), but in my view, that is unnecessary hardship.

    2. Setting the bottom margin for labels doesn’t do anything.

    3. As others have pointed out, this plugin lacks an option to deactivate templates for any particular form – once you’ve selected a template, all you can do is select a different template.

    Workaround: Create an empty template with no additional formatting, and select that one instead.

    Thanks again!

  • Another one in frontend.css:

    .cf7-style input[type=”email”], .cf7-style input[type=”password”], .cf7-style input[type=”search”], .cf7-style input[type=”text”], .cf7-style input[type=”url”], .cf7-style textarea {
    width: 100%;
    }

    This can unnecessarily screw up the layout as well, and the plugin offers not option to undo this. I recommend unsetting this by adding the following to the theme’s custom CSS:

    .cf7-style input[type=”email”], .cf7-style input[type=”password”], .cf7-style input[type=”search”], .cf7-style input[type=”text”], .cf7-style input[type=”url”], .cf7-style textarea {
    width: auto;
    }

    Hey @yosmc,

    Thank you for the suggestions,

    1. Is only applied to a logged-in user, because we added a go to styling button on the top on each form, if there is one active.

    2. As for the second one, we will take this into consideration to remove it in our next small release.

    Best Regards,
    Lehel
