Moving search onto same line as branding

Recommended Posts

Ive been trying unsuccessfully to move the search box to the right of the image in the header for a few days now. I've went into live support but they only point me to css tutorials. I realize that you guys cant help with everything but paying $20 per month should at least get us pointed in the right direction to learn ourselves. With this issue Ive tried floating things and changing widths but the search box stays under whatevers above it. Any help would be appreciated.

The standard tools used are: Firebug www.getfirebug.com http://www.w3schools.com/css/ - a great guide to CSS elements http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ - verifying that your CSS was done correctly http://validator.w3.org/ - makes sure your HTML code is correct. Okay, so, there's several ways of handling what you're trying to achieve. 1. As you did it, adding the search to the universal sidebar (per my guidance in live) based on your request. 2. Use a hook; putting a search box (customized) into a location you want it to be. You can try a search plugin, Google Custom Search or other code, entered into a hook. Moving the search box as we did, per your request, we must add a z-index to make the search field functional and the empty, universal sidebar must be reduced to nothing. No padding, margins, etc.
