Issue with custom css with select element in a form

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.technologytrainedbyteens.org/new-page-2

Hello,

I am trying to change the font of the select elements of the form using custom CSS (in my form, where it says January and 1), but I found a confusing result. When I was using the inspect element to find the class to change, I found this ".sqs-block-form .field-list select". The issue is that CSS classes cannot have a space in it. As it is, when I paste those classes exactly into custom css, it does not work. But, when I had a hyphen in to make it ".field-list-select", and add a hyphen in using inspect element, it works fine. How could I make it so that it is permanently fixed?

Thanks for your help.

Class names as well as other selector types don't have spaces but selectors do. When constructing a ruleset the selector is a hierarchy that tells the browser how to get to what you want to change. A kind of address if you will, like 1234 SE Any Street. 12 34 SE Any Street doesn't make sense but the former does.

Try adding to Home > Design > Custom Css

.form-item.field select {
  color: blue;
}

Hope it helps
