Submit Button Blank

  1. Hi
    my Submit button is blank and I can't figure out how to get the "submit" text to show up. Is this a problem with my theme colors?
    Here's the page: http://atailtotell.com/newwebsite/adoption-information-2/adoption-application-2/
    Thanks!

  2. Hey Melody, there is a style coming in from your theme that is causing the text to be white there. Try adding this into your theme's stylesheet:

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper .button {
    color: #333 !important;
    }

  3. Yes, this is a problem with your theme colors. The submit button does have text associated, it says the default "Submit" for the value of the input button. See this screenshot of the HTML output for that page:

    The problem is styles in your themes stylesheet (style.css) around line 530. The code is using the class .button but not targeting it via some sort of container which means it's being applied to anything that uses that class, no matter the container... which includes Gravity Forms. See this screenshot:

    It actually has CSS in place to set a background using an image which may make the white text be visible... but either the image it references isn't there or it's simply a white background png file. Not sure.

    Edit your themes stylesheet and set the color to something other than white. Right now it's being set to white on white.
