I have found other solutions for changing text color from white to something else. However, I have not been able to successfully implement these solutions. I am using coda.
In firebug I was able to find some text color code that when I changed to 000000, changed the text to black; but a refresh made it go back to white.
I use wordpress 3.0.4 with Widescreen and the newest Contact Form 7.
How the form text could be white in the first place makes no sense.
If you can help, I appreciate it; please treat me like a dummy and explain in the simplest terms possible.
