Search placeholder in various browsers

This discussion is related to the Gopi addon.

hello!

If you try a search on this forum, the search keywords are displayed only in Chrome. But Firefox and IE11, not.
I used this article to optimise search box for WordPress in diferrent browsers. Maybe you could use it also for Vanilla?

  • Not sure what you mean by optimise. This unrelated to performance.

    placeholder attribute works in most modern browsers , what is is non-standard is styling of place holder.

    Works fine in firefox. So long as it is a normal text field you can do this.

    grep is your friend.

    since the ability of the different browsers to deal with certain conditions may be different.

    maybe its a height problem with text when the custom.js adds the search box.

    try this:

    #search input[type="text"] {
     height: auto;
    }
    

    you can install this plugin. and install it and then add the lines above and save.

    yes I think it is a fon size text vs. height issue in the input field in the popup/
