Search bar for blog

Postby angienewton » Tue Aug 19, 2008 5:22 pm

I would like to add a search bar on my blog so not only can I do a search for past posts but my readers can search too. I would like one similar to the one on Lynn's blog at clicknewz.com where the wording is in side of the search bar.

Where would I go to get a code for that type of search box?

Is that what it's even called? :P

Thanks!

It's likely that your theme includes a search widget you can just add at Design/Widgets in your dashboard. I believe that search function only searches posts and not pages, so if you need to search pages you can probably find a plugin at WordPress

Thanks Linda! I was able to find that my theme had a widget for a search and I'll use that for now. I appreciate your help.
