The home page´s searchbox in our site doesn´t show properly even when the changes and modifications under the "System>Configuration>"OurTheme"options>Theme Design" Values are set to different colors. After refreshing the page, searchbox keeps the same appearance. I know it´s not recognizing the changes made, any ideas?

I leave a screenshot on how does the box looks like all the time, customers keep complaining it can´t be seen. Please HELP

  • When trying to make a search at the homepage, text is almost invisible. i tried changing color and opacity values under magento´s backend configuration settings, but doesn´t recognize changes made. Commented Apr 1, 2016 at 20:42

Try this,

In your css add below code

header#header .form-search input { color: #000 !important; }

or find this

header#header .form-search input {
    width: 89%;
    border: none;
    background: none;
    float: right;
    font-size: 1em;
    color: #F5F5F5;
    height: 15px;
    padding: 2px;
    transition: border-color .8s ease;
    -moz-transition: border-color .8s ease;
    -webkit-transition: border-color .8s ease;
    -o-transition: border-color .8s ease;

and command or delete color

 color: #F5F5F5;

I hope it will work


In your skin's CSS file, add the following to the bottom:

header#header .form-search input { color: #000 !important; }
