Customizing the button further with CSS

The CSS for the Gator Forms buttons is in this folder: /wp-content/plugins/pwebcontact/media/css/themes/.

For example, if you’re using the Twenty Seventeen theme in Gator Forms, you’ll find the button CSS in the twenty-seventeen.css file. If you want to modify this code, we recommend that you override this CSS in your main WordPress theme’s CSS file.

form.pwebcontact-form button,
form.pwebcontact-form .btn {
    padding: 0.8em 1.8em;
    text-shadow: none !important;
    font-weight: 800;

form.pwebcontact-form button[type="submit"].btn {
    padding: 1em 2em;

form.pwebcontact-form button:hover,
form.pwebcontact-form button:focus,
form.pwebcontact-form button:active,
form.pwebcontact-form .btn:hover,
