Custom Search Box is a simple little module that gives a user with Administer search privileges an easy way to change the appearance of the search box used by many themes. This is done by additional settings added to the '?q=admin/settings/search' page. I created this module because as a newcomer, like many many others, I did not like the text 'Search this site'. In my research on how to get rid of it, I found many other users looking for the same thing plus some of the other features I have included. This may not be a great module for the advanced members of this community, but it will surely help out the beginners. It will also cut down on the requests from the beginners on how to do this.
This module has been deprecated in favor of Custom Search module.
