Google custom search bar appears wrong

Recommended Posts

koem32

I have added a google custom search bar script in a text box section on my website: www.olysearch.com

The formatting appears all wrong. e.g when I start typing in the search bar the drop down list is blank. Is there something simple I can do to fix it? the css of google custom search bar is so incomprehensible that it's impossible for me to do

 

I have disabled all plugins

 

thanks

Hi,

 

It would appear the search field is being styled by DMS styling too. Add the following and this should resolve the issue.

 

table.gsc-search-box td {
padding: 4px 6px 0;
}
 
#site .gsc-search-button {
.box-sizing(content-box);
}

thanks, i added the css you've given me to the custom LESS/CSS but still have the same problem after refreshing the page. Is there something else I should do?

I am not seeing the custom CSS I gave you loading, are you sure you have added it ?

that's strange. I have pasted it in the css/less section and when I refresh the page its still there. I then published the page. Could this have something to do with my host provider (blue host)?

ok i found some other css I had added and was messing things up and now the search bar looks ok. However when I start typing a query into the search bar  the fonts  on the words in the autofill drop down list are white  and one can't see them. Is there something else that I could add to get it to work?

Try adding this:

 

.gssb_a {
color: black;
}
 
If you encounter any other problems, you're going to need to contact the plugin author if it is a plugin or Google themselves.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
