Contact Form container


Recommended Posts

I created a contact form inside a wordpress container using the column selection. When I apply the code only inside the container it changes the color of the entire page to that background color of the form. Also, the form has side by side fields but for some reason onilne the fields are stacked. See photos. As you can see in the first picture I removed the background color.


Thank you.
