You'll need to disable the current search box on PageLines and use a Google Custom Search plugin like this one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-custom-search-for-wordpress/

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Anyone out there? How do I place 'google custom search' bar to the original position in PlatformPro? I have the google custom search plugins installed.

Yeah. So, put the new google plugin in the universal sidebar and then use CSS to place and style it.

Actually, this is a really good idea, I'm also going to do it.

Ha, cause I'm terrible at PHP and all my custom sections are just duplicates of sidebars... so I essentially will be, but...

You can always add it to a text widget in your sidebar. ;)

You'll need to have the PageLines Sections plugin (available from the Store on your Dashboard) in order to create custom sections.
