Need fields to line up into 6 columns

    My form is available for viewing at http://richardpyznar.com/order/

    When viewed on my Mac in Safari, Firefox & Chrome, the form displays as I would expect. See screenshot at:

    However, a friend of mine viewing the same page on Firefox on Windows sees all the form fields misaligned, as in the screenshot below:

    I just want all the 12 rows to line up in 6 neat columns. Now they all do have the gf_inline CSS style applied. I assume this is the culprit. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a Ready Class that allows me to divide it up into six columns. But this is exactly what I need to do. Can anyone help me?

  2. How about a workaround like setting the width of the #gform_wrapper_7 to 800px or so?

    #gform_wrapper_7 {
    width:800px;
    }

    That should prevent there from being enough room at the end of the line for the first field of the next line from floating up to the previous line.

    I don't have IE here to check with today, but I think a fix like that would work in this case.

    I will bring it to Kevin's attention as well since he's the CSS guru and might have a more proper fix for you.

    I can try this. Where would I change the form wrapper attribute? Thanks!

  4. Add those 3 lines of CSS to your theme's stylesheet, normally style.css. In your woo theme, I think they want you to use the custom.css file. Add this CSS to that file and see how it works.

  8. Do your fields have labels and are you setting a default value in each of your inputs? Or is something external placing the labels in your inputs?

    i found a post somewhere in here that said to take out the field label and put in the admin label. nothing external. i want to remove the default value which is why i'm asking about putting the field names at the top of the columns like on mgerenser form in the first post on this page.

    thanks for help

  10. Can you export your form and send the XML file to me to rob@rocketgenius.com so I can see how you have this setup and try to see what I can offer. Please reference this post in your email.

  11. What did you do to make 5 columns?

  12. Looks like each field is just using the gf_inline ready class and a combination of the "small" and "medium" field sizes.

    Yes that's right, a bit messy i know, thank god my theme is a fixed width on the content so all the boxes stay in their columns. Have sent email, thanks.

  14. I think you have two options here.

    First one would be to place labels on the first "row" of fields.
    Second option would be to use an HTML field and try to line up text above the first row of fields.
