    Unhappy Google search

    I don't know if this is the best search to have for my site but it doesn't search my whole site, but only the page you are on. Why is this? I don't know. If anyone has any better suggestions on a search box for my site please let me know. Thanks so much.

    Try
    Code:
    #center {/*global.css (line 366)*/
    border:medium none;
    /*display:block;
    height:auto;
    margin:3px auto;
    overflow:auto;
    */
    min-height:575px;
    text-align:center;
    width:525px;
    }

    So why is your topic "Google search"? What exactly is your question?

    I have a google adsense account.
    I use the search engine they offer.
    I copied the code to my pages and now have a search bar where users can search my site.
    The problem is that it doesn't search my site, it only searches the page your on.
    My question isn't exact it's just to see if anyone knows about this, has had this problem, can find the problem in my code because they know it well and are good, or can suggest a better search alternative.
    Thank you.

    I thought you were asking "why my search box is hidden in the home page?" . lol, when I opened your site in FF2, it appeared to me behind the other large box.

    Now, to display a page using google's custom search, it must be crawled before by google bot and added to its index . Check your website's statistics using google's webmaster tools.
