Support » Fixing WordPress » No SEARCH in WP Style Toni?

  • I am using the TONI style found on Alex King’s website. I am happy with the layout but there is no SEARCH form using this Style Sheet.
    How could I add the “SEARCH” to the TONI style?

  • Find this bit in the stylesheet:
    #search, #calendar, #other {
    display: none;
    }

    and delete #search. You would probably then have to do some extra styling for #search to make it fit in with the rest of the page.
    Not sure why you need the search box anyway. That kind of thing is useful for forums and informational sites, but pretty pointless for the average blog.

    A lot of other styles exclude the search box, as well as the calendar. I presume it’s because it was difficult to style those elements, and make them good with those styles…

    I want the search in because I am setting up a blog for an advertising agency and they want their blog visitors as well as their sales people to be able to search for articles on marketing, advertising, promotions, etc. and a search form is the logical tool for that.
    It’s more accurate than clicking on a specific Category link if there will be be dozens of articles on the subject.

    Took your advice… stripped the tags and used the CSS. works just fine now.
    Cheers!

    Looks good. The only other things I might suggest is to tweak the css for IE. As is, if the browser window is too small, the menu “drops.” I set the rap at 745px (you will have to set it wider) and decreased the width of the textarea on the feedback form so the menu would stay put. I also moved the background from the body into the rap and changed the background color to the same as the menu so it appears to wrap the content. You are welcome to take a look at my site – just select the toni style from the style switcher.

    Oops, didn’t realize I was no longer logged in.

    I was trying to change the color of the inputted text in the search box and/or the search box background color.
    I didn’t find any reference to #search, or recognize anything that looked relevant in wp-layout.css, yet this template uses the search box and it comes up fine on the screen, it’s only that I customized the color scheme that I need a new font class or another mod for it now.
    Does anyone know of a quick fix for this?
