The e-commerce.

putting search box on right hand side of the header?


Recommended Posts

Can't get the search box(or any other box to) go to the right side in the HEADER.(header.php)...


I placed the script,


<?php require('boxes/search2.php'); ?>


and the box displays...only it's in the left coloumn of the header.


I did a test and used A word, instead of THE php script and that displayed on the right hand side,

but i can't get the box to be on the right?



Also is there a way to have the search field and magnifying glass to be displayed without the big box around it?,

-maybe if that big box is gone the search field might go to the right?


Can anybody help...please!!


There must be a way :(

Thanks for that link Melinda


Unfortunately it keeps coming up with an error message


Call to undefined function: osc_draw_input_field()


My whole table cell looks likes this


<td valign="middle"><?php echo tep_draw_form('quick_find', tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get') . osc_draw_input_field('keywords', '', 'size="10" maxlength="30" style="width: ' . (BOX_WIDTH-30) . 'px"') . ' ' . tep_hide_session_id() . osc_draw_hidden_field('search_in_description' , '1') . tep_image_submit('button_quick_find.gif', BOX_HEADING_SEARCH) . '<br>' . BOX_SEARCH_TEXT . '<br><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH) . '"><b>' . BOX_SEARCH_ADVANCED_SEARCH . '</b></a></form>';?>



I don't know what I have done wrong - PHP is not my hot point but I am trying to improve.


Also if I want to put the currency selector in the header also how do I do that, as when I put the infobox in it appears on the right.


If anyone could explain the reason it appears on the right for my understanding I would be grateful.

I am using the search2 in my header but when I do a search if I am logged in it will log me out. I am using yahoo as my service provider. When I use the search that comes standard with oscommerce it does not log me out.


I am thinking it has something to do with the following line but not sure. I am new to php.

this is the search box that comes with oscommerce.

$info_box_contents[] = array('form' => tep_draw_form('quick_find', tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get'),


this is the search2:

<form name="quick_find" action="advanced_search_result.php" method="get">


there is nothing about NONSSL in the code for search2.


Any help is appreciated.
