SharePoint Search Box in Confluence 5.7 Displays White Text on White Background

Symptoms

You cannot see the text you type into the Confluence/SharePoint search box unless you highlight it. The search still works, however.

Diagnosis

The search box background is white and so is the text.

Workaround

The workaround is to use custom HTML to change the SharePoint search text box to blue:

  1. Go to Confluence Admin>Custom HTML
  2. Insert the following in the box labeled "At the End of the Head":
<style>
#sharepoint-search-query {
background-color: #194068 
}
</style>

Resolution

There is no content with the specified labels
