i want to add a Searchbar to my main navigation according to the image.

so far i implemented the searchbar code and placed it in the header... but when i place the bar in the main nav i doesn't center anymore...

(the attached image is how it "should" look like .. ^^)

My guess is that it's the css that "un-centers" your search box, or its the html code.

Try this:
1) add the search box in the "navigation" div
2) edit your form.css file (towards the bottom)

#Sidebar input.action {
   font-size: 1.2em;
   float: right;
   padding: 1px;
   margin: -22px 10px 0 0;

take out the "float:right"

If that doesn't work, if you pack your theme into a rar file, I'll work on it.

I got it to work in FF and IE7. I don't have a way to test for IE6 without uploading the theme to the web.
