Search not working.


I have an issue that I can’t use the search part. Eg I can’t type into the search area. Its the same on the demo site.

Thank you

Hello @gcneal,

Thank you for pointing out the issue and please excuse the inconvenience!

You should try this CSS temporary fix until we address the issue in the next theme update.

.widget .search-form .search-form-box #searchsubmit {
    position: absolute;

Let me know if it did the trick.


Hello Ion


Sorry I didn’t notice the text below the box. I thought that was a heading LOL but instead its the search text.

I have a search icon in the box which now overlaps, but the icon (submit search) doesn’t seem to show on the demo. You can use enter to submit.

Hope this helps.

Hehe, no problem, it was still an issue with it that hopefully will get resolved in the nearest future.


I have added in stylesheet

.widget .search-form {
	position: relative;
.widget .search-form .search-form-box #searchsubmit {
    position: absolute;
    left: 10px;

copied serchform.php to my child theme and changed

<input type="submit" id="searchsubmit" value="" />


<button id="searchsubmit" type="submit"><i class="fa fa-search"></i></button>

Hope this helps somebody.
