Search box position

Feb 7, 2011 at 1:06 AM

I'm using the Metal Mid Grey theme with the search box and I can't place the search box properly.  For some reason it's stuck up in the upper-right corner of the page, though I placed it as the first item in AsideSecond.  A quick look at css files makes me think it's possibly not setup for standard zone treatment, but this doesn't seem right.  Is this a bug?  Is it just messed up in the theme?  Why would the search form be any different than other widgets?

Any thoughts?  I could really use some help with this!

I haven't looked at this theme, but the search box is probably incorrectly directly set into the HTML templates of the theme instead of being added as a widget. I'm afraid you will have no other choice than to dig into the theme's files and remove it directly from there.

You were right.  It was the css file for the theme that had styles for the search form.  It looks like the theme tries to keep it in the top-right of the screen.  It was simple enough to remove.
