To style forms, add the following to the top of your template

    {% csrf_token %}
    {{ form|as_bootstrap }}
    <div class="form-actions">

      <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Save changes</button>

Specifying form layouts

Bootstrap includes styles for four types of forms. To change the display of your form, add one of the following class attributes to your form tag:

Name Class Description

Horizontal .form-horizontal Float left, right-aligned labels on same line as controls
Inline .form-inline Left-aligned label and inline-block controls for compact style
Search .form-search Extra-rounded text input for a typical search aesthetic
