search bar disappeared

  1. hello.

    I have been customising my white as milk theme changing colors and backgrounds, nothing else. But at the end the search engine on my sidebar has disappeared.

    this is my new CSS sheet

    can you help me find out what happened?

    thank you!

  2. it would be really helpful if you could post a link to your blog, its not just about CSS but HTML as well.

    Maybe you picked the same color for the search box border as the background so it seems as if theres nothing there, or you changed some padding or margins even if by accident and the search form changed its position.....

  3. thank you

    here's a link

  4. This part causes the problem:

    #sidebar form {
    margin:180px;
    }

    Change it to:

    #sidebar form {
    margin:0;
    }

    I would also add padding rule too, to make it look more consistent across browsers:

    #sidebar form {
    margin:0px;
    padding:0px;
    }

    Of course you don't have to use 0px, just dont set it too big (btw you dont have to write units next to 0 but don't forget to add them with any other number)

  5. thank you!
