    Hi All

    Kevin, I'm afraid I'm still having problems with IE8. I've flicked you an email with an image of what I'm seeing but I think my email account may be playing up in the light of last week's episode.

    If you didn't get it, would you please let me know and I'll resend.

    Many thanks
    Richard

    Hiya - Do you guys do beer donations (in monetary form via PayPal)? I'd gladly drop you one if you were able to fix this please. Completely understand if you're too busy; I know this is beyond the call. Cheers. Richard.

  5. Richard, I didn't forget about you, just did get busy with some offline business at the end of the week (taxes - ugh). I'll make a point to look at it this morning and get back to you. Thanks for your patience.

  6. Richard,

    Your issue is coming from the default canvas stylesheet. Line 547 of the /canvas/style.css file sets a blanket padding rule to all Gravity Forms inputs.

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper input { padding: 7px 3px !important; }

    Since the radio/checkboxes are inputs as well, they inherit this padding so it's throwing the heights off and causing the staggered layout in IE. Since they specified the rule is !important, you'l probably have to use the important declaration on the properties I sent previously.

    [css]
    body .gform_wrapper input[type=radio],
    body .gform_wrapper input[type=checkbox]{
    	padding-top:0!important;
    	padding-bottom:0!important;
    	border-top:none;
    	border-right:none;
    	border-bottom:none;
    	border-left:none
    }

    Any time a theme applies blanket margin/padding rules to inputs it's going to throw off the layout for the list items. It's a shortcut that way too many theme developers take and a common problem.

    The proper way to do this would be target the inputs by their specific types to apply the properties.. example below:

    [css]
    input[type=text],
    input[type=tel],
    input[type=url],
    input[type=number],
    input[type=file],
    input[type=password] {padding:7px 3px}
