[resolved] Redoable theme - Search box too narrow in Firefox (4 posts)

    The sidebar Search module is too narrow and cuts off the 'h' at the end of 'Search' in the 'Type and Wait to Search' default message when viewed in Firefox. Can anyone suggest a change to the layout to fix that? Website link in my 'Member' profile.

    I'm not sure if this will work, but it's worth a try. Sometimes forms confuse me..... :)
    Find This in your CSS file

    #searchform {
            display: block;
            margin-top: 5px;
            position: relative;
    }

    Change to this

    #searchform {
            display: block;
            margin-top: 5px;
            position: relative;
            font-size: .8em;
    }

    If it doesn't work, try adding the
    font-size: .8em;
    to this area instead

    input[type=text], textarea {
            color: #444;
            margin: 0px;
            padding: 1px;
            font-size: .8em;
    }

    Let me know if that does anything.

    Thanks,

    The second method worked. I increased the font size to 1.2em. This setting seems to work in big jumps. Trying to ooch it up beyond 1.2em doesn't work. There's no difference between 1.3em and 1.5em for example.

    Anyway, thanks again. It's not a biggie but I didn't like the apparent mis-spelling on my front page.

    "There's no difference between 1.3em and 1.5em for example."

    There is a difference, if you use a different font family.
