Support » Plugin: Better Search » Custom CSS field names and formats

  • Is it possible to get a listing of all the fields used in the search form? I have been trying to make changes to the appearance and have not been able to accomplish it. I am using it with Beaver Builder, which I assume should make no difference.
    I would like to change the height of the input form and the submit form. Also the submit form background color. This has been a very frustrating experience, and I hate to say it but I have never had such a hard time making changes to a plugin’s output design.

    Thank you.

    I have to admit the documentation for my plugin isn’t great at all! It’s slow progress as I do this in spare time.

    Are you styling the page with the Seamless mode off? With seamless mode on, it will just pick the default template of your theme.

    For the seamless mode off, the best option right now is to View source on the rendered page:

    The rough CSS structure is:
    div id=bsearchresults
    table class=bsearch_nav
    article class=bsearch-post
    header class=bsearch-entry-header which contains an h2 and a p
    div class=bsearch-entry-content
    p class=bsearch_footer

    I believe that the problem I am having is related to using Beaver Builder to create my pages. When I put the search in a widget, all is well. The output looks like my design specs. (I am using Genesis Framework with Dynamik Website Builder.) Have you heard of issues customizing the search form with BB in the past? I had no trouble at all customizing the search result page. But using the web developer tool, Inspector, really reveals nothing usable about the search form itself. Hence, my frustration.
    I did try turning on seamless mode, and there was no change. Still not what I want. Any further info you could provide would be invaluable. Many thanks. And I do like the plugin. It is obvious that a lot of work was involved in creating it. Good Search plugins are hard to find.

    If you’re looking for a search form, you can use just about any search form. You don’t need the one for this plugin specifically although it has its own widget for the form.

    The plugin will override any of the search queries that are made on your site i.e. anything after the “?s=“ gets sent to the plugin to process.
