Positioning of Form with CSS Form Builder

Hi,

I have a left hand column on my page and when I try to place the form in the main content area, the form positions itself in line with the bottom of the left hand column, about half way down the page. I have tried adjusting the alignment but it doesn't move to the top of the content area.

Any insight would be appreciated!

Hi there,

It would be easier to diagnose the problem if you could post a link to the form, but in the meantime you could try selecting your form (in Dreamweaver 'design view') and in the CSS styles panel, click 'Add Property', and add the property, 'float:left'.

If this doesn't do it, then post a link to where we can see the form.

I had the same issue. Getting rid of the clear: both; property in

form.NewFromBlank_Default fieldset.NewFromBlank_Default {
clear:both; <--delete this
}

fixed it for me. You could give that a try.

Thanks!!!

I tried the suggestion from Neilo...Unfortunitely didn't work in my case, it just spread everything about the page.

Twitchr377598...could you explain the steps you are suggesting...I'm a bit "thick" sometimes when it comes to these things..I'm not a web techie by any means!!! :-)

Thanks everyone for your help to date

If you could send a link to your page so i can examine the code, I can tell exactly what needs to be changed.

Hi Jason,

Here is the link to a live test page, the page is incomplete as I was trying to work out the form's placement.

in the siteassistpro_css/content.css file, edit the following code:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
margin: 0 0 0 220px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
background-image: url(../images/body/bgbody.jpg);
}



to:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
margin: 0 0 0 220px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
background-image: url(../images/body/bgbody.jpg);
overflow: hidden;
}

Or doing the float:left that was suggested three weeks ago:

In your FD_JDP_ContactForm.css file:


form.JDP_ContactForm {
background-image:url("FD_JDP_ContactForm/bgbody.jpg");
background-repeat:repeat;
color:#557F00;
font-family:Georgia,Times New Roman,Times,serif;
font-size:10pt;
font-weight:normal;
margin:0 0 0 50px;
text-transform:capitalize;
width:855px;
float:left;
}
Also adding a left margin of 50px (as shown in blue in the same rule above) would center your form in the content area.
