View Full Version : search box beautify help

04-30-2011, 01:56 AM

I am new here and have been struggling to create a search box.
The search is working but its impossible to make it look "slick"

Basically I need a cool looking box that has the option to search in 3 different databases (off-site) and return the results in a new page.

right now the code simply puts 3 search boxes underneath each other, but ideally it would have 3 options under the type area where one can select which particular database to search in.

This is what I can do, I have reached the max of my capabilities. please help!

<div style="float:right; margin-top: 5px">

<form action="http://www.someurl.com/cgi-bin/search_preprocess.cgi" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name"=mode" value="case">
<input type="search" name="citation" size=27 value="" placeholder="e.g. [2000] 1 AC 360">
<input type="submit" value="Go"><br>

<input type="hidden" name"=mode" value="case">
<input type="search" name="titleall" size=25 value="" placeholder="e.g. barber v somerset">
<input type="submit" value="Go"><br>

<input type="hidden" name="mode" value="legis">
<input type="search" name="all" size=25 value="" placeholder="e.g. sustainable energy">
<input type="submit" value="Go"><br>

lawstudent the search of three DBs looks to me to be done with your on-site code. You do not need three search boxes. Modify your code to accept one input and do the 3 searches.
