    Is this possible, or is the search bar ‘hard-coded in’? i cant see it listed as an editable widget.
    Also does anyone know how to remove the rss feeds box in regulus also?
    thanks in advance.

    (1) Do you have css editing skills?
    (2) Have you purchased the css upgrade?
    (3) And are you willing to undertake the css editing required on your own?

    If your answers are “yes” to all the questions then the search box can be dealt with and the rss feeds can likewise be “covered” over by changes made to the customized style sheet which will overule what’s coded into the theme.

    ASIDE: Would you like to link your wordpress.com username to your blog? If so then …

    Linking your username to your wp.com blog in the forum id done this way.
    (1) Go up to the top right hand corner of this forum page and look for “Welcome,_________ ! View your profile” and click “View your profile”.

    (2) Next click “edit this information”.

    (3) Complete the fields being sure that where it says website that you enter http://insertyourblognamehere.wordpress.com (no period at the end or the link won’t work)

    (4) Once you’re done click “Update Profile”. Voila! Now every time you sign into the forum we can click on your username and your blog will be linked to it.

    (5) Also note that there is a complete record of every post that you make to the forum on your forum profile page. Everyone in the forum can access it by simply clicking on “Member” next to your username. :)

    Hi thanks for the quick reply :)
    Yes i have purchased the css upgrade btw, ive already done some minimal tinkering with the css, whether that counts as being ‘skilled’ in css – probably not. Although if pointed in the right direction i can usally work things out.
    So any further help would be much appreciated from anyone out there.

    Btw i linked my username to my site, quite a useful feature thanks :)

    Thanks for the thanks. I’m learning some css basics myself so I cannot help you. Staff do not provide support for learning css. What happens is that you post to the forum as you have done. Then when the bloggers who are css experts (mostly professionals) are done their paid work for the day they may drop in and volunteer to help you. And now that your username is linked to your blog that should expedite the process.
    Best wishes. :)

    Isnt that really wierd. IMHO the searchbox widget in WP org is borked. But here what do we find? Lo and behold it falls before the nested lists from hell even start.
    To answer the q. In the CSS add
    #search {display:none}
    That should kill it.

    Try adding these selectors to your CSS:

    #search, #feeds {display: none;}

    HTH

    Edit: atthe404 beat me to it. Just add the #feeds to your selectors and that should do it too

    We multi-taskers are either three jugglers or three clowns.
    And naturally I prefer the former point of view. ;)

    thanks guys, worked a treat = )
    Just one more thing (does a columbo) how do you move the left column up and down on the page? im sure its quite simple but i seem to be struggling.
    Also, anyone know if the borders in regulus can be altered? they seem to be set to a not too pleasent lilac colour, any way to change their colour or remove them altogether?
    thanks again.
