Why does the form display inside a 360px wide box inside a Joomla article?

    I love your service, it's great! 

    But my problem is with integrating the form into a Joomla article. To be more specific, I have to limit the form to a 360px width in order to display correctly. If I use a larger widht (and I would really like to do so), the form elements are only visible inside that 360px wide portion, anything that is set to appear outside this space is cut off or doesn't show at all.

    Is this a problem you are aware of, or is it just something wrong with my site?

    Thank you in advance for your response!

    With respect,

    Liviu Lungu

    I checked your site's source code thoroughly and found out that this is caused by the restriction in the width of the table that contains your form's embed codes.

    .contentpaneopen {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        width: auto;

    This is set by your template, something named yoo switch? Am I correct? Try changing the width to any size you'd like, say, 500px. That should make it work. Get back to us if problem still persists. Thank you for using Jotform.
