    How can you move the form's text boxes down?

    Asked by guest_23406377955058 on December 07, 2012 at 02:51 PM

    I have designed a custom background where I have a logo and some other things in the top of the image. When I add the text boxes of the form, they align with the top of the form. Can can I move the text boxes down?

    Hi, Can you try injecting this Custom CSS?

    .form-section {margin-top:260px !important; }

    These are the instrutions for where you need to put this rule:

    It may a little more tweaking but that should be a good starting point.

    When I did that, it also moved my background image down as well. How do I have that top margin apply to the text boxes only, and not the background image.


    The current css I have is:

    .form-section {margin-top:260px !important; }

     .form-all {

    background: url(http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i428/regancomm/facebooktab_test-1.jpg) no-repeat top left;

    }.form-all {height: 1200px;}

    Append this to your code:

    .form-line.form-line-column {

    line-height: 28px;


    .form-all {

    padding-top: 260px !important;

    padding-left: 20px !important;



    background:none !important;


    .form-label-left, .form-label-right{

    visibility: hidden !important;


    Let us know how it goes so we can assist you further. Thanks!
