Reduce Width of Text Area field in Sidebar widget

  1. Please advise how to go about reducing the width of the text area field in GravityForm (widget) to less than 300px? The site is http://ruralhomeloans.us/

  2. Hello Craig, what you will have to do is add some custom CSS to your themes stylesheet to style the textarea however you want. Since the form is being displayed in a widget you can target the widget and then the form element you want to modify.

    Here is some example code you could try, this would be added to your themes stylesheet file.

    .gravityformswidget textarea {width: 90%;}

  3. Craig, an additional note. Since you're using the third party form widget, it doesn't automatically load the default Gravity Forms styles.

    You might want to add the style sheet reference to your page template manually as this will take care of most of the spacing, bullets and other minor style issues I saw on your form.

    Here's a screenshot of the widget with the default Gravity Forms styles enabled.. no additional CSS. You'll see that it fits fine without any other modifications.
