A contact form can be styled any way you like by editing the CSS. Depending on the plugin you use, a specific styelsheet may be used for the contact form alone. Otherwise, the styles will pull from your main stylesheet (selectors like form, label, input, etc.)

I'm Looking to Add a Contact form.for example


There is a green application button that takes users to an apply page. I want to change that button so that it opens up a simple modal form using bootstrap like this:


And one more example when you click on Login link in top nav on treehouse you will get bootstrap styled login Fields from bottom of the page.i looking to add that kind of details. Riley Bracken Sam Lucklore

Did you read the documentation on the bootstrap site?

Here is the link to the modals currently in 2.3, how to use it etc. Look at the live demo version because I think that is what you are looking for.

Hi gopinath para,

You might find this blog post from Zac Gordon to be helpful: http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/responsive-wordpress-bootstrap-theme-tutorial

After following it through, you might have a better idea of how to build forms using CSS, as Sam Lucklore described.

Thanks Folks,Those resources are really helpfull. I Created the form by using contact form 7 which you will find on my development site :) http://gopinathpara.info But now the problem is with styling the contact form 7 for which i created a new discussion here


So any suggestion on this!!!!
