Ok, I'm totally lost with the instruction labels in forms

  1. Kevin Geary

    My theme overrides the deafult CSS for gravity forms so I'm forced to style the entire form by hand. And I'm having trouble getting the "first" "last" description elements to slide under the input fields.

    Notice they float to the right.

    It's driving me nucking futs. Please help.

    And why is my theme overriding ALL of the default styling? I've made sure that "use default styling" is checked in the settings. It does nothing.

  2. The form I'm seeing is formatted properly.


    I don't know about any "use default styling" setting that you're referring to - that's not a Gravity Forms option. If you're seeing that somewhere, its probably in your theme settings or some other non-Gravity Forms plugin setting.

    Gravity Forms are designed to inherit most of the styling from the theme. If your theme is overriding all of the styles and you don't want that, you can remove the form-specific styles from your theme and the forms should roll back to the styles that are defined in the GF style sheet.

    If you need theme-specific styling assistance, you'll probably want to reach out to your theme developer for guidance there.

    I had to add the scripts to functions.php -- that's why you're seeing it correctly now. The theme was screwing with GF.
