changing the width of forms

  1. Hi, I would like to reduce the width of my form so it fits in the side panel. I am very new to wordpress and do not understand code used in the forum. I have tried for the last hour and got no where. Please help!
    Im using a wootheme and I have found a box that says Custom CSS Code. Do I type code in their?
    My URL:
    Also can I change the background colour of the form?

  2. It looks like the form fits in the sidebar to me. The one field which does not appear to fit is the reCAPTCHA field. The size of the reCAPTCHA is fixed, so in a sidebar you might want to remove it, or use the Really Simple CAPTCHA instead.

    After installing that plugin, you can choose that type of CAPTCHA rather than reCAPTCHA. Really Simple CAPTCHA will fit better in your sidebar.

    If you want help resizing any of the other fields, please tell us which ones.

    To change the background color of the sidebar form, add this to the box you found which says "Custom CSS Code":

    #sidebar .gform_wrapper {
        background-color: red;
