    Remove theme CSS around text fields

    Asked by builttosave on August 25, 2016 at 12:51 PM

    Hi, I applied a theme to one of my forms and can't seem to change/remove this border that appears when you click into a text field. I've tried multiple variations of these codes below and to no avail I can't remove it:

    .form-all: focus, input: focus {

    border: none !important;

    outline: none !important;

    -webkit-box-shadow: none !important;

    -moz-box-shadow: none !important;

    box-shadow: none !important;



    What the form looks like before you click a field:

    What the form likes like when you click the field:


    Is there a way to override CSS from the theme? I would like to remove that greenish border/shadow completely so it stays the same as if it were inactive.

    Please try to inject the below css code:

    .form-textbox:focus, .form-textarea:focus, .form-dropdown:focus {

        border : 1px solid #CCCCCC !important;

        border-radius : 20px;

        box-shadow : none!important;
