Ninja Forms
[resolved] Input Field Sizes (5 posts)

    This is so basic, but for some reason I cant change or find where to change the size of the fields. they are all too small. In fact, I cant even find any of the css at all for these forms or where to edit anything.

    This is test site for now and here is specific link to the page with a form in question: http://www.unitewise.com/Wordpress/contact-2/

    If you want, you can also check out this the following link of another form on the site. Its on right side in the sidebar. I am not currently using Ninja Forms for this but suing Formidable. I would like to transition to Ninja Forms across the board if I can figure out how to make them look right and add more customization: http://www.unitewise.com/Wordpress/service-packages/

    Thanks for any help!

    Oh I also wanted to mention that I would like to center these forms. But, when I do that, only the input fields center. The labels dont go with it and it looks terrible and becomes a mess. This plugin advertises its simplicity and customization so I am sure I am missing something.

    It's simple but it does imply you have knowledge when you want to do more complicated stuff. People takes years mastering CSS and while we could add all kinds of markup to do that for you then we would be overriding what theme designers intended for their themes which would be poor form on our part.

    If you really want the power to do what ever you want with your form layout and styles we created an extension just for that: http://wpninjas.com/downloads/layout-styles/

    Otherwise you would just write your own CSS and add it to your themes stylesheet or try something like this: http://wpninjas.com/add-custom-css-to-your-ninja-forms/

    Hope that helps/

    Ill check it out, thanks.

    And I didn't mean any disrespect about it being simple. I know css ok, just not that avid at it. I have done that entire site so far myself and it has a lot to it. I just made that comment because I felt like I might be missing a settings area like I saw with Formidable to simple move things around or center things. Thats all.

    And I just look for less CSS and more simplicity when using plugins... afterall that is why I am using a plugin! :)

    Sorry, I didn't take it in a negative way. I was in a rush to leave my office so I was just trying to get the response out quick. The extension is definitely our answer to make rearranging and styling forms super easy.

    You are right though, there isn't an easy way to style forms apart from writing you own CSS or using thy extension I mentioned. Sorry if that came off defensive. :-)
