Support » Plugin: EWZ-Rating » upload form very different than judging

  • Trying to set up the judging for our art show. The format of the judging form is very different from the entry form. The columns seems to be centered and the multi-line long text fields are too wide. I show here the entry form…columns and fields are appropriately sized and placed on the form:

    Here is the judging form, which is virtually unuseable. It appears that the “Description” field is not displayed the same as on the entry form, so it’s length pushes everything to the right.

    I show here the Title and Description fields on the EZW Layout record that is used for both the entry form and the jurying form:

    Can you suggest what I am doing wrong or suggest what CSS overrides I could do? I didn’t have this problem initially. It started either after an update or after I increased the size of the description field…I’m not sure which.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    The layout of this form is an html table. An html table column will always be as wide as the widest cell in it. In this case, you have one Title/Description entry with a single word that is extremely long. That word is setting the width for the entire column.

    If this is legitimate data, about the only thing you can do is use a plugin that allows an admin to log in as another user (eg User Switching), and edit the word to add some spaces. Eventually, I would like to enable such editing by an admin within entrywizard, but have not had time yet.

    If Title and Description are separate fields, you may want to append the shorter Title field to the image, leaving the more flexible multi-line Description in its own column. That would force the image column to the width of the longest title.

    Thank you very much…I can understand what you are saying. That was a test entry by one of my testers…wouldn’t happen that way for real entries, I don’t think. I put some spaces in, and it helped a lot. Then, I put all the text fields in one column because they are not taller than the image. The column was still kind of wide. I added this to my CSS and it seems to work really well:

    .ewz_rtable td {
    text-align: left !important;
    max-width: 350px;

    I thought that was probably it. So long as you are dealing with English, I don’t think its likely to be an issue in the real world.

    Was there something else forcing the column to be so wide? Or did you just have a wide browser window?

    If the css works for you, that’s great. Just be sure to check it on different monitors with different pixel densities.
