    Hello @pinballnate,

    In the update processes of plugins and themes, WordPress replaces their files with the new ones (by the way we never force to install the updates, if they are being installed automatically you should have configured your website to install all the plugins’ updates dynamically), for this reason edit the files of the plugins or themes it is not a good option.

    Both, our plugin and WordPress include alternatives to avoid edit the styles directly in the plugin’s files.

    In our plugin:

    If you want redefine the styles of the form’s elements, simply enter the new style definitions into the “Customize Form Design” attribute in the “Form Settings” tab (

    Note that in some CSS rules may be needed the use of the modifier: !important; to overwrite the css rule defined in the template selected.

    In the theme:

    The mechanism to edit the forms appearance at level of the theme, without edit the theme files, is create a child theme of your current one, and include the new style definitions in it style.css file. More information about the child themes visiting the following link:

    Best regards.
