Support » Plugin: Benchmark Email Lite » Changing the color of the subscribe button

  • When used with my company’s theme the Subscribe button has white text and a light gray background. This is difficult to read and doesn’t pass the accessibility standards we must meet. If i do not have access to modifying the theme, it there a way to change the color of the button?

    Hello @rrlasson. Short of modifying the theme or child theme’s native button colors within the widget sidebar area, you can override the button styles with CSS rules. Most themes come with a custom css box in their settings area where you can insert CSS rules. If not, there are plugins such as Simple Custom CSS which will give you a WP Admin panel for applying custom CSS rules. There are many possible style properties that can be applied to buttons, so you may need to research further styles that work for your site. I’ll use a couple of simple font and background color properties in this example:

    .benchmarkemaillite-subscribe button {
    	color: red;
      	background-color: white;

    Thanks Sean! I work at a University and they lock down any custom CSS stuff, but I will pass it along to the developer.
