    Thanks for this great post! I installed this box and it put the search box at the top left of the header. How can I move it to the bottom right of the header? Also, I want the search results to pop up on a separate page. Where do put the second code from Google to have them show on a separate page? Thanks for all your help!

      Ok, I figured out how to move it. I have another question now though.. 🙂

      Is there any way to get rid of the blue magnifiying glass so that only the search box is displayed?

      At the time of look and feel section, you gave one page url, paste the second code in that page HTMl section.

    I am also trying to figure out where to put my second code. What do you mean “look ad feel” section? I am pretty sure I don’t have one of those…
