    Hi guys,

    I got questions.

    1. How can I remove the search box and replace with the Google Custom Search ?

    2. How can I change the font size and change the background of the footer area ?

    3. I just installed the plugin called “Breadcrumb NavXT” and I want the breadcrumb to be appeared right after the header image/slides images section. What I need to do ?

    4. I knew that Broadscope is a mega menu theme but I bought Ubermenu the other day. If i want to test drive Ubermenu, how can I enable on Broadscope theme.

    Many thanks,

    Hi sirinyaw,

    Responding to your questions…

    1) You can replace the default search box with Google’s own by editing searchform.php. Just remove the code that’s currently there with Google’s.

    2) To change the font size and footer area’s background color you’ll need to add some CSS to custom.css located in the theme’s CSS folder. What you add depends on what you’re trying to change. For example, add this to change the footer’s background color:

    #footer {
    background-color: #F8F8F8;
    }

    Note: The footer is considered where the light grey area of the demo where Archive, Categories, Pages, etc. are located.

    You’ll have to be specific about which text you want to change the font size of before we can give you that code. Generally speaking though it would look something like this:

    h3 {
    font-size: 17px;
    }

    3. You’ll need to check with Breadcrumb NavXT as to what you need to add but the template you’ll want to edit is most likely going to be loop-page.php, loop-index.php, loop-archive.php and loop-portfolio.php all of which are located in the theme’s includes folder. I imagine you’ll want to add the code directly above this snippet:

    <h1 class='post-title'>
    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php _e('Permanent Link:','avia_framework')?> <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    </h1>

    4. You’ll need to review Ubermenu‘s documentation as to what you need to do. Not sure but they may have specific code you need to add to the template in order to get to work or it may be as simple as changing a setting in your Dashboard – again you’ll need to find out from them. Broadscope’s menu is located in the header.php using this bit of code:

    <?php
    /*
    * display the main navigation menu
    * modify the output in your wordpress admin backend at appearance->menus
    */
    $args = array('fallback_cb' => 'avia_fallback_menu');
    wp_nav_menu($args);
    ?>

    Thanks for the help Mya! I’ve been trying to remove the “search box” from the top right of my nav menu and your response to Q #1 got this accomplished for me… now I simply need to move the Facebook and RSS logo/links that were under the search box to the area under the search widget on the right sidebar. Where is this css coding located and what coding do I need to move it down a couple hundred pixels and to the left a bit so that it’s snug under the search widget? Thanks so much for your help on this forum! I have very minimal experience in coding yet I’ve been able to customize my entire site. Thanks again!

    oh wait, it seems that when I removed the search box coding from the searchform.php it also removed the search box I wanted to keep in the widget sidebar. Is there a way to remove the nav bar search box and to move the FB and RSS logo-links to under the search widget? Ideally I want my nav menu to stretch across the whole width of the site, not blocked by the nav search box, yet I want to keep the search-widget where it is in the sidebar, with the FB and RSS logo-links beneath it. Thanks for your time and help!

    Hi Mike,

    Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    #top #header #searchform, #top #header .social_bookmarks {
    display: none;
    }

    That will get rid of them in your header. Since at this point you’ll be using a widget for the search and social icons, I would actually suggest using a plugin here since it will give you the most flexibility in what icons to display and the actual icons used.

    Something like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-social-icons/ or by searching through the plugins here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

    Using a plugin you’ll be able to add additional social links+icons without any theme modification.

    Regards,

    Devin
