    I know that I can change the background colour of text in a text field, but then I don't have a box for the answer to the question. Please help!

    I'm confused on what you're trying to do. Is this what you're describing?

    I saw a couple of Text Fields that have a yellow background.

    If this is not what you mean to do, and you want the entire Text Field's container to have a background color instead, let us know which specific Text Field it is and what background color you want so we can give you the CSS codes needed.

    I would like to change the background text of the attached field to the same yellow as other fields.
    Thanks for your help.

    Looks like you attached it directly from your email. Our Forum doesn't accept email attachments. To send a screenshot to us, you have to open your thread on a separate tab (just click this link) then post your reply from there along with the screenshot.

    Adding the following code to your form will change the text are background to yellow:

    .form-textarea {
