    Our forms are already optimized for mobile views so it is built in on the forms already. However, if you like to customize it further, you can use these CSS codes to make your form mobile ready! :)

    Simply inject this CSS to your form. How to Inject Custom CSS Codes to your Form

    @media only screen

    and (min-device-width : 320px)

    and (max-device-width : 480px) {

    .form-all {

    width: 320px !important;


    .form-line {

    padding-top: 0px !important;

    padding-bottom: 0px !important;

    padding-left: 3px !important;


    img.form-image {

    max-width: 100% !important;

    height: auto !important;


    #id_1.form-line {

    padding-left: 36px !important;

    padding-right: 36px !important;



    Then adjust the minimum and maximum device width to your liking.  This will force the mobile formatting to the dimensions you desire.
