    ‘Allo, fellow artists/programmers. I just visited the Juxtapoz website and I really like their search bar, here. I would like to create something similar, but I can’t seem to get my head around it. I am using WordPress for my website, here, which is currently broken because I added the get_search_form PHP. This is what I have figured out thus far…

    WordPress uses the following PHP for its search form:

    Or at least, that is what it looks like within my Starkers theme. So I looked at the codex, here, and discovered that I do not have a searchform.php anywhere in my theme, which means that WordPress will render its built-in search form. Now, what do I need to do to style everything the way I would like to? In the codex, they give examples, but I only see one div encapsulating a label class and two input types. I need a way to physically position the search bar, then add a magnifying glass as the search button, and finally have the bar ease-in and out on rollover. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    Edit: Also, I inspected the element on the Juxtapoz website in Google Chrome and they have some funky stuff happening. Overflowing with input types.


    Take [a look]( at `get_search_form()` function on line 152 that might give you some ideas.
