    Why does name field change size when making it required?

    Asked by SNI_Toastmasters on March 09, 2015 at 03:54 PM

    When I use the full name field and it isn't required, the first and last name span the width of the form, but when I make the full name field required, both boxes shrink.

    size name shrink and field required

    From what I can tell, it's the extra CSS which was added to the form which is causing this issue. Please replace all of the form's injected CSS with this code and let us know if it helps.

    If the last name box seems to far away from the first name one, please replace the last rule in my code with the following:

    #last_40 {
    margin-left: -15px;
