    Is there any way to remove the gradient from the drop down menu?

    Asked by JeffreyMurrayPhotography on April 04, 2012 at 02:00 PM

    I am looking to have it be a solid color.  Also, how do I change the color of the inputted text in my form and of the options for the drop down menu. I am using the XXL theme. Thanks!

    Are you referring drop down menus or form collapse elements? In the XXL theme I can see no gradients in the drop down menus (at least, not in Chrome) whereas form collapse elements do have a gradient, albeit a very subtle one, from light gray at the top to a slightly darker gray at the bottom, as illustrated below:

    If you were referring to form collapse elements, please see our colleague's (Neil's) second post in Can I edit the style of form collapse headings?
