Editing Waitlist Signup Form

Could you tell me where I can edit the Wait-list signup popup form?

Also – the promo code input field on the purchase page is white and the text is also white. Is there a place where I can change this?

Thank you!

The wording can be changed via a custom function. The documentation has some example code:

Form inputs are generally styled by your WordPress theme. If your theme has settings for changing form input colors, you’d change those. Otherwise you can add some CSS to a custom stylesheet or into the Additional CSS panel in the site’s Appearance > Customize menu. Here’s an example of some CSS that will add some additional styling to the promo code field:

#ee-spco-payment_options-reg-step-form-payment-options-before-payment-options #ee-promotion-code-input{
color: #777;
border-radius: 0;
padding-left: 140px;

Thanks for the info!

I added the provided code and messed around with the colors and it didn’t change anything. I even added “!important” tags. Is there a different code I could use that would work to make the promo entry box more visible?
I’ve included screenshots so you can see what it looks like.

The image inserter didn’t work but here is a link to the images:

It does change something. You can also add:

border: 1px solid #000;

to give the border at least 1px width.

The code with the edited border section does add a border, but the interior text “Promotion Code” is outside of the border by about 5 pixels. I’ve increased the padding on the left but it doesn’t change anything. Please let me know how I can fix this?

You probably need to use the correct selectors, e.g.

#ee-spco-payment_options-reg-step-form-payment-options-before-payment-options #ee-promotion-code-input{
color: #777;
bordee-promotion-code-input-lbler-radius: 0;
padding-left: 150px;

label#ee-promotion-code-input-lbl {
margin: 10px 0 0 8px;
