    Removing top margins

    Asked by PodiumMC on December 02, 2014 at 11:55 AM

    What is with the ridiculous amount of top margin on a form?


    There must be close to 100px (or more) of top margin on this form.

    I've already adjusted the CSS to 


    .form-html p { } .form-line { } .form-all { margin : 0px 0px 0px 0px; }\



    UPDATE - I've fixed it

    top margin is now -120px

    left margin is now -30px


    Just silly...



    Or am I doing something wrong? 

    But anyway - why should I have to adjust the CSS to get rid of what I seem to think is an overkill on the margins?

    Hello PodiumMC,

    It seems you have already solve this issue in your form as it appears correctly in your web page. The issue is caused because of the following custom css code you have in your form:

    .jotform-form {

    padding: 90px 0;


    If this code is removed along with the margin css code, your form will appear fine. I would suggest you to keep it as it is since your form appears to be fine now.

    Thank you!

    Dear Ashwin,

    How is that I have this custom code in my form? Is this code in ALL my forms?

    How do I get rid of the CSS I may have put into all my forms? Is there a master CSS for all my forms?

    Hello PodiumMC,

    Do you continue to have the margin issue in your form? 

    I am not sure but it seems the margin was added when you edited your form in "Form Designer" but it is not there in all your forms. Your form appears to be fine in your web page.

    Do get back to us if you see any issue and we will take care of it.

    Thank you!
