  • Changes to the custom CSS in the plugin options, do not seem to take effect!

    What am I missing? Tried changing several different things in the custom css area and saved them and nothing seems to take effect!

    Form is really spread out – needs to be formatted better but can’t figure out how!
    Here is a screenshot –

    Can you help?

    It’s possible the theme’s CSS is forcing the styling. Can you send over the URL to the website so I can take a look at the CSS code that’s taking priority in there.

    Thanks for the response! It is on a staging site and don’t want it to get indexed so going to write in the dot com – https://ohmeohmyblog-wpo8374.bigscoots-staging(dot com)/about/

    Would love to be able to remove the grey background and just have the input boxes and have the borders be black and the text be all black. And then compact it down so it is not so spread out.

    Thanks so much!

    It’s wrapped in pre tags. Go to edit the content for that page and switch the editor to “Text” ( top right ).

    Then find the shortcode, if it’s wrapped in pre tags, remove them.

    Hey thanks so much! That did it!

    How would I change the border color of the input boxes to black (from light grey)?
    (I know very little about CSS and tried to change the color codes in the 2 spots where I see it in the custom css but that didn’t seem to do anything)

    Thank you!

    You can add this in WP admin > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

    #simple-contact-form input[type="text"], #simple-contact-form textarea {
        border-color: #000;

    Thanks for all your help. Really appreciate it!
