How to Style the List and Uploader Appearance

Simple File List is meant to take on your website’s theme by default. Without any modification to the style, it should look presentable on your WordPress website.

However, if you wish to adjust the appearance you can use some simple CSS.

Main Container

Both the file list and uploader are enclosed in a <div id=”eeSFL”>. Use CSS in your own theme to effect your own styling

#eeSFL {
     background-color: black;
     color: white;  /* Text Color */

The File List

The File List is made up of an HTML table. You can use these styles to over-ride the default appearance.

/* Values Shown are the defaults */

/* The list container */
#eeSFL table.eeFiles {
	width: 100%;
	border-collapse: collapse;
	border: 1px solid #999;
	text-align: center;

/* Change the color of a row's background on hover */ 
#eeSFL .eeFiles tr:hover {
	background: #FFF;

/* The appearance of the table's header row */ 
#eeSFL .eeFiles th {
	text-align: center;
	background: #555;
	color: #EEE; 
	cursor: pointer;

/* The appearance of the table cells */ 
#eeSFL .eeFiles td {
	padding: .25em 0;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #999;
	text-overflow: clip;
	overflow: hidden;
        vertical-align: middle;
        text-align: center;

/* The appearance of the file name */ 
#eeSFL td.eeSFL_FileName {
	text-align: left;
	padding-left: 3px;

/* The appearance of the file link  */ 
#eeSFL .eeFiles td a {
	text-decoration: none;

/* The appearance of the file list actions area */ 
.eeSFL_ListFileActions {

/* The appearance of the file list actions link */
.eeSFL_ListFileActions a {

The Uploader

The Uploader is uses these styles:

/* Values Shown are the defaults */

/* The upload form container */
#eeUploadForm {


/* The appearance of the browser's file input */
#eeSFL input[type=file] {
	float: left;
	margin-right: 2em;
	font-size: 120%;

/* The visability of the spinner */
#eeSFL #eeUploadingNow {
	display: none;   /* Hide until an upload begins */

/* The appearance of the spinner */
.entry-content .eeSFL_UploadingImg {
	margin-right: 1em;
	box-shadow: none !important;
	border-radius: 32px;

/* The appearance of the upload information text */
#eeSFL p.sfl_instuctions {
	float: right;
	text-align: right;
	width: 50%;

Uploader Information Form

These styles control the optional Uploader Information form:

/* Values Shown are the defaults */

/* The upload form container */
#eeUploadInfoForm {


/* The appearance of form labels */
#eeSFL label {
	float: left;

/* The appearance of the form inputs */
#eeSFL input[type=text],
#eeSFL input[type=tel],
#eeSFL input[type=email],
#eeSFL input[type=file],
#eeSFL textarea {
	float: left;
	clear: left;
	width: 100%;
	margin-bottom: 20px;

/* The appearance of the form's submit button */
#eeSFL input[type=submit] {
	float: right;
	clear: both;
	margin-top: 30px;
