    Now I have even more problems. For some unknown reason the “last name” field moved below the “first name” field instead of side by side.

    I still have the white field background. Maybe I am trying to do something that’s not possible. I want each field to be on the #d3d3d4 background.

    No answer was given to designing forms with multiple fields and a width of 980px. I need to know if this is possible.

    Here's the URL: http://www.jotform.ca/form/41237362363249

    It was a redirect, clicking on the link provided below the Invalid URL message takes you to the correct link:

    Is that the form? Please let us know.

    I think this is the form you are reffering to: http://www.jotform.ca/form/41236802378253

    To have the first and last name be on the same line, do the following:

    1. Add a Full name field as shown in the form builder:

    2. Then delete the first two name fields:

    Here is a demo of how the form would look: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41253407720951

    Let us know if this helps.

    As per my original post I asked about being able to design multiple fields on a single line by setting the overall width of the form and the field widths. No one has answered me and I have to make a decision whether to contnue with FormSite or your company. I will need a number of registration forms, survey forms and contact forms, plus the ability to accept payments.

     

    Please advise.

    @ChecMark

    Would our form field positioning guide help? Basically, widening a form will not position two adjacent fields on the same line unless both fields have been shrunk.

    Please elaborate if you need further help with this.


    Thanks

    @ChecMark

    Exactly to which form are you referring? I just want to be sure that we're all "on the same page", so to speak.


    Thanks

    If I am not able to set either the form width or field widths it won't work for me. My current form on FormSite - http://fs11.formsite.com/ChecMark/form1/index.html?1399915563181 has six and seven fields on the same line.

    The form width can be easily changed through the editor. Also, we can do some basic position and size adjustments. Please take a look at the following video:

    More advanced styling changes available with injected CSS, so if you have any questions about this, please let us know.

    Hello, 

    I do have a similar problem.  I can't have the Prefix - First Name & Last Name displayed on a same line 

    The last name is always displayed onto a second line.
