    Edit the text color of the Container style property under Form-Type Overlays.

    That is definitely the place, but its not changing the black text.

    You're trying to change the black text, correct? That should be getting it. I just tested it.

    Okay, can you highlight what text you want to change in red? That will really help.

    Okay, yeah, what I posted should be getting it.

    You must have hard-coded CSS somewhere.

    This is what you're editing, right? That's what controls it.

    Yeah. It just wont change. The bold button works, italicize button works. But the color of text doesnt for some reason. I know if I change the building blocks, it changes stuff throughout the forum that i don't realize. Is there another way to change the text color that i might have done by accident?

    Try changing it on a completely default style. If it works on there, then it's probably some of that CSS you have that's causing it.
