How to position my form fields side by side and reduce the size of the form

Recommended Posts

hi, anyone know how to move form fields side-by-side so the form doesn't feel so long? ideally, I would like to have the phone number field next to the email field, the "number of residents" next to the "approximate monthly income" field, and the "what amount are you hoping to put down" next to the "approximate monthly income". 

I'd also like to know if there's way to make the "would you like to receive news about future DADO developments" just a checkbox and not a dropdown.

I have a second site I need to do this too as well.

please help!

thanks, @Ziggy. when I plug the code from that thread in as-is, it moves one field, but not the right one, and then splits another field so the label is in the line above and the box for it is below (see attached). 

I tried changing the code a bit with the names of my form fields, but sadly, I am a bit of a novice/hack and can't figure out how to make it work for my fields. appreciate the attempt though! if I knew more, I could probably make it work.
