    How to disable Field Highlighting Effect?

    Asked by fuelblue on August 09, 2013 at 02:24 PM


    I've noticed that whenever I fill out any of my forms embedded on my web sites, the background color of the item I am inputting changes. Not the end of the world, but it looks a little weird. Is there a way to stop that? Possibly some custom CSS?

    I've added a screenshot below where the "Name" input has been selected, and you can see the background changes to a light yellow.

    Hi Bobby,

    Yes, you can disable that from the form settings.
