    How do I change the default search area background from white to a different color.
    Search area I'm talking about: http://screencloud.net/v/jhFE

    I can't seem to find where in style properties I would do this, there are so many different sections.

    Assuming its Style Properties -> Forms -> just not sure where in here.

    It's controlled by @textCtrlBackground in the color palette.

    That's what controls it, unless you changed that in Style Properties > Forms > Text Control.

    That section controls the pop out sections under the search box. Not the background of the search box it seems.
    Either way I got it done by adding #QuickSearch .textCtrl { background-color: #ebebeb;} to EXTRA.CSS
