I'm using Debut on my Basic Shopify account. I have added a new background on the password protected page that is white. The default text on the password page is white. This causes the text to be unreadable. How do I change the font color?

At the top of your layout/password.liquid file right above



Add this code:

    h1, h2, h3, p, li, label, span, small {color: #000;}

Change #000 to whatever hex color you want. Here's a link if you need help finding a hex color:

Hey, there!


Jason here from Shopify Support.


The answer @Eric_K_offers is brilliant. Since you're using themes made by Shopify, you can also edit the font color right from the theme editor.


You can do so by Shopify admin > Online Store > Themes > Customize. In the theme editor, select Password page on the top. On the left-hand side menu, click on Theme settings then Colors.


In the Color section, the font color you want to edit is at the Body text.


Once finished editing, don't forget to go to the top-right corner and click on Save.


If there’s anything else I can help you out with, please don’t hesitate to reply back and I’d be happy to help out!


All the best,

Is there a way to add a transparent background to the text? I'd like it to make a little easier to read. The white background is busy. The black text is still difficult to read. 


You're the best. Thank you so much for the help!

Probably the best way to do this would be to take the original image and modify it in graphics software like Photoshop or GIMP. You just need to set a white layer on top at 60-70% opacity and it should create more contrast.
