    I have tried to change the default value of the search form text by editing search_form.php like this:

    <form method=”get” id=”searchform” action=”<?php bloginfo(‘home’); ?>/”>

    <div><input type=”text” class=’rounded text_input’ value=”<?php echo wp_specialchars($s, 1); ?>” name=”s” id=”s” />

    <input type=”submit” class=”button ie6fix” id=”searchsubmit” value=”.” / class=”default value” value=” search in my site”>



    It did not work, so i cleared the code I input, and now the php file is the same as original.

    However, now all the elements in the header have been moved a little downwards and the footer looks moved aswell, thus making it look messy, the menus, the search box, etc…:

    I’m not sure if you understand me, so I made a screenshot with blue rectangles on the messed up stuff:

    I have not changed any kind of code regarding heidth or width, just the search_form.php.

    How could I revert the moved-down effect? Because I have no idea where to look at, I just modified search_form and reverted it back to the original code.

    Please, help.

    Thanks in advance,




    I think you have a structure error or something similiar – x is to maybe try to upload the original php files again. However a quick fix is to add following code to style.css (at the very bottom):

    top: -13px;


    I uninstalled and re-installed the theme and now it seems to be looking fine.

    Thanks anyway :)


    Glad that you solved the problem :)
