Support » Plugin: Formidable Forms - Form Builder for WordPress » Form does not render as expected

  • Resolved llriggs


    Form renders perfectly on test site. When I went to set up the form in the same way on live site (different server), it does not render the way I’d set it up. The first 2 fields (first name, last name) and the next 2 fields (email address, website) are supposed to be on the same rows, then the Subject field is supposed to take up only the left half of the area (or something like 40 with 50 characters max) and the textarea was to be the full width of the form and 8 rows.

    Well. Each field is on its own line, textbox takes up the full width of the form. I have it set to use the Formidable styles, it should be using the CSS classes within Formidable.

    The theme was created by someone else, an Artisteer generated theme. I’m not sure if that’s part of the problem. Any ideas?

    This sounds like a theme conflict. In other words, your theme probably has some styling in place for form elements that is overriding the formidable styling. The easiest way to figure out what’s going on is to use your browsers developer tools to see what CSS is being loaded/used by each element.

    If you would like to post in our help desk with a link to your form, we can probably take a quick look to see what’s going on.

    I’m having similar trouble.

    What I’m seeing it extra
    tags after the field label, required *, and field so the form is spread out too much vertically.

    I removed the entire form styling section of the themes CSS file, but that had no effect.

    I can’t find any
    tag in the formidable CSS either.

    Any suggestions?


    By the way, the link is

    Thanks for your help. I love both the Pro and Free versions!

    Your form is getting filtered twice which is causing extra
    and <p> tags to get inserted into your form. for a fixSee #3 here:

    If those [raw] tags don’t resolve the problem for you, let me know and we should be able to resolve it with some custom CSS.

    That worked.

    Thank you very much for a great plugin and excellent support!
