    Does anyone knows how to expand the VBA Links Search Box so it's the same size as Forum/Blog Search? (see the image in the 1st thread)

    Either add 'width="100"' to your main table there, or remove the <table> and just use the module wrapper template.

    I just tried it both the ways you suggested, removing the table and adding width="100", but neither one works for me. The vba links search box stays the same size (smaller than the other boxes).

    I've looked at examples of other search boxes and they don't have a table. I know you are right, yet it still doesn't work for me. I am perplexed. It's got to be simple, but I can't figure out what I'm missing.

    It appears that it only happens when I add GTSearch: Google™ Custom Search Engine (which is something I should ask them about). I attached the image below so you can see how it's not sized right.

    If I remove the GT Search, the VBA Links Search shows up fine. I just can't figure out what is different with the Blog and Forums search that allows it to re-size, while the VBA Links Search can not.

    Oh well, it works perfect as long as that GT Search is not installed.

    It would appear that this has been implemented already in v3.0 Gold? Can someone confirm?

    Yes, there is a default setting now that will allow you to display a search box.
