Captcha input text color

    I need to change the text color for the captcha input field. Right now it's black text on black background so you can't see what you're typing. I added the class .captchanew to my main stylesheet and put that in the custom css for the catpcha form element, but nothing has changed at all.

    Thanx in advance

  2. It's not normally black on black. It's apparently inheriting from your theme somewhere. Can you post a URL to your form page so we can check it out?

    Sure here it is:

    You'll have to get to step 3 to see it. Yes it's inheriting...the custom css didn't seem to work, but i could be missing something.

  4. can't seem to get to get to step 3 for some reason.. when I press next from page 2 I get kicked to a non-form pageā€¦ something seems amiss.

  6. Okay, see it now, was a little confused.

    Try adding this to the end of your theme stylesheet..

    [css]
    body .gform_wrapper div.recaptcha_input_area input#recaptcha_response_field {
    	color: #fff !important
    }

    u da man! Thank you so much!

    Can you explain how the custom css thing in the actual form element works though? I added a css class there but nothing took...would love to know for perpetuity. Thanx!

  8. The class name is added to the list item that contains the form controls. If you want to target the input in there specifically, you would just need to use CSS inheritance to drill down to the element.

    example: if you added "mycustomclassname" in the CSS Class Name field and wanted to change the input background color.

    [css]
    body .gform_wrapper li.gfield.mycustomclassname div.ginput_container input {
         background-color: red
    }
