Tag Search Box Style


Active member
Hello Gang,

I trying to figure these kinds of question out on my own but I'm not having luck with this one. I'm looking to change the color of the black outline on the tag search box in xengallery. I tried using the "inspect element" in chrome and it looks like it is in ".tagCloudBlock .textCtrl" but I'm not getting any search results when using "Search Template" in the ACP. Can someone tell what I'm doing wrong?

Also I believe this is what I need to adjust?

OK! I just added this bit of code to EXTRA.css Can I not search and change everything? Can some things only be changed in EXTRA.css?
.tagCloudBlock .textCtrl
    border: 1px solid #00d5ff;

The easiest way to locate most things in the ACP is via the search:

Hey Fellas,

I'm not trying to beat a dead horse I promise. I'm really trying to learn and understand this stuff. I did a search for"textCtrl" and I noticed fewer search returns than what I see in Brogan's. Is this something that will change with add-ons and themes?

The changes were accomplished with a few EXTRA.css lines but I would rather understand than just do. I cant seem to find the property that controls the box outline. Still learning. :unsure:

Thank you for your patience.

There is no style property for what you're looking for. Under CSS template named "xengallery_media_tag_cloud.css" you'll find what you're looking for.
