    Form fields not able to set correct dimensions

    Asked by mypowersocial on November 15, 2016 at 03:22 AM


    Please see video:  http://www.screencast.com/t/CdTla8Xz 

    I am having a very difficult time with the form in creating a text box that will go wider and higher.  I also have a problem with the popup message showing up on the far right.  

    I have spent a couple hours trying to find the solution and no luck. I am close to chucking the whole thing but I really want and need this to work.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    You must inject below CSS code on your form to solve your problem with popup message.

    li#id_47 {

        width: 640px;


    Click "Design" and select "Inject CSS" part. Paste this code and just click "Save Changes".

    You may have a look following guide to inject custom css codes to your form. 


    Everything works properly, as you can see:

    For the second problem:

    As I understood you want to change "Describe Your Business" field text area size.

    You should inject this CSS code to your form like above.

    textarea#input_22 {
        width: 200px;
