    How to make my form thinner?

    Asked by GDrummer95 on December 06, 2013 at 02:53 PM

    Hello there, I can't seem to make my form thinner, I like the look and color but there is too much padding or something on the side. How can I make it thinner and remove some of the padding?

    Here's the website url:

    Hello. Thanks for contacting us. I can see that you already used the iFrame embed code. You may use this iframe embed code for that specific form.

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="//support.jotform.com/form/33395308006148" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:571px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>
    <script type="text/javascript">window.handleIFrameMessage = function(e) {var args = e.data.split(":");var iframe = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");if (!iframe)return;switch (args[0]) {case "scrollIntoView":iframe.scrollIntoView();break;case "setHeight":iframe.style.height = args[1] + "px";break;}};if (window.addEventListener) {window.addEventListener("message", handleIFrameMessage, false);} else if (window.attachEvent) {window.attachEvent("onmessage", handleIFrameMessage);}</script>

    All you need to do is to decrease the width percentage. It should make the form thinner. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you

    In addition to my colleague's suggestion, I also cloned your form and worked a little on it so that it can look more alike to the form of the site you mentioned. So, here it is: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/33396342381961

    I simply injected this css code:



    background-color:#F9C940 !important;




    margin-left:10px !important;

    width:184px !important;

    height:25px !important;




    margin-left:10px !important;


    If you think that it is helpful for you, feel free to clone it so that you can use it for your needs. Here's how to clone a form: How to clone an existing for from a URL

    I hope it helps. Feel free to inform us if you need further assistance.
