trouble making the comments background area white

  1. Hi.

    For some reason on my site I'm getting transparency though my comments paragraph text.

    can I set something in the advanced area that can make it stay white like the others?

    Can you point out specifically where you are talking about this issue? I went to your Contact us page, and I see a inset shadow, but I don't see anything that would be transparency that I could help fix.

  3. The issue is coming from this in your theme's stylesheet. It's difficult to tell which stylesheet and which line exactly since it is minimized. But this is where the transparency is being set:

    /* Line 27 */
    input.text_input, textarea.textarea
      border-top-width: 1px;
      border-right-width-value: 1px;
      border-bottom-width: 1px;
      border-left-width-value: 1px;
      border-top-style: solid;
      border-right-style-value: solid;
      border-bottom-style: solid;
      border-left-style-value: solid;
      border-top-color: #cccccc;
      border-right-color-value: #cccccc;
      border-bottom-color: #cccccc;
      border-left-color-value: #cccccc;
      border-image-source: none;
      border-image-slice: 100% 100% 100% 100%;
      border-image-width: 1 1 1 1;
      border-image-outset: 0 0 0 0;
      border-image-repeat: stretch stretch;
      background-color: transparent;
      background-image: url("/striking/wp-content/themes/striking/images/input_bg.png");
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      background-attachment: scroll;
      background-position: 0px 0px;
      background-clip: border-box;
      background-origin: padding-box;
      background-size: auto auto;
      border-top-left-radius: 1px;
      border-top-right-radius: 1px;
      border-bottom-right-radius: 1px;
      border-bottom-left-radius: 1px;

    You can override that with this:

    body .gform_wrapper form .gform_body textarea {
       background: #fff!important;
