    Width in pixels

    Asked by rkord4 on March 16, 2011 at 02:25 PM

    Hello, I can view my forms in IE but in Firefox is cut off down the middle.

    My web provided said that I probably needed to use the width in pixels and not in percentage. Do you know if it makes a difference?

    Thanks for any help you can give. I'm not the most computer savvy person :(

    Hi Robyn,

    Yes it can make a big difference, depending on how the page is coded up.  Percentage can mean percentage of the screen, or percentage of the available space inside the parent element.  If you are working within someone else's template or an unknown cms and you are unsure of the available space, then pixels are a better choice.

    Try setting the size of the element outside of the jotform code to a specific value and you should see the form correctly.  Width is a big cause of problems when it comes to consistancey.  Have a look at the box model if you are unclear of anything:
