Support » Fixing WordPress » Search box and form fields not showing up.

  • About a month ago AJAX search lite was working fine and then stopped letting me and others click the search box to type in are search. I tried the built in search for WP widget and it doesn’t even show up. Also Form stack embedded form broke all over the site. I had to make them iframes to show up correctly. I had not changed anything when this happened. I have been digging since to find a solution. I have exhausted the possibility of it being a plugin conflict and I believe its a theme conflict, But I have no idea how to fix it. I would appreciate any help. I did not build this site and this is my first WP site that i have run. Please help.

    Hello conkel177. Sounds like a headache.

    Did you try switching to a different theme to see if that would solve the problem? Then you’d know for certain it’s a theme issue.


    When i switch it somehow breaks the custom theme and i have to delete and re-install the schools custom theme, it also does not work in other themes as well.

    I am at the mercy of the marketing department to keep the current theme and site. They just liked the search bar, i’v found a work around with forms but no avail with the search bar.

    Hmmmmmm. It’s never good when your themes break.

    I’m not quite sure what you mean by the “search bar”. Where is that on your site?

    i just added the Ajax widget to the sidebar. it does not let you click in the dialog box to type anything and i will also activate the built in search widget above the Ajax one. I can give it a title but it does not show up.

    I found the culprit. Some how a line of code in the style sheet was added.

    height: 50px;
    transition:height 1.5s;
    -moz-transition:height 1.5s; /* Firefox 4 */
    -webkit-transition:height 1.5s; /* Safari and Chrome */
    -o-transition:height 1.5s; /* Opera */
    overflow: hidden;

    The input {display:none} line was breaking everything that had a call out of input.
    Thanks for your help.
    P.S. I love the design of

    Great to hear you got it!

    And thanks for the compliment. The Pixel1Media portal is an exercise in simplicity. 🙂
