Layout with tables - CSS the only/best way to go?

    I have searched through the support section to find a way to get a table layout with GravityForms but keep on finding the CSS solutions?
    Is this the best/only way to get this done? I am a CSS beginner so find it hard to understand how to and wonder if there isn't an easier way to get a form in a table.

  2. Gravity Forms is built with list items by default, mainly because it's more semantic than using a table. Is there a reason you need to have your form in a table? What are you looking to achieve? I'm sure we can figure something out and give you a hand.

    Well I am basically looking for ways to get a better layout in columns, I was formerly using contactform 7 which made this possible.

    So lets say a table with two columns, left one with personal things to fill in, right column with specific quote things for example.

  5. Gravity Forms includes several "helper" CSS classes we call CSS Ready Classes. They allow you to easily create column style layouts without having to write custom CSS rules. You can find out more about the Ready Classes in the documentation here.

    This should allow you to achieve your column layout without worrying about writing a bunch of custom CSS.
