    CSS code is showing right in designer, but not in preview or when embedded

    Asked by opxladmin on November 19, 2015 at 09:04 PM

    I have changed my column width using....

    .form-checkbox-item {
       width: 250px;

    They display right in designer but not in preview or when embedded. Am I missing something obvious?

    I'm using a theme (I created), it shows right in the theme designer as well, but not the preview.

    Can you try adding the CSS !important rule to your CSS code so it can override any code that sets your field to a smaller one.

    .form-checkbox-item {
       width: 250px !important;



    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
