WP Email Capture
Styling the form (2 posts)

    I am using this plugin (WP Email Capture), and when I insert the simple form into my page, it doesn't show any borders on any of the fields for people to enter information into them. I can still enter information if I click in the right place, but it's next to impossible to figure out where to do that. Here's the page:


    If you notice you see "name", "Email" and "Submit" but there are no borders showing the fields.

    I want to insert the following in order to stylize the form:

    input[type="text"], input[type="password"], input[type="email"] {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    border: 1px solid #000000;
    color: #6B6B6B;
    display: block;
    font: 12px Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    margin-bottom: 20px;
    padding: 8px 10px;
    width: 192px;

    But I can't figure out for the life of me where to enter that information to have it actually apply to the form. Can someone help? This is the last thing I need to fix before I can actually have the site go live.

    Thanks a ton!

    I have styled my [wp_Email_Capture_Form] nicely and will describe how.

    As it says on the "Other Notes" section of the plugin page, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-capture/other_notes/

    you need to edit your theme's style.CSS file.

    Here is what i added to my CSS file to format the email capture form...

    #wp_email_capture_2 label
    text-align: right;
    width: 100px;
    display: block;
    float: left;
    clear: left;
    margin-right: 3px;

    #wp_email_capture_2 input

    Now it looks much nicer. Cheers.
