Custom Styles

  1. Hi

    We are currently developing a site which needs to 100% responsive and display properly on any device. For this to work, we need Paragraph Text fields to scale to 100% of the width of its containers. To do this, I added the following <style></style> code on the page:

    <style>
    .gform_wrapper .top_label textarea.textarea {
    width: 100%;
    }
    </style>

    Link: http://ballito.beautyandspa.co.za/business/cellu-beauty-spa (open the contact form panel)
    Theme: Canvas fro WooThemes.

    The style is being correctly applied but always overriden by GF. How do I fix this and why does this happen?

    To test the scenario, I also embedded the same form on a test page as follows:

    <style>
    .gform_wrapper .top_label textarea.textarea {
    width: 100% !important;
    }
    </style>
    [gravityform id="1" name="Cellu Beauty Spa Contact Form"]

    Link: http://ballito.beautyandspa.co.za/test-3

    This works fine!

    Can you please look into how to resolve the issue.

    Regards.

  2. The textarea was 100% wide in both URLs.

    However, to ensure your custom CSS always 'wins' you might need to get more specific with your selectors. For example:

    [css]
    body .gform_wrapper form .top_label textarea.textarea

    or add the important rule to your style as you have done in your second example:

    [css]
    width: 100% !important;

    Here's a good article on CSS specificity:

  3. Hi Chris

    You know how it is! After posting, I managed to solve the problem by adding the !important rule (so I am impressed you got it right!).

    Works like a charm.

    Thanks for a BBRRIILLIIAANNTT product!

  4. Glad you got that working. !important wins in (almost) every case, but if you can get more specific with your selectors, that will work as well.
