Moving the search bar inside the navigation


Well-known member
I posted this on my own forum and thought I would share it here too :)

Want to see what this wiil do? check out The demo On my forum

Okay, first of all open search_bar.css

Find this code:



        display: block;

        position: absolute;

        right: 20px;

        top: -18px;

        margin: 0;

        background-color: @content.background-color;

        border-radius: 5px;

        padding-top: 5px;

        _padding-top: 3px;

        z-index: 7500;

Edit this to suit your needs:

 top: -18px;
As an example, the one we use on AdminForums is -35px instead of -18px but this will vary depending on the height of your navigation bar.

Now, the ugly background color is still in place.. hmmm what to do??

Well this is even easier!

Simply remove this code:

 background-color: @content.background-color;
Now your search box is sitting on your navbar :)

    background: repeat-x  !important;
