[resolved] [Plugin: custom tables] Problem with Search Button CSS (9 posts)

    First of all, a pretty good plugin. It wasn't too difficult to get it to work. Although, I did have problems importing data so I had to manually imported the data through phpMyAdmin.

    I'm having problems with configuring/customizing the Search button and text area. It seems like no matter what I enter in the CSS file, it doesn't change anything. I would like to send you a pic of what the issue is so that you can get a better idea.

    Thanks.

    Hi slui

    The question is how your Theme is managing the CSS definitions. Therefor many often you will need to use the tag !important that you will see any change, like:

    color: #EFEFEF !important; text-decoration: none !important;

    Try it.

    Search button is very diffrent. Search Form will be taken 1:1 from Theme and not generated itself in my plugin! I replaced only the style from search field what you can modify it. But indeed all themes are handling the Search button diffrent and add another style into it, what makes it for me impossible to change it.

    You will need to edit there the themes search button!

    I will try do invest again in this section, perhaps I find a solution.

    Hi Slui

    If you dont find the fix, write me. You can try to add the search with text="" (empty) then it will NOT display the "Search:".

    Then it should work.

    Hi Stefan,

    I'm not that well versed in code so I will make an attempt to find a a fix. How do I remove the text "Search:" from the text property. Where would i find it?

    Hi Stefan,

    I took another closer look and it seems that your search function has adopted the theme's search function (not entirely). The theme uses an image for a search button whereas you have implemented an actual button (at least that is what I think).

    I tried to not include your search function and used the theme search function, but the theme search function is not able to search the data in the tables.

    I'm still at a loss as how to fix this. :(

    send me your theme with email, then I can send you the fix.
    The wordpress search function is NOT working with the table content, you will need to use the plugin search function instead, which I can fix ;)

    Send me mail to the mailadess

    With at and point inside ;)
