    How do we increase the space on the form to have the text further away from the edge?

    To increase the space between the text and the border, all that we should do is to apply some padding.

    To do that, you should add the following CSS code:

    div.form-all ul {
        padding: 0 20px;

    This will move it from the left and the right for 20px, but you can change 20 to any other value if you wish instead until you have the padding that you are most satisfied with.

    You add this code in the same location as the previous two codes: Inject Custom CSS Codes
