CForms in Sidebar - Alignment Problem

Question

Posted · Report post

Hello, I purchased this theme today and am pretty impressed so far. There are a couple small issues I can't figure out though. One specifically... I've added the cforms widget into my sidebar but am having difficulty getting the form to align so that it looks decent. I'm not sure where to go from here because: 1) The text widget below lines up okay. 2) I've looked through the CForms styling CSS and can't find any significant padding or left margin that is causing it. Additionally, when I use the FF web dev plugin to identify the boarder of the form, it makes it appear that it's not CForms that is aligning itself that far out. Please help.If we can get it to move 50 or so pixels to the left, we'd be good shap. Thanks in advance. rvj1I.jpgmanWq.jpg

Hi Andrew - I am having a similar problem - so I don't think it's necessarily a cforms-speicific issue. I also installed a text widget in the sidebar of the blog page ti display an image - and it threw the alignment of the entire sidebar off. Here is my new post on the forum: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic.php?id=376 Thanks in advance for your attention! Barbara

Did you deactivate the default Cforms styling? That might fix the issue. If not, then I'll help you with some custom css.

Thank you for the response. I'm not sure how to deactivate the default Cforms styling. I tried deactivating CSS styling all together and that didn't move it over (which is good, because it wouldn't look as good without the custom styling). Sounds like we may need to go down the custom code route unless you have any other ideas. Thanks again.

sure can you give me a live link with the issue. I'll use firebug to identify the element we need to alter.

ok so here is what you have: ` #content .cform { margin:5px 50px; padding:0 0; } ` to fix, try adding something like this to custom css: ` #content #sidebar .cform { margin:5px 0px; } `
