search widget of (chaoticsoul by brian veloso) has no title

  1. I noticed that after I placed the search widget, the search bar is there but the word SEARCH (or search my blog) is not there. In fact there's nothing indicating that it's a search bar. I tried to edit it in the appearance>widgets>search>edit section but it says: There are no options for this widget. Can you guys help me out with this one? I just want the word "Search" to appear above or beside the search bar. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is foolishblog.wordpress.com.

  2. tanduay,
    Please give us a link to your blog, starting with:
    http://

  3. Oh sorry I completely forgot to put my URL. It's http://foolishblog.wordpress.com/

  4. @tanduay, my suggestion is to contact staff and see if they will modify the theme files to add a title to the search widget. Because of the way it is designed, it is not at all clear that it is a search widget. http://support.wordpress.com/contact/

  5. Okay I'll do that. Thanks! :)

  6. You're welcome.

  7. tanduay,
    Let us know what they say. When I try it in my test blog, I have the same unlabeled search box. I don't remember if that is the norm for the theme or not! If I put a text widget with the title "Search my blog:"( and no text in it) above the search widget, it looks okay, but that seems an odd way to have to do it.

  8. Yeah, putting a text widget above the search bar just doesn't seem right. They still haven't answered me though. Don't worry, after I receive their email I'll post their answer here immediately.

  9. Nick from the WordPress staff already sent me an email. He said that he
    deployed a change to the theme that adds 'Search' into the box. For those using ChaoticSoul, you can add a search box and you can see the word SEARCH inside it. Though not exactly what I expected (I was thinking I'd get the word above the search field), it sure works fine and in fact could have been better than what I previously wanted. Thanks to everyone here who helped, and kudos to the staff. ^^
