Coelesce, search field problem

jstotz posts: 1 user offline
(I tried to post this to the bug tracker on themes.tiki.org, but I couldn't make a new post even after logging in.)

In the Coelesce theme, The search module has problems when placed in the left sidebar. This worked in version 9.0, problem is in 10.2. I don't know about versions in between. Verified on demo site.

1. The text entry field is not visible until clicked on. Also, it doesn't look like the one in the search_wiki_page module.

2. The advanced search label and check box, the search help label and button, and the Go button, are positioned to the right of the text entry field and are therefore pushed out over the page content. They should be under the text entry field. This can be fixed by changing line 370 of the coelesce.css file. This line currently says "white-space: nowrap;" Change "nowrap" to "normal". I don't know what this change will do in other situations.


I also noticed that the html is very different between this module and the search_wiki_page module. I would think they should be more similar.

About the tracker here, I don't think anyone is monitoring it, and bugs should be reported here in the forum or at the bug tracker at dev.tiki.org, or in the forum at the community site. We should turn off the trackers here, or else fix them, for sure.

I'll check about the Coelesce theme search form. I imagine the CSS was done with the header position in mind, and the behavior in the side column wasn't considered. Thanks for reporting the problem.

veronicamarsh, 08:33 GMT, Sun 12 of May, 2013: tikiwiki 2.0 is the star of this weekend. Just follow as we add it to SM dev.
chibaguy, 02:57 GMT, Thu 04 of Oct, 2012: This is a late reply, but, for the record, the Milkyway theme (following the original design) doesn't have a search form in the top bar. You can put one at the top of a side column, etc. instead.
andi6803, 12:20 GMT, Tue 18 of Oct, 2011: I use tiki 6v4 with the Milkyway theme. But it's not possible to switch on the search bar at the top bar. With other themes it works.
