    How do I removed the embossed border around text boxes?

    Asked by clarkschool on January 11, 2017 at 11:00 AM

    Hi there, would you be able to provide me with the CSS (or direct me where to edit this in Advanced Design) for removing the embossed look around the Full Name and Email text boxes? I've added arrows to the screenshot to show what I'm asking about. Thank you!

    I can see what you mean, there are rounded borders around the text boxes.

    Please insert this custom CSS code to your form in order to remove the borders around the text boxes. Here's the code:

    .form-textbox, .form-dropdown { 
    border: 1px solid #a1a1a1 !important;
    border-radius: 0px !important;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;

    input:focus, textarea:focus, .form-upload:focus, .form-dropdown:focus  { 
    border: 1px solid #a1a1a1 !important;
    border-radius: 0px !important;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;

    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input), .form-line-error select, .form-line-error textarea, .form-validation-error { 
    border: 1px solid #ff3200 !important;
    border-radius: 0px !important;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    box-shadow: 0 0 3px #ff3200 !important;

    .form-line-error input, .form-line-error textarea { 
    border: 1px solid #ff3200 important;
    border-radius: 0px !important;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px #eee inset !important;
    box-shadow: 0 0 3px #ff3200 !important;
