padding padding to field labels

  1. Hi,

    My client is fussing and needs padding like 2 pixels around on the name and email labels on top of this form at the bottom of this page.

    http://www.newhairutah.com

    site is almost done and he is just form crazy.

    is this possible? I tried some css but didn't have any luck changing the padding.

    thanks,

    John

  2. Do you mean you want to space the placeholder text in those two fields away from the input field border? Just for those two labels?

  3. where it says Name, Email Phone and Comments. Its too bunched up next to the borders of the field.

  4. You initially mentioned name and email only, so I was confused since they all looked the same to me (too close to the border.) It looks OK in Firefox but too close in Chrome. Try adding this to your theme's stylesheet:

    body .gform_wrapper form textarea,
    body .gform_wrapper form input[type="text"] {
      padding-left: 2px;
      padding-top: 2px;
    }

    I started with higher values to see the change, but changed it back to 2px. You can try different values to see the effect.
