I have several users added to a group permissions. I can see their names if I roll the cursor over check boxes, but otherwise, their names are not displayed. Anyone know why this would happen?

  • I guess some custom CSS classes are applied to your page. because of that the names are not visible. check if there is any custom CSS added. Jul 26, 2019 at 12:15

Use google chrome developer console tool and see what css attributes are being applied on any one row. I think of below possibilities.

  • Color of your front text is same as background(white or gray based on alternate row)
  • text are being hidden due to css attributes and displays only when on hover.
  • check for any css customization being done.

Definitely it has something to do with css attribute where text is getting hidden.

  • Thanks! I do have a <span style="display: none">. I'm not too keen on how to override a <span style> in Sharepoint. Any ideas?

  • it is OOTB view right? I think there would be some javascript which would be running to make span as display:none... Jul 26, 2019 at 12:21
  • check for any customization. Jul 26, 2019 at 12:21
  • I found it. I had it set to display: none for .ms-tableCell .ms-verticalAlignTop. Thanks!
