    Change the Color of the Placeholder

    Asked by HeatherWalk on November 06, 2016 at 12:25 AM

    Attempted to change placeholder color in Text Area with this JotForm recommended code that works in the editor but not in the preview or in the major browsers. Is there an updated code?

     

    *::-webkit-input-placeholder {

       color: #93bcd4;

    }

     

    *:-moz-placeholder {

       color: #93bcd4;

    }

     

    *::-moz-placeholder {

       color: #93bcd4;

    }

     

    *:-ms-input-placeholder {

       color: #93bcd4;

    }

    Thanks for checking but by next morning I found the solution posted by another colleague. The missing code was:  .form-textarea {color: #93bcd4 !important; }
