How to Change Active Text Field Color in Form Block

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.matey.app/support

Hi! I'm trying to figure out how to change the active text field color when typing in the text box in a Form Block. Currently, I changed the text field color to dark gray #262626, but when typing in it, it changes color to white. I've attached a screenshot below. How do I prevent this with CSS? My template is Stanton. Thanks in advance for your help!

Is it possible to custom code the colour of the border to change when the text field is active? 

So when unselected it remains black, but when active and typing in it the borders change to #fecb00

@CIS Add the following to Design > Custom CSS.

.form-wrapper .field-list .field .field-element:focus {

  border-color: #fecb00 !important;

Let us know how it goes.


The first part of this thread is exactly what I needed *awesome*. I tried this second part of the code but it hasn't worked on my end. The border around the active text boxes is still black (see below). I'd like them to be transparent. Any help would be appreciated!
