Support » Theme: Celestial - Lite » Using contact-form 7, field lengths are ignored only in this theme

  • Resolved dshafer


    I have been using Contact-Form 7 for a long time on dozens of sites without a hitch. Today, I installed a form on a new site I’m building using the Celestial Lite theme. All of the text fields are ignoring their size and max-length settings and displaying at (apparently) default size.

    I’ve confirmed the same form works on multiple other themes.

    Is this something that can be easily fixed or do I have to change themes?

    This is urgent; my client is getting impatient! (Aren’t they all?) I’d appreciate a quick yes/no or some advice.

    Based on your previous topic, I’d guess that this is just a CSS issue.

    I agree. But I have scoured the style.css file and can find nothing that should affect this object. I’ve also used Firebug to try to isolate the problem but, again, to no avail. All of the class/id refs contact-form 7 puts into place appear to refer to stylesheets on their site and they are all but indecipherable.

    You can re-use those classes in your theme’s CSS.

    The bootstrap form styling that I incorporated is doing this but there is a way to override the width with css. Basically it can be done with adding a width to the element like:


    Or it can be done as an in-line style on the form element.

    But perhaps provide me with a link to your page and I can quickly provide the override css for you. Contact me directly from my website’s contact page

    I have to say Andre’s off-forum support was incredible. He pointed out how to fix what was wrong and then churned out a bunch of code fixes for me so the theme worked as I wanted.

    Can’t say enough good things about his responsiveness and helpfulness!
