Hi there.  I am building a site and using the woocommerce framework.  I have changed the inside coloring of the form product search field but need to change out the color inside that text field.  I've tried the following but it's not working:

#s {
background-color: #D6B874;
color: #000000;
}

My link is here: http://149.47.192.189/

Any ideas experts?

This shows how to attach the styling to the id attribute of the search box.  Please see: http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_cowebmaster.php

<style type="text/css">
#search_field {

}
</style>

<body>
<div id="search" class="grid_6 prefix_18">

By way of explanation, the # is used in the style sheet to attach style to an id= attribute.   The . (dot) is used to attach style to a class.  Each document can have many duplicate class names, but id names must be unique.

This will get much easier if your document validates correctly!

Okay, i've had to use this to get the text color to change when the mouse clicks inside the textfield:

#searchform #s {
background-color: #D6B874;
color: #000;
}

However, what can I add to the editor so that the text color is also #000? Right now it appears gray.

You need to style the placeholder text specificaly for that so

::-webkit-input-placeholder {color: #000;}
:-moz-placeholder {color: #000;}
::-moz-placeholder {color: #000;}
:-ms-input-placeholder {color: #000;}
