    Change Text Field Color

    Asked by egoidmedia on December 03, 2015 at 04:30 PM

    I'm trying to write text in one of the text fields on my form and the text is showing up as white and it almost looks transparent, is there a way to change the color of this?

    I was able to fix it for the text boxes by adding : input[type="text"] { color: black !important; } 


    But I cannot find a way to add it for the bigger text fields like the text area! Please help.

    You can change the input text color of your text area fields by adding this code to your form:


    .form-textarea.custom-hint-group, .form-textarea{
        color : black;
