i have a problem which i cannot solve..

i found a nice php popup contact form for my page which aldready has layout.css and this contact form has its own .css file which is called popup-contact.css

the contact form work without a problem with its test page:

http://www.tercume.pro/a-page.php

when you click on the yellow "contact us" button you will see that the form is nice and
styled..



however,


when i implement it to my website www.tercume.pro/index.php where the form is supposed to be,and click on the picture with numbers on, you see that the form does not get rendered and is without the style and even the "close link" is not visible, whereas it is properly styled on the a-page.php


when i get rid of the layout.css in the index.php, then the form is styled but then the page is not..

i wanna have both the styles in one page..

so how can we solve this?
pandy
Have you already found some of the problems? The only thing I notice is that the closing X isn't visible because it has the wrong color. Otherwise it looks fine. If not, what browser do you use?
pandy
Now I notice that the URL to both the style sheets are wrong.

CODE
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../styles/layout.css">
<link rel="STYLESHEET" type="text/css" href="../styles/popup-contact.css">


../ means up one directory and you are already in the top directory. Odd, I wouldn't have expected that to work at all. unsure.gif

thank you.. i just removed the "../"

i also cleared cache and even used tried with another pc..



actually there's a difference.. the form on index.php is not styled like the one on a-page.php


let me show you, this is the proper style from a-page.php:

IPB Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us


and this is from index.php where it is not properly styled:

IPB Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us


You see one form has black and bold font and the other is grey..


i am using both firefox and ie for testing
Frederiek
The labels, which are styled in popup-contact.css, use a relative font size unit: 0.8em, and are affected by your body text, which is set to be 13px in your own stylesheet.
Just get rid of the font-size: 0.8em; for the labels in popup-contact.css or change it to your likings.

how about label font color?

that must be relative too because it gets changed in layout.css too..

i fixed the size can you tell me how i'll do the label font color now?


than you very much once again..
Frederiek
You're welcome.

You could get rid of the font-size altogether, as you've set it now to be the same as body, which would be the default size for all text, including the labels, anyway.

As for the color, just add that to the rule.

And, since you made changes to the popup-contact.css file, now you see it *does* load with the page, or you wouldn't have seen the changes in the page. You would have noticed already if you could inspect elements (with eg the Web Inspector in Safari or the Firebug plugin for Firefox).

Our posts overlapped.

Just add he color to #contactus label.

you know what everything's good now : )

problem solved.


thanks a lot..



just one more thing i'd like to ask. is it possible to have the form cleared once the submit button is pressed or should i ask that question in the php forum?


thank you so much Frederiek..
pandy
I'm confused now. If the popup form doesn't render at all, what did you just post a screen cap of? wacko.gif

interesting, right..

well the best i can think of is that it did get rendered but the layout.css was overwriting some parts of the popup-contacts.css. now that we changed those parts from relative to fixed, they do not get affected any more.


this is the best i can think of : )

In fact, I think a successful submission of the form should be notified to the visitor. And, since the form is in a popup window, a close button could then be provided to dismiss the popup.

The form's action has a javascript call. In what way is PHP used for the form?

QUOTE
Pandy: I'm confused now. If the popup form doesn't render at all

It didn't render for you?
pandy
Sure it did. The OP said it doesn't render for him on the "real" page, still he can produce a screen cap of it on that page. That's what's confusing.

I assume you got the script from http://www.html-form-guide.com/php-form/ph...validation.html. Unfortunately, there aren't any online demos, but there are several demos in the zip file. I suppose you added some code (from somewhere else?) to put it in an overlayer (popup).

Anyway, sample 2 seems to be the one you use. A thank-you.php is used for the succesfull submission of the form. It seems to me you have to load that in the popup, like you did for the contact form itself, only now after submision of the form.

IIRC, you also use some other js validation, which seems overkill.

BTW, your site seems to be down now, as I get redirected to http://error404.000webhost.com/? .

actually i changed my mind.. i am not going to use php forms.. during the testing, only 1 out 10 forms submitted reached to destination. other 9 forms did not.
