Beginner Question on Formatting

  1. I would like to add spaces to a tightly cramped form, change headline font colors and some other basics. The only option I can see for formatting is under the "Advanced" tab under "Edit Field" (or Section Break" etc.), where there is a field for "CSS Class Name." The "Ready Class Names" don't have options for formatting color, line spacing, etc. I know a little html but have no idea where to go to make any changes. If you can help, please be very specific in your response.
    Thank you!

  2. Could you provide a link to your form by chance? I can provide you with some selectors to use to get what you are looking to do.

  3. Wonderful! The form is located at http://www.tradelinksystems.com/quote-request/ (it's the "Request Quote" link in the main navigation).

  4. You will want to add these styles to your theme's stylesheet. Also you can use this guide as a reference, and/or chrome dev tools or firebug for firefox.

    You can use this to change the label styles:

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper .gfield_label {
    color: blue;
    }

    The section break headlines are h2 elements. Currently you have a declaration in your theme's stylesheet for h2 styling, which the form is inheriting (as it should):

    [css]
    #content h2 {
    font-size: 20px;
    padding: 0 0 5px 0;
    border-bottom: 1px dotted #BBB;
    }

    If you want to target only the headlines on the form you could use:

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper h2.gsection_title {
    color: blue !important;
    }

    The !important here is used to override the color styling of this:

    [css]
    #content h1, #content h2, #content h3, #content h4, #content h5, #content h6 {
    color: #444;
    font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: none;
    margin: 0 0 5px 0;
    }

    It looks like you have some break tags coming in on some of your fields too:

    You could do this to try to add spacing between the fields:

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper li, .gform_wrapper form li {
    margin: 10px 0 0 20px !important;
    }

    Let me know how this goes for you.
