3 years, 2 months ago
Just updated the plugin. Now the email field looks different then the other fields. Looks like it removes background or something. Here’s what it looks like: http://getit-translated.com/affiliations/. Any suggestions are welcome! Thank you!
CF7 now uses the new HTML5 input[type=”email”] for email fields and input[type=”text”] for other fields.
Looks like the CSS in your current WordPress theme does not cater for this new HTML5 email input field.
http://contactform7.com/faq/#Why_does_my_email_address_input_field_look_different gives some guidance on how make these fields look the same in your current WordPress theme.
See Styling Contact Form for a general explanation of styling CF7 forms using CSS. If you are not familiar with CSS, this page also includes some links to where you can learn CSS.
Quick and easy solution is to use [text] CF7 tag in place of [email] CF7 tag.
