I am running a 9.x site and want to change the text in the search field and stylize it.  I found a link on how to do this on a 7.x site but the files have changed and are not the same with new versions of DNN.

Does anyone know where to change the text (Search...) to something else and stylize the new text?

Thanks,
Dave

I found the file to modify to actually change the search field text, Search.ascx.resx, but I don't know how to go about stylizing it.

The simple answer is that you adjust the site's CSS to change the styles. There are several ways to do this.

First, you can apply a CSS class to the Search Skin Object that is in your site's theme (skin) files. Then you can define the styles for that class (and, probably) sub-classes. If you visit http://10poundgorilla.com/Dnn-Skinnin... you'll see how you can customize the Search.

The other alternative is to use your browser's developer tools to see the styles that exist currently. Then, you can edit the site's CSS files to overwrite the existing ones.
