    How to change field description font color and size

    Asked by printspaz on November 20, 2012 at 01:26 PM

    Hi I was wondering if there is a way to change the font that appears under certain fields, for Name fields there are labels under it which say 'first name, middle name, last name' and for Phone fields it may say 'area code, phone number'. Is there any way to change the color and size of this text that appears under some of the form boxes?


    Also another question, is there any way to change the color of the input boxes themselves, instead of a dark gray is there a way to change them to a pure black?


    Thank you,

    Inject these CSS codes to your form:

    /* Change the color of input boxes */


    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-radio-other-input, .form-captcha input, select {
    border1px solid black !important;

    /* For sub-labels under the text boxes */

    .form-sub-label {
        font-size12px !important;
