Names disappearing on registration form

Hi EE,

My program registrants have started sending me comments that when they’re trying to register, their names and email addresses disappear from the boxes (it is working, but most people are bailing before the registration button). Here’s the website:

I’m using ElegantThemes Nova theme – is this potentially a conflict with the theme?

Many thanks,
Beth Campbell Duke

Hello Beth,

The text that is being entered is actually staying in the field. You just can’t see it, because it is white. 🙂

On line 102 of your theme’s style.css file, the text color is set to white. If you change it to something else, the text will show.

Just fyi – I used Google’s web developer tool to find this. (Get this by pressing ctrl+shift+i in Google Chrome.)
You can also use the Firebug extension for Firefox.

Thanks so much, Jonathan – and for the pointer about the ‘debugging’. This DIY is becoming very educational.
