#3927 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Search form uses ID though can appear more than once

Reported by: darrenmeehan's profile darrenmeehan Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 1.5.3
Component: Templates Keywords:


The search form found at the top of the site can be used as a widget, I'm using it in the footer of a site I'm working on to save users to hassle of scrolling back to the top to search for something.

The problem is the search box uses an id="searchform" which is being used two times, to be valid code it should be a class.Is this something worth fixing? I know I could change the theme file but I think its worth fixing in BuddyPress saving everyone the task of fixing this.

I'm just getting used to reporting bugs so I'm sorry if there's anything I'm doing wrong. This is something I think I could fix.

BuddyPress doesn't contain a search widget, and our header search box uses "search-form"; WordPress' search widget uses "searchform". Are you using a custom theme / custom widget, or have I missed something?

I had two search widgets enabled causing this. I'll report this over on the WordPress trac and see if they see it as an issue.
