ShortStack Tips & Tricks

Don't like the default color of the field labels (name, email address etc) in your Custom Form or Promotion on your ShortStack application?

It's an easy change if you know the CSS needed.  

Just add this line of CSS to your CSS Editor within your Tab Designer: label{color:#FFFFFF;}

The above CSS will change the color of your labels to white.

To use a different color other than white, replace "FFFFFF" with a different Hex Value.

For example, to use indigo instead of white, the code would look like this: label{color:#4B0082;}

For a handy Hex Value chart, check out this guide from

This chart sorts different colors by color name, so it's a great guide if you're new to Hex Values.
