  1. I need to change the color of the placeholder text. I have changed the color of the fields and now you can’t see the color of the placeholder.
    Also I have made the form two columned and I would like to get rid of the white line between the Welcome Introduction and the Fields.

    • Hi Karen, thank you for your question. It is going to be a bit challenging because you have a background image. What you can try on one field first is to remove the background-color and add opacity: 0.18 !important;. Play around with the opacity value until you find what you want.

      Let me know if you need more help.

      • Hi Karen, disregard my previous solution, because if you set field text color to white then the opacity will make it invisible. Unless you change the text color to a different color then you might be able to use the opacity value.

        If it doesn’t work then you might have to remove the inline text placeholder altogether. If not it will be very challenging to make it work.


  2. Hi! Thanks for this flexible contact form. I have just one question. How can I add a placeholder to an input field that uses the date picker?

    • Hi Alexander, the placeholder currently does not function with the date field. You might like to make a request in the plugin forum.

      Kind regards
