Hi if you go to

, and see the search tab on the right hand side, you'll see that the button (search) is not working. What do I need to do to change that and add to the custom CSS to make the search button clickable and not only cosmetic?

Hi there,

 

When I test your site the search button is working. What browser are you using?

The button at the side of the search. I mean not typing the search text and clicking enter. The button on the right hand side. I am using Chrome Browser.

It's odd. I've tried it on Firefox, Chrome as well as Internet Explorer, and the button is not working at all.

Hi,

 

You applied the search button as a background, not as a button, and it is extending the search field, but the search form doesn't cover it. As a result, there is no search button at all. Just the background of the search field.  You will not have a mouse-click action there as the only way to make the search field work is to type some text and press Enter.

 

If you want an actual button there, you're going to have to modify the section, adding a specific button within the search form code, with an on-click action.

Maybe you could help me out with the code, as I am virtually an amatuer. How do I create a search button, with an on-click action.

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately, this is an extreme customization that would require a professional developer to help create.  I will thus refer you to

as we cannot provide custom code to create buttons via the forum.
