Hello,

This is a builder site using WP 3.0 and custom menus. Still more to do but this site is a sample site for sales purposes (so the lorum ipsum is just placeholders).

I like Builder alot but it seems there is always something my assistant can come up with that I can't figure out how to implement - such as Search Bar in the nav area, but I built this site in an afternoon.

This site content was duplicated from an older version of WP using BackupBuddy, updating the plugins and then updating WP to 3.0

OK, OK - here it is: http://www.dynamicspartnersite.com/blue/

I'd love any comments including any issue you might see with your browser.

Thank you,

Nice Louise,

I think I told you I would get back on the searchbar in the nav (but I wanted to wait till WordPress 3 was final), so here it is:

- Rather than using the navigation module, add an HTML module where you want the navigation to appear

- add the following content (assuming your menu is called "menu1", change of course if needed):

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'menu1', 'menu_class' => 'builder-module-navigation') ); ?>

 <?php get_search_form(); ?>


- no sidebars, enable PHP,

- save the layout

- add the following code to your stylesheet

#nav_container {
 height: 34px;
 display: block;
 width: 100%;
 background: #FFFFFF url('images/nav_bg.png') repeat top left;
}

.search_in_nav {
 float: right;
 display: block;
 width: 250px;
 height: 24px;
 padding: 0px 5px;
 margin: 0px;
}

Note: play around a bit with the margins and paddings, heights and widths,

and you're good to go,
Ronald

Ronald,

Excellent! I'll give it a go. I appreciate the effort! Builder does make it easier to create WP sites and I've learned a few tricks for the functions.php.

I'll let you know how that goes. I have a site to add the search to now.

Thanks AGAIN!

Ronald! Louise! (Hi, Louise from Wichita)

I read this, did a version of it, and it worked!!!

I wanted a quiet little footer that has a different look from the other Anchor navs that I am using; didn't want the white js slider under nav entries and wanted different styling. So I made a menu using the WP menu system, called it footermenu, then put Ronald's code in an html module (my first time using an html module in WP). I deleted the search div code, since I am not interested in that right now.

I added the styling to my stylesheet.

Now I'm going to play with the styling to get the look I want.

Does this mean I have graduated to PHP? Or at least "PHP enabled"?

Thanks! This is scary easy.

Ruth

Hi Ronald,

Could you do me a favor? I don't like the looks of the WP default searchbox, so I often use a plugin (Live search Popup which can be found here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/live-search-popup/)

I'va managend to get it in the searchbox, using your method abovem but it 'breaks' the box. I've been playing around with it but I ran out of ideas.

Do you have any?

Thanks,

Carl

@Carl: Add the following at the end of your theme's style.css:

#searchform img {
margin-top: 0;
}

@ carl, can you share what you entered in the HTML module to get the new search style working? I did the first version at http://www.maximizedprofits.com but would prefer to have a more styled view with the plugin that you're using.

Thanks.

Alex, sure, no problem:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'cats', 'menu_class' => 'builder-module-navigation') ); ?>

 <?php livesearchpopup_searchbox() ?>

'cats' is the navigationmodule.
The searchbox isnt looking 100%. I need to play around with the css now that Shridar helped repairing the image.

Good luck.

C.

I have a question. I am following this topic after finding it in the codex, but where it says select no sidebars and enable php, where do I do that? I do not see that on the widget bar option or the text/html box...
