When you need the success message to display in a different font color than the copy on your form, a couple of simple steps will help make this happen!


Note: The success message always displays as the default text color used on the form. It is the form's copy text itself that needs to be changed when you want them to be different colors.


How to change the success message font color in your opt-in form

Step 1: Select a form template and click on customize.

In this example, we will customize a popup card, but following these steps, you can edit your inline form or full-page form the same way.

Step 2: Set the form copy text to the color you want the success message to be.

For example, after editing this form, let's say you want the success message to display in red, but for the form copy, you want it to be black.

To achieve that, highlight the form copy text and change the font color to red.

Step 3: Click on the Message tab and pick a pre-written success message or write your own success message.

Remember: The success message always displays as the default text color used on the form. As we changed it to red in the previous step, our success message also displays in the same red font color.

So far so good.

Step 4: Next, as you want the form copy text to be a different color, you need to highlight the paragraph text, and select the color you want it to display on your site.

In this case, you select black.

If you click on the Message tab again, you can see that it kept the success message in red. Just as you wanted. 🙌🏻

What to do if the text on your form has already been removed?

As the success message will take on the font settings of the regular text in your form if the text on your form has already been removed, here's what you'll need to do:

  1. Create a new form and keep the paragraph text.

  2. Change the color and settings of the paragraph text as described in the previous section.

  3. View the success message to verify that the text color and settings changed to match your design.

  4. If you don't want the paragraph text on the form, highlight that text and delete it from the form. Otherwise, highlight it and pick a different font color.

Note: if you delete the paragraph text from your form, you can't add it back.

Let's sum it up!

The success message always displays as the default text color used on the form. If you want to change the success message font color in your opt-in form, do the following:

  • First, change the color and settings of the main paragraph text to the one you want the success message to show.

  • Next, highlight the paragraph text and edit the color and font to the one you want it to display on your site.
