    Validation message colors

    Asked by mitmuseum on October 20, 2016 at 02:52 PM

    This css changes the colors of the boxes that the validation error messages appear in. But it does not change the color of the little triangle or the text at the bottom. How do I change those as well?


    .form-line-error .form-error-message {

        background : #C5C531;



    .form-error-arrow {

        border-bottom-color : #C5C531;



    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input), .form-line-error textarea {

        border : 1px solid #C5C531;

        -moz-box-shadow : 0 0 3px #C5C531;

        -webkit-box-shadow : 0 0 3px #C5C531;

        box-shadow : 0 0 3px #C5C531;



    .form-validation-error {

        border : 1px solid #6C9DBE;

        -moz-box-shadow : 0 0 2px red;

        -webkit-box-shadow : 0 0 2px #6C9DBE;

        box-shadow : 0 0 2px #6C9DBE;



    .form-error-arrow {

        color : #6C9DBE;

    Please try to inject the below custom css code:

    .form-line-error .form-error-message .form-error-arrow {

        border-bottom-color: #C5C531!important;


    .form-button-error {

    color: #C5C531!important;
