expand my question across the entire page

Can anyone explain how I can edit a themeroller template to expand my question across the entire page?

I have some very long checkbox questions and every Themeroller template seems to crowd the question into one narrow column.

I have tried using NO TEMPLATE but it just isn’t every pretty and I am very BEGINNER level with editing code.

Would love any help with this issue. Here is my event page currently.

There is no way to just increase the width of the checkbox questions, it will need to be done for all the question labels.

Add the following to your themes style.css or a plugin such as My Custom CSS.

.event_espresso_form_wrapper label, .event_espresso_form_wrapper span.label {
width: 100% !important;

Oh and check your questions, you have some HTML showing on the front end.

Thank you. That definitely helped expand the question across the page. Any other suggested code to make it space out a little more evenly? It seems really jammed up.

But more importantly…the HTML in the questions…. Can you not add HTML to the question and value options. The BOLD seems to work in the question portion but color and bold will not show up on values portion. On the front end, it just shows my code.

HTML is allowed in those fields, so the only thing I can think is that another plugin is affecting them somehow. Can you test the HTML in the fields with just Event Espresso running? I would also swap temporarily to a defualt theme such as TwentyTwelve just to rule out theme interference.

So… I deactivated all plugins and changed my template back to TwentyTwelve and it still will not give me the HMTL code on my event. I really need to make my checkbox answers/values BOLD and RED so they will stand out to our participants. Am I not using the correct code? Any other suggestions?

Is it possible to get your login details in order to look into this?

If so, please send them via

NOTE: login details need to be Admin level.

You have added the HTML to the values section, it seems like that section does not allow HTML. You can safely add HTML to the Question title however.

Bummer. That would definitely be a nice feature to have.

So now I have added some HTML to my question to set them apart. And it is no longer letting me have breaks in my question. It is just pushing them all together into one block, where as just a day or two ago, my rules and regulation question was working correctly with the correct breaks.

I was using the code. Is that correct or are breaks not possible either?

I was using the “” code. Is that correct or are breaks not possible either?

Sometimes it’s better to use Pastebin or another similar service to post code as the forum tends to be harsh at restricting code if you are not an admin.

It looks like “ tags are stripped from the question (only basic html is allowed)
