    Tumblr search box help

    hi, i have a search box on my tumblr but its not working. Ill try and search something on my tumblr and it wont give me any results.

    Here is the search box code for my tumblr:

    <div id="search">

    <form action="/search" method="get">
    <input id="searchbox" type="text" name="q" value="Search"/>
    <input id="searchbutton" type="submit" value=""/>
    </form>


    Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

    yeah "/search" may need to be "search.php" but your going to have to check your files. its a hard call since im actually not a mind reader. try checking all the files and search for a file that looks like "search.php" or "query.php" or something of the like and try sticking it into the action=" "

    if you can't find one, try posting a picture of your file directory, so we can see all the files that are included in this website.

    the search results could also be displayed on the page. it would be a really good idea to post a live link of your website
