Hey,

I'd like to change the color of the textfield (search box).

I added in "Header Area" --> Style & edit HEADER area --> Search box

color: #00C609;
background: #00C609;

However, the result is that not the textfield itself changes but only the canvas around the textfield.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thx

add
HTML Code:
.searchbox-form input {color: #00ffff;}
to the CSS Inserts - you might want to use a different color

Thanks for your advice.

However, this only changes the font color. How can I change the color of the textfield itself? I'd like to change it to black and use a white font color.

so just add 'background' syntax to it. take a look at w3schools.com/css for the full syntax
