WordPress Contact Form 7

Hello,

I want to stack horizontally some fields on a WordPress Contact Form 7, but the plugin seems to force a <br /> equivalent after a select element.

Here is the code:

Option 1 (Date / Time): [select Month1 id:wpcf7dm "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "7" "8" "9" "10" "11" "12"] [select Day1 id:wpcf7dd "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "7" "8" "9" "10" "11" "12" "13" "14" "15" "16" "17" "18" "19" "20" "21" "22" "23" "24" "25" "26" "27" "28" "29" "30" "31"] <br />

It looks like this: http://rain1.com/new-site/customer-support/service-request/

Is there a way to force the select fields to line up horizontally?

Thanks

you would have to change the code in the theme-style.php if you want the fields to be horizontal. (i.e remove the <br/> in the code.
but the forms is designed to be responsive so you would need to only change it for the large screen devices

There is no php called theme-style.php in the edit page.

How do I find that?

the location is:
http://rain1.com/new-site/wp-content/themes/bee/functions/theme/theme-style.php
if its not accessible from the online editor, you may have to download the file (back it up ) change it and re-upload it.
- Oh actually looking at this it  just generates  a CSS file so its not the one that adds in the <br/> - that's probably in  the /plugins/contact-7-form/ folder

chilternPC,

I know a little css; I can see NOTHING in that file that effects form fields; note that the CAPTION of the field is ABOVE the fields; seems there should be an option to place it to the left.

I've pretty much given up on this, I'll post a related question shortly.

I've tried 6 or 7, I think that one too. Drag & Drop doesn't work because of the theme (Bee).

I can't afford to force the customer to another theme now; have to bill more than they would want to pay, have to live with Contact Form 7.

I've just installed contact form 7 and you can edit the contact form!

go to the "Contact" on the left hande menu when you log in, click on the  form menu and click on the name of the contact form you have created.

on the left hand side is the code for your form including the <br/>.
remove the <br/> and the 'newline'  and save  so its like:

[select menu-816 include_blank "one" "two" "three" "four"][select menu-816 include_blank "one" "two" "three" "four"][select menu-816 include_blank "one" "two" "three" "four"]

and save. see example here:
