After last nights debacle with the live search plugin, I tried an other one that was based on it: Live search popup. Unfortunately that one didn’t display very well in my theme, so I just removed it and won’t be offering a “Web 2.0″ search option for now.
Further changes to the Freshy2 theme and wordpress:
- I’ve added a none.gif to the background images folder, since I got loads of 404 messages about it not being in there.
- I’ve copied the default search box style (#s) from the wordpress theme and removed the “white” background color so you can see what you type when searching. Unfortunately I now need a black anti-aliased version of the search icon.
- I’ve added a header to the search widget (guess that will be gone on the next WP update from Debian, as soon as the TinyMCE maintainer updates TinyMCE). Not sure if I really want it to stay, but if I do I need to find a better way to add it.
Now I “just” need to work on the <pre> and <code> output of the theme, since reading it is not very easy at the moment.
And I found why the Live search plugin didn’t work. It uses the deprecated get_bloginfo(‘siteurl’), while it should be using get_bloginfo(‘wpurl’). But well, after having contact with the maintainer of it, I won’t be using it. He is not interested in maintaining it, so better not to use that one.
