Sure It's a boring Sunday and it's snowing out so I decided to share some of my template mods with the group.

Hello,

Since I added this in the other modification (same thing as this) I figure I will add it here too.

This attachment explains how to give the google search its own dropmenu which gives it more attention and more revenue for you.

This is the other thread that does the same thing as this one:

Thanks for this. The reason I decided to add this to the existing search is because that's the one I think most people will use, that's just me though Additionally, I was thinking about adding this to the search dropdown in the forum and thread views as well.

hey there!
thanks for that great idea.

i wanted to add that to my boards but i came across some more requirements i also worked out. i added the function to minimize the google form and stuff like that. you can take a look at what i mean by taking a quick visit on my forums here.

here's the code if you like it:

Could be but it may be against their TOS to edit anything that isn't provided from their builder page. They are very touchy about how their ads are displayed and every day I keep reading new horror stories about people's accounts getting yanked so I try not to touch anything like that lol.

Yeah I was ++++ed up once for asking people to click on my banner. They kicked my account and I tried to argue with them. They copied & pasted their f*ckin TOS everytime. I thought I was mailing with a computer. You really have to be careful there.
Don't think that this is possible. Even if it was possible they might say anything is forbidden that changes the appearance of their banners.

They get like M$!

Yeah, even though it technically wouldn't be changing their source code, it's still an alteration to the end result.

Thanks! Great mod! My only wish would be to make the text box and button the exact same size as the vB to match (so I'm a little anal), but none the less a worthwhile mod.

When i add this code, it breaks the table? I can't figure it out where it's happening. Can someone check this?
