[Plugin: Contact Form 7] Text Boxes Invisible (2 posts)

    Using Contact Form 7 version 2.1.
    Contact form works, but text boxes do not appear. From reading old posts, this has been a problem in the past and was fixed with updates. I'm using the latest versions of WP 2.9.1 and Contact Form 7, but still have the problem. Anyone else? Any suggestions other than using another form?

    <update> I've discovered that if I switch to the Default Theme, the boxes appear. Obviously, something is incompatible between my theme and Contact Form 7...but what?

    The theme I am using defines the contact form text boxes in the css stylesheet. The css class class:text must be added to each field descriptor as below.

    Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name class:text]
    Your Email (required)
    [email* your-email class:text]
    Subject
    [text your-subject class:text]
    Your Message
    [textarea your-message class:text]
    [submit class:submit "Send Message"]

    Without adding class:text to each field, the text boxes did not appear.
