1.6rc1 formatting bug

    It seems that the latest version is breaking all <hr /> tags placed below a form regardless of theme.

    they appear as a short line "float right" above the form.

    and nothing looks out of place via firebug

  2. I'm unable to replicate the problem.

    Have you added any custom HTML to your form? How about a link to your form page so we can check it out? I'll be happy to take a look and see what I can find out.

  5. Conclusion: Not A Bug

    Your issue is happening because a float property that has been added to your forms.css file that doesn't belong there. There shouldn't be a "float:left" property on the .gform_wrapper class

    Your CSS: http://bit.ly/paofnF

    The default forms.css file that's packaged with the 1.6 release candidate doesn't have this so it must have been added on your end.

    If you remove the float property from your forms.css file, then you'll see that your issue goes away. This wasn't an issue with this release, but an issue caused by a customization.

    Your page is also full of HTML errors which could cause potential display problems. You might want to check the HTML validator to help you identify and correct these problems.

    Kevin:

    Thank you Sir... I just found out that an intern put that css there to try to justify the form to the left.

    I fixed it and adjusted the form myself. As for the html errors... looks like I have some work to do.

    Thanks as always... you guys are the best.

  7. I'm happy I could help out. The float on the wrapper was allowing the following elements to float into what little space there was left to the right of the form wrapper.

    I did notice that the majority of the HTML errors were related to the quote rotator script you have. It looks like it's defining the same element ID over and over so once you tidy that up, you're probably about 85% of the way there with that piece.

    Good luck with that and as always, let us know if you need anything else.
