    You'll need to know some CSS to do this - so you may want to take a crash-course in that if you're not familiar with it ... you might start here : http://www.w3schools.com/css/

    And you really should be using a Child Theme before you make changes like this - otherwise any adjustments you make will probably be wiped-out when the plugin updates ... see the WP codex for details : http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    If you can hack that (no pun), let me know and I'll try to help you figure out where-to-change-what...

    Hi markcorder,
    I have the same problem as xiao_coffe. The text colour is white and the bg-colour is white too.
    My problem is that even when I changed the bg-colour to grey or black, I still didn't see the text.
    Also I couldn't change the text colour at all...
    Can you help me, please?
    I'll copy the css code for you.
    I'm very sorry to ask, but really couldn't figure out what to do, even with so simple code.
    Thank you for your time to read and eventually to answer!
    Best,
    Prolet

    I'm afraid I haven't worked with Cartpauj PM since I was putting together a demo for a group some months back - but I'm sure I can find my way back to where I changed things, since I still have all the files...

    Looking at them, it seems I did NOT change this through the child-theme's regular style.css file - but rather through Cartpauj PM's own style.css file, which is found in the /wp-content/plugins/cartpauj-pm/style folder.

    Please look at this file and see changing the values in it gives you the results you want.

    Normally, I would copy any changes like this into the child-theme's main CSS file, but on occasion I've found this won't work and you need to change the plug-in's CSS file instead. This means your changes may not survive an upgrade, but perhaps marking them as !important in the child-theme's CSS would get around this...

    Let me know, and I'll be glad to offer any help I can.

    Mark~

    Hi markcorder,

    Thank you for your quick and detailed reply!
    I actually changed the style.css of the plugin and didn't have any positive result, which I found really weird.
    Then I started to look around and in the end I found the reason for my problems.
    I use WP theme Striking. This theme is more like an independent platform than typical wp theme and has endless functions/options which i still don't know yet.For that reason I didn't know I can put a colour for field text, which will ignore the style.css
    Now I can use the plugin.

    Thank you for the tip. It's very helpful for me :)
    Kind regards,
