Hi guys,

To be honest - this is a public plea to Cameron Allen . . .

. . . I have tried contacting Cameron for many, many months about the Super Search software I purchased.

I NEED YOUR HELP!

Can someone who knows Cameron please get in touch with them about this?

Thank you,
Adam

Hi Matt,

I want to know more about the integration of the Search function into a template.
Please have a look at my website, bondposters.com and look at where the 'search' button is - that is where I originally wanted the search function to be placed.

As well as information about the updates.
Kind regards,
Adam Carter

I'm not exactly sure what it is you're asking; it looks like your search plug-in is working as intended - even if the output is a bit small (I suspect a tweak of the css should fix that).

Hey DrJon,

When you look on Cameron Allen's page for the Super Search plugin we are redirected to the SohoLaunch HomePage to see an example of the plugin in action -please see below:
Website Builder by Soholaunch | Content Management System (CMS) and Web Design Software for Everyone

The way it looks on the link provided is the same, or similar, to how I would like it to be on my site.

I should have been more clear earlier, so my bad!

Thank you! :-)
Kind regards,
Adam Carter

Ah, I see: you want it in the same location as it is on Soho's front page?

Without having access to the plugin code it's not easy to say how to achieve that, but I suspect it may need a tweak or two to your template as well in order to move the location.

Hey DrJon,

No, I want it to look the same, or similar, but in the place where I already have the 'search' button on my Bondposters.com website.

Thank you,
Kind regards,

Just put #SUPERSEARCH# in your template where you want the search box to go.

Ah, I see!

I am not sure where to put this coding - I designed my site, but I did not code it - I got the fantastic Leh-Wen Yau to code my design etc!

This help is great by the way guys!
I really do appreciate it!

Does anyone know why Cameron Allen does not reply directly?

Cheers!

Guys,

I have changed the search area.

Now I have to place it correctly etc!

It needs to be in the middle of the black area where the function is positioned.
The white box also needs to be decreased in width.

How do I do this?

I have the coding for you to look at it - I just don't know if I should put it on here as it is for add-on software?
If I can't put it here, then I can email it to you!

Thank you,

All your doing by putting #SUPERSEARCH# in your template is telling the plugin where to place the following code

<form name="form" action="search.php" method="get">
<input type="text" id="supersearch-q" name="q" value=""num>
<input type=submit class=FormLt1 id="supersearch-submit" name="Submit" value="Search">  <br>
<span style="font-size: 80%;" valign=bottom><input type="checkbox" name="t" value="phrase">Match Exact Phrase    </span></form>

If you want to change the look, then I would suggest just copying this code and replacing #SUPERSEARCH# with it and then adding some CSS styles to your template style sheet. Use the id of the text input (supersearch-q) to change the width and do whatever else you want.

The most important thing is to not change the action of the form or the id's/name's of the forms elements as this may cause the search.php script to return an error to any query that gets posted to it.

It may be that the plugin has its own css file too where the classes are defined - as Matt has indicated, this will control the size of the search box, the fonts and so forth.

If you do edit any css file, seems obvious, but be sure to keep a copy of the original in case it all goes awry!!
