Blogger Search fails

Recently I ran into a problem where my search bar on  the side of my blog failed to return results. No matter the search the blog returned “No Results”. It turns out this has been a repeating problem on blogger and I would not have even noticed it had I not been looking for an older post I created.

Luckily there is a work around.
1. Add a gadget to your blog.

2. Choose “Html/javascript”

3. Enter in the content

“<form action="/search" name="input" method="get">
<input value=" " name="q" size="20" type="text"/>
<input value="Search!" type="submit"/>
</form>”

Save

4. Save Arrangement and view your site

You’ll once again have a working search box
