Changing the font color in comments box

Recommended Posts

The font to leave comments within my Blog is invisible because the Body Text is set to white (which I want to keep white on the rest of the site).

I have read that this can be resolved with the following strip of code:.comment-input { color: #000000 !important; }

But I’m wondering where I put it in the code?

Thank you!

Thanks for the lead, @tuanphan, unfortunately I cannot seem to get it to stick with Rally template.


Same issue as @Aptlafayette, white body font turns text in white comment box invisible and would hate to change the global body font color

Thanks, @tuanphan here is a link to blog in question

I already turned the white body font to a light grey for some contrast in comment box, but ideally would like to target comment box font color only.

Update: looks like I found the workaround:

/* comment box font color */
.squarespace-comments .new-comment-area { color: #000000 !important; }

/* comment preview font color */
.squarespace-comments .comment-btn-wrapper .btn-text { color: #000000 !important; }
