    DropDown text is remaining white even though I updated to black

    Asked by elizabethmount on November 05, 2015 at 01:44 PM

    Please help - people are trying to fill out my form and they can't see the text they are putting in. I have changed it to black text/white background, and it is not updating.

    I have checked your form and I can see the issue.

    To resolve this you can add the following CSS code:

    select.form-dropdown {
        color: black;

    Now if you wish to have it follow the style of other elements on your form, you can instead add the following CSS:

    select.form-dropdown {
        background-color: #eb6841;

    - This will give it the reddish background so white text is show nicely (white).

    You can add either one or both of those to the form (in which case it will be reddish background with black text) and you can do that by following these steps: Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Do remember to add them at the bottom of all other CSS code (after all the other - if any) and you should see the change as soon as you save your form.

    Please do let us know how it goes :)
