I want to style my radio buttons, selects, checkboxes, file upload etc.

This isn't possible out of the box but it is possible with some workarounds. They mainly involve hiding the elements and replacing them with other elements to fake it. It still works and so far as I'm aware can still be accessible.

In some instances I can achieve this with CSS alone. But in some instances I need to insert an extra element. Is there a way to override the fields in the same way that custom fields in Joomla! can be overridden?

Hello,

I am not sure whetehr that can be done in the same way that custom fields in Joomla! can be overridden. I think that you will have to keep doing it the way that you have tried.

Also, if wanted you can add styling to a specific form only, as explained in this article crosstec.org/en/blog/948-adding-custom-s...a-specific-form.html .
It might help you achieve what you want.

Regards,

Mihaela

Unfortunately not. I need to actually add an extra HTML element, which probably means using JS to insert it. If that's the only way I'll create a plugin.
