    Hi

    I have just noticed that when searching using the graphene search box on my site,it shows the option to search the site or search the web. If I then search for something and click on search the site, it takes me to a separate google page that has a relevant search listings on the web, but not on my site (so have left my site). Is there something I have done wrong?

    Kind regards

    It seems you are using Google Custom search. Not the default wordpress search function.

    Hi

    Many thanks for your help. I’m not an expert, but I do not think I am using the google search. The site is http://www.autoracesponsor.co.uk. The code that is in the search form editor is:

    <form id="searchform" class="searchform" method="get" action="<?php echo get_home_url(); ?>">
    <p class="clearfix default_searchform">
    <input type="text" name="s" onblur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = '<?php _e('Search','graphene'); ?>';}" onfocus="if (this.value == '<?php _e('Search','graphene'); ?>') {this.value = '';}" value="<?php _e('Search','graphene'); ?>" />
    <button type="submit"><span><?php _e('Search', 'graphene'); ?></span></button>
    </p>
    <?php do_action('graphene_search_form'); ?>
    </form>

    Still not sure what to do

    Kind regards

    Hmmm.. Where the search box is located in your site?

    (Please put your code between backticks in this forum. I’ve added them in your previous comment)

    Sorry I had taken the search box off. I have now put it back. I have since discovered that there appears to some sort of problem with something called widdit. When I inspect the element I find this in it. But it does not appear in the code as per the code I submitted in my last post. I am worried about what widdit is?

    Search function in your site looks fine in firefox and Chromium browsers here.

    ….some sort of problem with something called widdit

    widdit seems to be some sort of script or plugin. Deactivate/remove it if you’ve installed it recently.

    Many thanks. Seems therefore the problem is with my machine. I am pretty sure though that Widdit has caused the problem, and I suspect it has got into my PC without me knowing. I cannot find it anywhere – I suppose it is hiding. Its purpose seems to be to hijack the search and send the searcher to adware relared sites.

    Anyway, really appreciate your help

    Kind regards

    Hmm.. Not the solution for your problem. But, try to use an open source OS like Linux.
