  1. They are great, but I noticed one problem: The search box is not clickable. I had to hit “enter” on the keyboard to get results! I tried Style 5.

  2. Wow, very cool search box, you’ve just done a great tutorial for those who used blogger.com Keep sharing :)

  3. Really cool search box. Can you please give some tips on making a custom subscription box for blogspot blogs..??

  4. Cool search boxes, but unfortunately I’m WP user and I’m using Google search box on my blog. Good effort anyway.

    1. Hi Raj,
