    Form fields are faint

    Asked by bchapp on February 05, 2014 at 05:29 PM

    Is there a way to darken the color of the form field box outlines? They seem to be very faint.  Also, is there a way to color the inside of the text box when the person puts thier cursor over the area to show it is "active"?

    Hi, you can accomplish that by injecting some CSS code into your form. You cand inject the following code to your form:


    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-radio-other-input, .form-checkbox-other-input, .form-captcha input {

        padding: 3px;

        margin-left: 0px;

        border: 2px solid rgb(0, 0, 0);

        font-size: 1em;

        line-height: 1.071em;

        box-shadow: 0px 1px 2px rgb(238, 238, 238) inset;


    So it will look like this: 

    On regards coloring the inside of the text box when the person puts their cursor to show active, I will find a code to make it to show active. I will come with it later on.
