text form boxes not showing

  1. Hi,
    I just installed Graviy Forms. The problem I am having is the page does not show the text box border for the client to type into.
    This is the page. Any suggestions?

  2. Yep, your theme is doing it. Look at the common.css file in your theme ( line 20 ) and you'll see this..

    * {
        background-attachment: scroll;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
        border: 0 none;
        font-family: inherit;
        font-size: 100%;
        font-style: inherit;
        font-weight: inherit;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        vertical-align: baseline;

    If you notice, the "border: 0 none;" being applied as a wildcard to every element on the page.. that means your form inputs as well. The problem is they threw that in there, but never re-defined the borders for the elements that are supposed to actually have them.

    My suggestion would be to remove the border property from that rule. That will take care of your form problem, and probably others you'll encounter down the road with a blanket rule like that.
