[resolved] Custom CSS Styling on Gravity Form

  1. David
    Member

    HI,
    I'm a CSS novice. Can someone help me understand how to customise the CSS styling for a gravity form? For example, how do I change the look and feel of my form to match the look and feel of the WP login screen?

    My Form
    http://www.displayme.net/test-form-styling

    WP Login Form
    http://www.displayme.net/wp-login.php?

    Things I want to achieve:
    Change font to match WP Login Form (font, font size, font colour).
    Make form shape to match (rounded rectangle, shadowed).
    Make submit button to match (blue login button)
    Make field style to match (1px outline, not 3D outline )

    Ideally, it would be great to end up with a chunk of CSS that I can add to custom.css and it applies this styling to every gravity form on my site.

    Thankyou

  2. Hey David. Carl told me you were having some issues with the CSS stuff, so I'll be happy to take a look at it. Give me a little bit and I'll get back to you on it.

  4. David, I grabbed a bunch of the styles directly from the WordPress login form, tweaked them a bit and applied them to a test form. This is the result.

    It's pretty close.. there are some other content styles that you don't see in the original form, so I just ran with something that followed the overall look and feel. I tried to keep things as generic as possible, but can't guarantee that you won't have to tweak this a little on a per-form basis or that there might not be some unforeseen conflicts coming from your theme css. It should get you really close though.

    You can grab the CSS here. Just copy it and append it to the end of your theme style sheet or custom.css file.

    Also, you'll want to download this button background image and put it in your theme folder, then adjust the path accordingly in the CSS.

    Hope that helps you out. Good luck with it.

    Ok. Gravity just went from great, to unbelievably killer.
    That is the complete bizness! Incredible support.
    Thankyou. I'm spreading the word.

    Is there a gravity doc somewhere that describes the css that controls:
    1) the spacing between Fields
    2) the spacing between a Form Title and the Field label
    3) Form label height
    etc

    I want to adjust the height of a form / the spacing of elements in a form.

  7. Hey David, I'm pleased to hear that you're happy with the changes. Here's a visual CSS guide I put together a while back that should help get you familiar with the general form layout, classes, etc.

    Hope that helps.
