Branding of MySite CSS

  Asked By: Chelsea    Date: Aug 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1616

I am branding the CSS file for the mysite areas on a portal
implemenation and have run into a little problem. For some reason I
am having trouble getting the color of the ms-searchbox area to
change colors. I have rebranded this on the portal but for some
reason the owspers.css is being a pain in the rear.

I have changed the css to the following in owspers.css but the color
is NOT changing on the advanced search bar...

.ms-searchbox {
background-color: white;
font-family: verdana;
font-size: 8pt;
.ms-searchform {
background-color: #c6cfe5;
font-family: verdana;
font-size: 8pt;
.ms-searchcorner {
background-color: #c6cfe5;
/* background-image: url("/_layouts/images/srchcrnr.gif"); */
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: left top;

If you will notice I commented out the searchcorner's corner image
but it is still showing up. Maybe I am overriding/editing the wrong
classes? anyhow any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think I might have been working with a cached page. Fixed now.

OK, one more problem. I changed  the background for the entire my site area  (I also applied this to the ows.css and sps.css). When I go into the edit profile area where it says Bio: the textarea is using a blue background as well. However, the rest of the textboxes for single lines of text are showing  up as white. I messed with a few css  classes by adding background-color:white; but it did not change the textbox. Any idea how to fix this without unghosting the page? The textboes don't show up on the actual editprofile.aspx page in the 60 hive because they use a webcontrol to put the profile properties on the page.

I presume that you have this fixed and this may be too elementary but,
the server control that places the profile properties on the page
outputs HTML that you can see if you choose View Source on the page in
the browser.
