View Full Version : How can I change success message font size on Bootstrap Contact form?

On this page http://newfieldshome.com/contact.html I am using a responsive contact form I saw for Bootstrap. When you submit it gives you a success message from the contact.php page.

$okMessage = 'Contact form successfully submitted. Thank you, I will get back to you soon!
How can I make that message larger? This is from the contact.php page


// configure
$from = 'contact form <John@SamonasGroup.com>';
$sendTo = 'contact form <John@SamonasGroup.com>';
$subject = 'New message from contact form';
$fields = array('name' => 'Name', 'surname' => 'Surname', 'phone' => 'Phone', 'email' => 'Email', 'message' => 'Message'); // array variable name => Text to appear in the email
$okMessage = 'Contact form successfully submitted. Thank you, I will get back to you soon!';
$errorMessage = 'There was an error while submitting the form. Please try again later';

// let's do the sending

$emailText = "You have new message from contact form\n=============================\n";

foreach ($_POST as $key => $value) {

if (isset($fields[$key])) {
$emailText .= "$fields[$key]: $value\n";

$headers = array('Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8";',
'From: ' . $from,
'Reply-To: ' . $from,
'Return-Path: ' . $from,

mail($sendTo, $subject, $emailText, implode("\n", $headers));

$responseArray = array('type' => 'success', 'message' => $okMessage);
catch (\Exception $e)
$responseArray = array('type' => 'danger', 'message' => $errorMessage);

if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']) && strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']) == 'xmlhttprequest') {
$encoded = json_encode($responseArray);

header('Content-Type: application/json');

echo $encoded;
else {
echo $responseArray['message'];

this is the custom css page if you need it http://www.newfieldshome.com/css/custom.css

That is just a text message echoed to the browser. If you want to style it you will have to enclose in an HTML page so that you can add styling.

Replace the last three lines of your PHP file with this:

else {
echo '<!doctype html><html lang="en"><head><title>Response page</title>';
echo '<style> .myStyle { /* Your styling goes in here */ }</style>';
echo '</head><body>';
echo '<p class="myStyle">'.$responseArray['message'].'</p>';
echo '</body></html>';
