  • Hi there,

    I’m using the Formidable plugin on a new website that I’m developing and the submit button has simply vanished. Well, not really, it’s just that the text is white and it seems to have lost its background information. This is the offending page:

    As you can see, at the bottom of the form the submit button just can’t be seen.

    I think this must be a CSS clash with some of the theme’s own CSS. In the file default.css there is this section of code:

    input, textarea {
    	border:1px solid transparent;
    	-webkit-transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
    	-moz-transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
    	-ms-transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
    	-o-transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
    	transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;

    Which seems to be where the Submit button is getting its styling from. The above code used to include an extra line:


    However I had to remove said background color for other styling on the site and I really can’t put it back in (if I do I get black boxes around other images). I’ve tried overriding this CSS within the plugin itself but it just doesn’t seem to work.

    Any help would be massively appreciated. I’ve been bashing my head against a brick wall with this one for ages and haven’t made any progress.

    Thanks in advance,

    The styling in the lite version of Formidable doesn’t make any changes to your submit button. It leaves it to however your theme has styled it. If you would like to style the submit button without making changes to your theme style.css, you can upgrade to the pro version.

    If you are not interested in upgrading, please contact your theme author to fix this problem.
