    Decrease the height of a field, pushing down the form by a hair

    Asked by poopselfie on February 23, 2014 at 05:26 AM

    I have a form with a few fields that are all in equal height, but for some reason the top field is just a tiny bit too tall with is pushing down the form where it shouldnt be. The field in question is the "Your Name:" field under the "Public" radio button in this form. Notice on the website version it gets pushed down just a bit too far and interferes with the web layout. I would like to somehow through css change the height of that specific field to fit the rest.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Perhaps this might help:

    #id_16 {
    margin: 0px;

    You can adjust the px value to the value you desire.

    To add the CSS code to your form, use this linked guide.

    Let us know if this helps.
