could somebody fix this one does not work for 3.2 bootstrap because they changed it https://github.com/twbs/boo...

#12759: Make input groups in inline forms use display: table-cell so they are sized properly and appear on the same line as intended.

I also like it very effective way to save space especially on mobile but it has own disadvantages... it is not obvious for users what to do you have to style it a bit more to make it functionally understandable
