    How to change the color of the input text?

    Asked by sccreslife0621 on March 12, 2015 at 09:13 AM

    While creating our Residence Hall Application form we've ran into a small problem.  We cannot figure out how to change the input text color from white to black.  On our text boxes we did highlight the background color so that the white would show, unfortunately our marketing division does not approve and they would rather go to the standard white text box with a simple black font.  If you could help show me how to change this we would definitely appreciate it.

    Usually the CSS for that would be something like:

    input. form-textbox {
         color: black;
         background-color: white;

    Depending on the jotform itself it might require a bit different code.

    Could you please tell us the link to the jotform and which fields should be changed and we would be happy to assist you with the change.

    We can also assist you on a new clone to help you achieve the original look that you were after if you want so.
