    Can we change the color of the highlight on the questions?

    Asked by jem0725 on January 20, 2011 at 03:59 PM

    Hi, I had asked about changing the highlight color on the form we've created. When we click on the text areas of the questions on the site, they show up a light yellow/peach color. Your response was, "I think that happens because of Google Toolbar. Can you try disabling the Google Toolbar and see if it still happens. If it still happens, please post the URL of the page." Since we won't be directing everyone who visits the site to disable the Google Toolbar, is there a universal solution or are we stuck? Site is http://thenanny-network.com/

    To disable the Highlight color, open "Preferences" button  on the "Setup & Share Toolbar", and then change the "Highlight Effect" option to "Disabled".


    To change the color of the hightlight effect, you can use the "Inject Custom CSS" feature on the same Preferences screen. Enter this code there:

       background-color: #F5F5F5;

    I love the option to disable the highlight, however, my lebel font color changes when I click inside each input box, seemingly to accomodate the old highlight color.  How can we keep that from happening?

    Instead of doing the Inject Custom CSS stuff, just disable the Highlight effect.
