    Is there supposed to be a captcha option for blog comments? I’ve seen references to this as an option and if it is an option, I’m not sure how to activate it.

    Thank you!

    Hey natespcrepair!

    You can use plugins like these:




    I would like help enabling si-captcha on my forms. I activated si-captcha, but am still getting the simple arithmetic equation on my forms. Please advise me on how to make.
    The math captcha is not working properly.

    In addition,
    I am using a child theme and the quick css is not working.

    I cannot find a way to change the styles for my heading tags. (ie. <h1>, <h2>…)

    My website is dukefootballparents.com
    Thank you.



    1) You can’t use a captcha plugin with the default theme contact form. If you really want to use recaptcha or other captcha services please purchase an advanced contact form plugin like Formidable or Gravity Forms.

    2) To change the headline colors go to Enfold > Theme Options > Advanced Styling and select the element/elements from the dropdown you want to edit. Click on “Edit Element” to change the styling.

    Best regards,


    Thank you for your advice about the contact form.

    In regards to styling, I am using a child theme, so I don’t know if that affects how to change the styling, but there is no place to change the styling for the Heading tags. I have tried to use the quick css. Also have tried the styles.css with the child theme. Do I need to make changes in the parent theme instead of the child theme?

    The options include:
    Default Background color,
    Alternate background for Menu hover, tables ted
    Primary Color: font color for links, drop caps and other elements
    Highlight Color: secondary color for link and button hover etc.
    Main Content Font color
    Border Colors



    I use Google Captcha (recaptcha) http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-captcha/
    and NoSpamNX http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nospamnx/
    Disable “pings” if you are attacked by many spam!



    If you don’t have the advanced styling option you need to update your theme files. It was added in with a recent update in addition to some other features and theme elements.

    For a quick guide on updating your theme take a look at http://www.kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/updating-your-theme-files/

    Best regards,


    Thank you! I updated the Enfold theme using FTP. I now have the advanced styling. If I am using a child theme, do I need to do anything else to update the child theme? The reason I ask is the Enfold parent theme says it is version 2.9.1. The child them says it is version 1.0.

    Thank you!



    No you don’t, technically a child theme is a ‘theme’ authored by you so there are no external updates for it (if you want to change the version of your child theme you can do it by editing the style.css file).



    Is there a way to change the Captcha value/question text color?
    Even when I change the text colors the color value for this element stays the same (white) and isn’t visible.

    I tried the code below, but it only changed the answer text color, not the value/question that’s already there
    #top .avia_ajax_form .captcha {
    color: #000000 !important;




    Please add following code to Quick CSS in Enfold theme options under General Styling tab

    label[for="avia_avia_age_1"] {
        color: red;




    Thanks that did change the color of the title above the captcha, but I was looking to change the color of the text in the formula, example 2 + 1 = ?
    The DD / MM / YY in the select a date and other elements changes correctly, however the value for the captcha does not and blends into the background.

    Thanks again



    Please try the following CSS:

    span.value_verifier_label {
    color:red !important;

    Best regards,


    works perfect, I somehow missed value_verifier_label when I inspected the element.
    Thanks a ton
