    Why the text inside the text box does not show?

    Asked by safeprograms on June 22, 2016 at 12:02 PM



    The full name, email and phone number fields do not show what is being typed in.  The coupon code box does however.


    I've tried changing the text box background thinking this would have the text show white and the text still does not show.

    I just checked your form and I see that Font color is white so that's why you can not see the text typed in:

    You can do that if you go to Designer in your form builder:

    If you change your font color to any other than white you will be able to see the text.

    Do get back to us if the issue persists.

    Thank you!

    Well... when I changed the inside of the text box to BLACK the text still did not show up.  And why does the text show up (in black) on the coupon code box? 


    Also, I just changed the text, as you suggested, to black, and it still does not show up.


    Other suggestions?

    color: red !important;
