Hi

We would like to create a search bubble tool-bar on our Joomla website like the one you usually see on the top right hand corner for Google - how do we do we create one like that or similar to that?

Thank you.

There is normally a search module that you can activate and add to your header.  

Which template are you using?

You will need to have a template that can support a feature like adding a search module above or in the header of the template.

In order to activate the search module do this:
1) Go to Module Manager
2) Select New
3) Select the Search option
4) Fill out the configuration settings...especially the one that says position and menu assignment.

This should get you the search function on your site.

Please let me know if that works for you.  Should look like this when completed.

Hi

Yes i have managed to test this search function and it seems to be working fine - however,i would like to know whether a button with the magnifying glass next to it can be inserted for users to click to start search rather than push enter. We would also like it to come down a little lower than the current position

Thanks
