  3. Hello Usama,
    By default labels and input colors are inherited form the theme but you may override it by pasting the following CSS in your theme CSS file.

    For Labels :
    .erf-label-top.erf-container .erf-form label[class$=”-label”]{ color : #fff; }

    For Input Values :
    .erf-style-rounded-corner .erf-form .form-control{ color : red;}

  4. Hello. After deleting a registrants submission, that registrant is no longer able to re-submit a new submission (they get an error that the email address already exists). How do we delete users’ credentials so that they may resubmit on the form?

    1. Our plugin supports two types of forms. 1. Registration Form 2. Contact/Other form
      Registration form creates a new user under WordPress along with accepting the information. If you delete the submission, corresponding user won’t get deleted from the WordPress system. This is the reason, user is unable to re-register. There are two options:
      1. Ask users to login and then register on the same form. Our plugin provides a login section which can be displayed along with the registration form. Setting can be found under Form Dashboard->General Settings->Enable Login Form
      2. Use contact type of form.
