Conflicting CSS


This Ticket is public


Hey guys!

I LOVE Formidable. I am using it on a new site I am working on. I think the formidable CSS is conflicting with my theme CSS? My forms have a ton of padding between each field.How can I fix this? I have already tried editing the Formidable CSS file and also tried adding Custom CSS to my theme using FireBug. Do I need to remove something instead?

Here is a link:

I would really like to format it like this:

Can you point me in the right direction?

I'm experiencing the same issues, see my site:

Jenna & others,

I think I found the solution, it could be your theme CSS causing the odd spacing issues. Try this:

It worked for me, but it may not work for everybody.

I was able to look up your account, and it looks like you have paid for priority support. in the future, please log in to gain access to the priority support you have paid for.

Like Josh mentioned, #3 on Should help with your form. The problem is that either your theme or another plugin is causing certain content on your page(in this case, your form) to be filtered twice. When your form is filtered a second time, extra <br> and <p> tags are getting inserted into your form causing the spacing issues. 9 times out of 10, adding [raw][/raw] tags around your formidable form shortcode will resolve the problem. If they don't, you will need to isolate the issue to either a plugin or your theme and then contact them and ask how to prevent certain content from being filtered twice.
