    Compatability of Contact Form fields

    First Post so apologies if I'm breaking any rules.

    I have a contact form on my website Repair damaged photos, Photographic Retouching and Image Enhancement in Cheltenham

    When viewing it on other colleagues computers I notice that the form field where text is to be entered is too narrow and not as I designed the contact form.

    Customers wanting to contact me are not able to complete the form field which was designed in Dreamweaver.

    How can I ensure that this form will look the same in all browsers?

    Warning - 57 year old web novice.

    My thanks in advance

    I'm able to type in all of the boxes OK.

    What do you mean by "not able to complete"?

    Hi mlseim

    On some browsers the height of the text field is not high enough to see the words that have been input.

    Not sure but I think the browser was IE 7

    I see it fine on IE9/10 and I think its OK on Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

    I'll try and get a screen dump and post that.

    I wouldn't even worry about it. Not many people use IE7 anymore.

    It seems like the ability to upload photos and describe the requirements is an important part of your website. You should hire a programmer to integrate a form that utilizes AJAX (PHP, JQuery) and a database. Your clients would be uploading to your website database instead of email. The whole user interface would be really nice looking, intuitive, and interactive w/ upload progress, etc.

    Just my opinion.

    I appreciate your feedback. I struggled with php to get the submit button incorporated into the site so I did hire a programmer in the states who charged me 30 which I was well pleased with. I'd rather learn the programming myself but if I get more income from the business and consequently be able to pay for a professional design will go down that route as I probably won't have time to play with dreamweaver then!
