Cannot get "Search For:" off the page! (3 posts)

    Visited probably 50 different sites all last night. Tried everything. Changed the style.css and search.php file in both the 2010 theme and custom theme "radio" folders. The website is here ... http://www.speakingofradio.com/

    Do you have any other ideas on how I can get rid of that annoying extra text for "Search For:" before the actual search box?

    Thanks, Todd

    If you didn't find an answer, add to your theme's css file:

    label.screen-reader-text {
    display: none;

    If it's screen-reader text then you don't want to display it none, just position it off-screen using absolute positioning, e.g:

    label.screen-reader-text {
     position: absolute;
     left: -9999em;
     top: -9999em;

    And add it to your Child Theme style.css file or Custom CSS plugin section of the dashboard.
    The latter is easier:
