Problem with contact form on mobile device

    Please checkout my contact form here: using a mobile device. I use a Nexus 7 tablet and see two problems. One is the Comment Field is too wide and intrudes on the graphic on the right side. The major problem is no Captcha word loads. Viewed on a PC using W7, it is perfect. Thanks. --CL

    Please try removing also the Captcha field in your jotform.

    JotForm already have spam filter/prevention built-in on the back-end system, so it is not really that necessary to use the Captcha field anymore. 

    To make the TextArea field less wider try replacing the injected CSS code in your jotform to this

    /*---BACKGROUND IMAGE---*/

    img.form-image {

    z-index: -1;

    position: absolute;

    margin-left: -30px !important;


    .form-line { background: none; }

    .form-header {

    margin-top: 60px;

    text-align: center;

    color: #000 !important;


    .form-header-group {

    border-bottom: none !important;

    border-top: none !important;


    #id_4.form-line {

    margin-top: -30px !important;


    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-radio-other-input, .form-captcha input {

    padding: 3px;

    border: 1px solid




        width: 285px !important;

    Here is a modified demo jotform that you can test on your device browser.

    I fixed both problems.

    1. Removed captcha

    2. Changed width of "Comments and Question" field

    A. On the form page highlighted the "Comments and Question" field

    B. On that field right clicked, then left clicked on "Show Properties"

    C. Changed "Columns" (width of text area) from the default 34 to 32

    D. Clicked "Close Settings"

    E. Clicked "Save"

    F. Copied the new "Source Code" to my web page software and uploaded the changed page.

    G. This is a compromise between a regular page and mobile page, but it is satisfactory.

    Hope this helps others with the same problem.

    Glad to hear you've managed to resolve the problem and thanks for sharing the solution. We have also improved that template in the form templates page so its text area won't overlap on any other browsers.
