I created a google custom search using my own search box for the home page of my site. http://windbertsa.com
But, where I have the image for the ‘go’ to search, the numbers 010 keep showing up and I cannot figure out how to get rid of them.
Somehow I think they are displaying over top the image I have for the search icon.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
From your markup:
You’re limiting the input to 24px wide, so you only see `010`.
And yes, they are “on top” of the image, since it’s a background image.
The value of your input:button is “010940250076997835162:WMX1781837400″
Not sure where this is coming from but the first three characters are 010 and that is what you are seeing.
@nordstromdesign that value is the value given to me from google’s custom search.
If it’s actually ‘on top’ of the image, is there a away for me to change where that element is in the code so that it doesn’t show up?
The `value` attribute is the text that actually shows up on the button. You’re using a background image to label the image so you need to hide the web text. **Adding `font-size: 0` to the button solves it.**

@tomrogers123 Thanks! that did seem to fix it. I don’t really understand why the google custom search told me to set it as a value if it actually gets displayed then.
@Paulie_D That article looks interesting enough, I will check it out for sure :) Thanks.
