Need Custom CSS to Alter Specific Form Field, not just the Field Type

Hi all,

I'm using the following custom CSS code to split my long list of values (classified as a checkboxes field type) into 3 columns on one of my forms...

This code works great, but I'm now adding another Field that's under the same field type category (i.e. checkboxes) and this code is also splitting the new list of values into 3 columns, which I don't want (Screenshot below).

Please post sample code you think might solve or if there is a simpler workaround for this please let me know!

Any help is appreciated!  Thanks!

The current set of checkboxes is .mktoFormRow:nth-of-type(6). Thus with

.mktoFormRow:nth-of-type(6) .mktoCheckboxList LABEL {

  outline: 1px solid red;

}

you get

Re: Need Custom CSS to Alter Specific Form Field, not just the Field Type

The key is to tag all your .mktoFormRow and .mktoFormCol elements with the names of your fields.  I posted the JS helper fn for that a few times (should add it to my blog).  As a quick-and-(very)-dirty fix for your form is it currently stands, do:

.mktoFormRow:nth-of-type(3) .mktoCheckboxList .mktoField

.mktoFormRow:nth-of-type(3) .mktoCheckboxList label

Where (3) is the position of the checkboxes field on your form that you do want to restyle (i.e. First Name may be (1), Email (2), etc.).

This kind of styling is very fragile as it will change if you change field order, but it'll work in a pinch.

The position meaning the row it's in? The new field is in the seventh row so I replaced "3" with "7" and previewed the form but it didn't seem to change layout.

Post a link to the form.  You may be skipping a row without realizing it.

Gotta be a public page.

Here's a link to landing page: https://info.dh.com/GCProgram-Registration.html

I haven't approved my latest edits to the form yet so you won't see the new field on the page.
