    <form method=”get” action=”<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>/” class=”searchbar”>
    <p>
    <input type=”text” class=”txt” value=”<?php the_search_query(); ?>” name=”s”/>
    <input type=”submit” name=”submit” value=”Search” class=”btn”/>
    </p>
    </form>
    <div class=”clr”></div>

    <?php /* Widgetized sidebar, if you have the plugin installed. */
    if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) : ?>

      I forgot to put the code in backsticks, here is the whole code:

      <form method="get" action="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/" class="searchbar">
                          <p>
                          <input type="text" class="txt" value="<?php the_search_query(); ?>" name="s"/>
                          <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search" class="btn"/>
                          </p>
              </form>
              <div class="clr"></div>
      
      			<?php 	/* Widgetized sidebar, if you have the plugin installed. */
      					if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar(1) ) : ?>
                      <div class="sb-box">
                          <h2></h2>
      				<ul><p align="center"><span class="sb-box"><a href="http://www.bbb.org/central-northern-western-arizona/business-reviews/marketing-consultants/em-lynch-marketing-assoc-in-scottsdale-az-1000003757/" target="_blank">Click Here to View Report</a> </span></p></ul>
      <ul><p align="center"><span class="sb-box"><a img src="http://www.emlynch.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/brand.gif"; no-repeat;></a></span></p></ul>
      
       <ul></ul>
      
                      </div>
      
      			<?php endif; ?>

      Try changing this

      <a img src="http://www.emlynch.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/brand.gif"; no-repeat;></a>

      to

      <img src="http://www.emlynch.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/brand.gif/"/>

      You were mixing up html and css styling a bit, so it wouldn’t render right. (“a” tags are links). Learn more about img tags here.

      <ul><img src="http://www.emlynch.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/brand.gif/"/></ul>

      so i changed the code to the correct code but for some reason the pic is still not showing up

      check out emlynch.com, there should be an image that pops up under the search bar on the right side of the page

      Sorry, my bad, an extra / slipped in the filename. This is corrected:

      <img src="http://www.emlynch.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/brand.gif"/>
