Custom Google Search

I was successful installing and getting the Custom Search Bar to appear on my site. However, no letters appear to show up when I type in the search bar. I've tried, in vain, fooling around with colors, etc. but no luck. Same thing happens on another site. Please advise. Probably simple. Thank you. Doug

    Hi Douglas,

    Thanks for granting Support Access. I logged in and found this is happening because of your currently active theme. If you change it to any default WordPress theme, it will work.

    However, you can fix the issue in your current theme with following custom CSS Code:

    input.gsc-input {
      color: #000000 !important;

    You can add this to a theme's stylesheet, in a child theme, or using a plugin like My Custom CSS.

    This will show black text inside the search box. If you want to change text color, you can replace #000000 with any color code you want. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    Please let us know if you have any confusion or if you are stuck at any point. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
