re: the contact name and email are showing up in white and I would like to change this to black like the other fonts.
The font color for the links would be inherited from the theme when using the Default template, so the white font must be a setting within the theme. If you can share a link to the page so I can take a look I will be able to provide you with a bit of CSS to force the link color in the template.
re: I have only entered two records for a test right now but it appears that all these records will continue on one long page?
If you are using the Default template, then yes, that would be the case. If you need pagination then you need one of the premium templates.
re: I just found out how to show letter index’s at the top of the contacts but, is there a way to show only the letter you have clicked on by chance?
Sorry, no, there is not.
Hoe that thoroughly answers your questions, let me know.
