    How do I make the forms responsive?

    Asked by IslandParadise on February 18, 2014 at 04:56 AM

    Is there an easy way or standard size/width setting in order for the forms to be responsive in all mobile devices? My website is about 99.8% responsive except for this form and a map I need to figure out.

    Hello  IslandParadise

    To make a form layout scalable, you can simply use percentages. For example, a page that has two columns of ¾ and ¼ of the page width:

    #column1 {
        width: 75%;
    #column2 {
        width: 25%;

    This works until we are in need of padding around the contents of the columns. For example “padding: 20px”, this will be added to the percentage widths, and cause the two items to take up more than 100% width. 


    You can do this into your form  by changing the source code or you can do this onto your website page - exactly where you are inserting the form


    Greetings !
