Problem with search on Classy Theme

Hello all. I installed the Classy Theme and the search will not function. I cannot even click in the search box. Every other theme and the search works fine. Here is the weird part. All of the code is exactly the same for the search fields on the two themes I compared. Classy which did not work and Independence which worked fine. I am at a total loss. Please help me!!

  • I'm having the same problem. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • Hi LiberalAtheist, I'm not sure if you are still trying to work this out, but I realised its to do with the layering in the CSS. Just search for the searchbar CSS and add somethign similar to "Z-index: 2", and it will bring the searchbar to the top of the page so that it is click-able.

  • Thanks dor the fix sikm, I'll add it in the next release

  • Hi,

    where can I find the css file?


  • for others still having this problem as there seems to be no response anywhere is to look for the css.php file in /search/views/default/search/css.php and add the z-index:

    Search plugin
    .elgg-search-header {
    bottom: 5px;
    height: 23px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    z-index: 20;
