    My form has bullet points or dots before each question - how do i get rid of them?

    Asked by fatherb on October 25, 2011 at 06:22 AM

    My form has dots or bullet points in front of each question and appears to be tabbed or aligned to the right.

     

    This appears only in Internet Explorer - 

     

    see here: http://www.jotform.com/form/12784043907

     

    Thanks for any help.

    Update: Found an answer on google for the bullet points - added this to the injected css

    li {
        list-style-type:none;
    }

    BUT still have an issue with it aligning to the right - can anyone help please?

    Right, updating this so it might help others.

     

    I added this to the injected CSS to align it to the left.

    form-all

    {
    margin-left: 0px;
    }

     

    However, this causes it to look an utter mess in Internet Explorer. The labels move to the other side of the input fields for some reason. Also, all the little text that looks lovely in Chrome is gone in Internet Explorer. eg. the example information like ex: myname@example.com is not displayed in Internet Explorer.  Also, the labels for phone number and area code have become huge - the same size as other items on the page..

    Is there something wrong with the coding for Internet Explorer and Jotform?

    Bullet points probably means the there was a problem with CSSon the form. I don't see it any more when I look at your form. It probably does not happen any more even without the CSS Inject code. If it does, can you create a clone of the form and let us know the URL?

    AWESOME.

     

    Whatever you did worked. Thanks for sorting that out.

    Bullet points are still occurring but, @fatherb, your list-style-type CSS corrected it! Thanks!

    Can anyone point out where I might insert the tags? I've got limited working knowledge of CSS. Help!

    Here's a guide: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes to your Form

    If the problem still persists, please open a new thread for your question and provide the website URL where your form is embedded so we can check the embedded form source code here and diagnose the problem further.

    Thanks!

    @EltonChris

    Thanks for the speedy reply. Mine is not on a website, I am trying to imbed in e-mail. I've gotten the e-mail to appear by following instructions here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/35502-Can-one-insert-a-jotform-into-an-email-message-e-g-gmail

     

    However, the e-mail has bullet points. Some other users had successfully solved it by using CSS, however I tried the injecting CSS method and a few manual tries, but no dice. My embedded e-mail still has bullet points and the field labels are right aligned. Any thoughts?

     

    Thanks,

    Ally
