Support » Fixing WordPress » Cant see text on comment form

  • Hello everyone,

    I have everything working great, but I can’t get the Name, Email , and URL part of the comment form to show the cursor and what I am typing. The text is there, but I just cant see it as I type. If I click and highlight it I see it. I think it has to do with the people not being logged in, because when I am logged in it does not make me enter those fields. I also have a file called comments-original.php, why is there 2 files for comments? Here is the code for comments.php. Thanks for any help!

    Edit style.css and add color:#606060; to:

    .Comments .Form .TextField {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
        border: 1px solid #DDE2EB;
        display: block;
        font-size: 11px;
        padding: 4px;

    Changed it, but its still not working.

    Would you like to try again? I can’t see that CSS on your site.

    This is what it looks like. I changed it and pressed the update file button. Does this look right?
