  1. I'm trying to change the text and font of our search bar in our blog but can't work out how to do it.

    Basically - how do I change the font.

    Where can I change the actual text from "search" to "search this blog"

  2. Check this post:

    instead of "search_field_value", use "thematic_search_submit" and it should do it. I didn't test it but it should do it according to the widget-extension.php in the thematic code.

  3. That didn't quite work for me. I only got words there w/ no functionality. So to preserve the whole clickable nature of the box I had to do this:

    //Change search box text
    function childtheme_search_submit() {
    return '<input id="searchsubmit" name="searchsubmit" type="submit" value="' . __('Go', 'thematic') . '" tabindex="2" />';
    add_filter('thematic_search_submit', 'childtheme_search_submit');

    With the 'Go' Being where you'd change the value you want on the button.
