Remove shadow from text fields?

  1. I am just getting my head round CSS and have been making some good changes. However my forms continue to have these heavy grey shadows in the top of the text field boxes. Its probably hidden somewhere in the evolveadvance theme I'm using but since this theme doesn't have a style.css file so I'm having a devil of a time isolating it.

    Any advice?

  2. The background image is defined on line 376 of the base.css stylesheet.

    [css]
    input[type="text"],
    input[type="password"],
    textarea {
    	-moz-border-radius:5px;
    	padding:10px 8px;
    	font-weight:bold;
    	border:2px solid #fff;
    	background:#f9f9f9 url('../images/input-text-back.png') top left repeat-x;
    }

    If you disable that, the heavy shadows go away.

  3. Thanks thats fixed it up nicely! Can I ask what software are you using in that screenshot to track it down?

  4. That software in the screenshot is Firebug.

    Thanks for the update that the CSS solution worked for you.

  5. I use the Firebug Firefox extension as Chris mentioned 99% of the time but most of the browsers have similar, built-in "developer tools" that you can access from their menus. Most of the time you can right-click on an element in the page and choose "inspect element" from the context menu and it will launch the developer tools as well.
