Quizzes: Change Placeholder Styles for Matrix Sorting Questions

Updated 1 month ago
by Dave Warfel

For matrix sorting questions, when you drag an answer into a corresponding box, there is a placeholder that appears to indicate you can release the mouse and drop the answer into the area. By default, this placeholder has a light blue background with a 2px dashed red border.

To change the background & border of this placeholder, you can use the following CSS:

body .wpProQuiz_content .wpProQuiz_placehold {
	background-color: #fff !important;
	border: 2px dashed #000 !important;
}

Change #000 and #fff to any color you’d like.

All CSS code should either be placed in a child theme’s main CSS file (typically style.css), or the Additional CSS area of the WordPress Customizer.
