Hi Duane,

Try hitting the space bar in the label field to remove the label

I think that will leave just the magnifying icon above the search?

If so can you try adding

.search input[type="text"] {float: left;}
.fa.fa-search {font-size:2em;padding:.2em}

And you will need to turn the search button off in the module settings

Cheers

I've added your recommendation to the module class suffix override in the module. The search module layout is still the same. There is something not allowing the search module to configure.

Thanks,
Duane

Thanks for the reminder about custom.css. I hadn't had a coffee yet. I've added your code to the custom.css file but no change in the search box. Something is preventing the template from utilizing the custom.css file and a global before </head> and before </body> custom code insertion from applying too. I can see the before /</head> code but not the before </body> code when I look on the client side. Could that be related?

Do you have caching enabled on the site or server?

As I'm still seeing optimised css files

I generally turn the server side caching off. But it's still not loading the custom.css file or the scripts for my SSL certificate check at Comodo.

Did you add a space to the label field in the admin search module settings?

Also the styling you have in the custom css file has the wrong bracket

it needs to be

.search input[type="text"] {float: left;}
.fa.fa-search {font-size:2em;padding:.2em}

OK, thanks so much. That's working. The SSL certificate is working but the scripts that Comodo provided should allow you to click on the logo to verify SSL status. That part isn't working.
