Sidebar Widget Not Working

  1. Hi Guys

    For some unexplained reason I'm having trouble with the sidebar widget. The form is really basic, but I can't even input values and click submit.

    Can you please take a look and give me some suggestions,

    Thanks

    Does your form work in Form Preview? It looks like it might be a theme issue. Can you try to change themes to the WordPress default and see if it works as expected?

    Like I said, it is likely a theme issue. Not sure what exactly as every theme is different. Can you try a different theme and see if it works as expected and designed?

  5. Yes this is theme related, I just checked and a different theme does not cause any problems.

    What can I do to avoid having problems with the current theme ?

    Thanks

  6. Actually looks like the problem solved itself after I switched themes and reverted back to the original.

    Thanks

    You would have to go through and remove or override the styles relating to input boxes and your submit button in your theme's CSS.

    In your Base.css I see styles relating to #top .input-text, #top input[type="text"], #top input[type="input"], #top input[type="password"], #top input[type="email"], #top input[type="number"], #top input[type="url"], #top input[type="tel"], #top input[type="search"], #top textarea, #top select that is changing how the fields look.

    And then your formsmain.css is also changing how things are rendered. You may have to work with your theme developer to get this sorted out.
