    Can I choose a different color/style for my form warning?

    Asked by pixelsandink on November 09, 2012 at 08:34 PM

    Hi there

    Would like to choose a different color than pink for my form warnings. 

    Where do I do this?

    Also is it possible for a smaller warning box to appear, so that the entire form does not shift?


    Thank you!

    Yes, you can do that by injecting custom css codes to your form. Try it with this codes:

    .form-line-error .form-error-message {

    background: #53AEE1 !important;

    padding: 1px !important;


    .form-error-arrow {

    border-bottom-color: #53AEE1 !important;



    Just change the HTML color codes (bolded codes) to any color your like. The padding 1px helps reduce the error box height.
