Hi I’m using Genesis Framework with Genesis sample theme. I have a contact page with a blue picture background and I’d like my WP Form to sit over the top of it. I opened a conainer over the top of the picture background and uploaded my WP Form. It loads perfectly except the Text eg; Name, Place your name in the box above etc are in black and there fore are impossible to see. Is there a way I can alter the text within either WP Forms, WordPress or Gutenberg to white without having to code?
Or is there and easier way to do this that I’ve completelt overlooked?
Thanks in advance.
Excellent question. By default, most plugins (WP Forms included) inherit the styles set by your theme’s stylesheet. This includes the formatting of text like the form labels you’re describing.
The only way to modify the color of the text in the form is to edit the CSS stylesheet for your site. You can add CSS in the Customizer > Additional CSS field.
But you’ll need to know some basic CSS in order to override those styles. So, to answer your question, there is a way to alter the color of text on your site and in your forms. But it does require coding.
You can review this video for a basic introduction on how to edit the CSS for your theme:
If you’re not comfortable writing CSS, don’t sweat it. Hire a WordPress developer from Codeable and they’ll knock it out for you in no time at all for a small fee.
Hope this helps!
Great advice again Shawn. Thanks a lot. I’d never considered Codeable. Great idea.
