    Asked by mikerubino on July 15, 2015 at 09:59 PM

    I have a form on the website I built and if it is not filled out a white square comes up.  How do I make that white square a transparent color?

    Hi mikerubino,

    You can have the background color removed from your error messages by Injected CSS code into your form.

    Please inject the following code into your form:

    .form-line-error {

        background: none;


    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
