Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » Why is Subject Box So Big?

  • Resolved heiditgtl



    Could you kindly help me understand how to make the size of my subject box smaller? I only allow 50 characters, but the box width on the page is much wider than that.

    Thank you so very much for your help!

  • This is likely due to styling included in your current WP theme or one of the plugins you are using.

    See Styling Contact Form – there is a link to an article I wrote at the bottom of that page (which is recommended by the CF7 plugin author, though I’m not allowed to link directly to it here), that covers this topic in detail.

    Abbreviated Version

    1. You need basic HTML & CSS skills
    2. You need to know how to use Chrome Dev Tools or equivalent
    3. Use Dev Tools to examine the CSS styling applied to your form in detail
    4. Determine what CSS changes you need to make
    5. Add custom CSS via WP Customizer > Custom CSS, custom CSS plugin or child theme.

    Thank you for the response. Updating my theme magically fixed this, so I guess I don;t need to dig deeper. Thanks again!
