  • Simple search entry form

    Could someone please help me update this?

    I'm sure it's old. This is from a V2 post. I have V3RC2 installed.

    I just want to add a simple search entry field to the header of my site and forum.

    Based on this thread, I have:

    HTML Code:
    <form action="" method="post" name="search"><input type="image" src="" align="right"><input type="hidden" name="s" value="<?=$session[sessionhash] ?>"><input class="searchinput" onFocus="this.value='';" onBlur="if (this.value=='') {this.value='Search forums...';}" type="text" name="query" value="Search forums..." size="10" style="float: right; height: 15; position:relative; font-family:Arial; font-size:8pt"><input type="hidden" name="forumchoice" value="- 1"><input type="hidden" name="searchin" value="subject"><input type="hidden" name="searchdate" value="-1"><input type="hidden" name="action" value="simplesearch"><input type="hidden" name="booleanand" value="yes"></form>

    Thanks a ton in advance.

      vBulletin 3, already includes a simply search in the header of every page. Click on the seach link about and the box will dropdown.

        Okay, but I wanted a entry field that was more prominent in the header. I also wanted to add a search entry form right next to it that searches my site.

        I have it exactly the way I wanted it now and they both work great. Thanks much.

        Here's a screen shot.
