[SOLVED] Search Box font colour being overwritten?

Hello folks,

Trying to figure out where I'm going wrong! Wondering if someone could point me in the right direction...

So, I'm trying to get the search box font colour to display as #8596CC. This is what I've got in the Configure Header Area > Search Box:

color: #8596CC;
font-weight: bold;
border: 0;
width: 200px;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
and this is what I've got under the Style Forms > Form Field: Style:

font-weight: bold;
color: #8596CC;
border-top: solid 3px #8596CC;
border-left: solid 3px #8596CC;
border-right: solid 1px #8596CC;
border-bottom: solid 1px #8596CC;
It's displaying the font in bold, it's just not using the correct colour. It's pulling the colour from the change I made under Overall Style and Config. > Body, Text & Links:

font-family: arial, tahoma, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 0.8em;
color: #585858;
background: #ffffff;
Is there any way to get it to not override the colour change I specify in the Search Box styling? Or did I do something wrong? Thanks in advance!

the option ATO->Style & edit HEADER AREA->Search box is for styling the actual search box. If you want to style the text inside teh box you will have to use a CSS Insert like:
HTML Code:
div.searchbox-form input {
	color: #00ffff ;
	font-weight: bold;
