I am using "ShowCase Dark" Theme for website
when writing a new message to user, subject text color is ok
however, messsage body text cannot be seen.
so, I need to change message body text color to black (ffffff)

I have tried editing CSS, and theme colors from admin panel.
it have no effect and nothing works

I need it only for mailbox chat messages.

I left message for theme developer - got no reply.

Any one have an idea where this can be set?

CSS file attached

This was where I was talking about. Every item in the store has a forum section where the dev can communicate directly about item specific issues.


I will also send him a link to this post. I know what the issue is, but the font color needs to be fixed in the base css file. The "!important" tag is an css override. The dev could also style the message box to accommodate the font color.

You can try this. Go to admin / appearance / customize. Click on the "CSS" tab. Scroll down to the "Edit CSS" box, and past the following there. Click on "Save". These are the two things I seen on the Devs demo site. It worked using inspect element.

html body.htmlarea_styles.mailbox {
    color: #37474f !important;
.ow_mailchat_new_message .ow_mailchat_select_user .ow_mailchat_autocomplete {
    color: #0d47a1;

Hey Darryl

Thank you for replying
I'm not  CSS guy, but  have also used 'inspect element' to try and figure out what causing this issue.

I have copy-paste the code but it have no effect what so ever.
still having this problem  :(

Okay. I have made contact with the dev. He will be looking for a solution. He will probably release an update for the theme when he makes the corrections.
