  1. Ok basically im building a child theme and have up untill now been able to use hooks and filters to do what i needed. However there is an if else statement in need to edit in the search.php (specifically the else section)

    else {
    ?>
    <div id="post-0" class="post noresults">
    <h1 class="entry-title"><?php _e('Nothing Found', 'thematic') ?></h1>
    <div class="entry-content">
    <p><?php _e('Sorry, but nothing matched your search criteria. Please try again with some different keywords.', 'thematic') ?></p>
    </div>
    <form id="noresults-searchform" method="get" action="<?php bloginfo('home') ?>">
    <div>
    <input id="noresults-s" name="s" type="text" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars(stripslashes($_GET['s']), true) ?>" size="40" />
    <input id="noresults-searchsubmit" name="searchsubmit" type="submit" value="<?php _e('Find', 'thematic') ?>" />
    </div>
    </form>
    </div><!-- .post -->

    <?php
    }
    ?>

    I would rather avoid editing the search.php file directly because im trying to build a proper child theme! suggestions? thank you ahead of time!!!

    It might not be considered the most "clean" way of doing it, but in still keeping line without modifying any of the core thematic files you can simply copy the entire search.php file and paste it into your childtheme directory. Thereby overwriting the thematic search.php without actually modifying the original one.

  3. i have also done what dhales mentioned. i think b/c the search form itself is not inside the entry-content div... and so was all out of line on me
