Default Put a search option in the GARS forumdisplay left column?

Hi,

I was wondering if someone can help me put a straight forward "search this forum" on a GARS forumdisplay in the left column.

I copied it from the popup menu option but I guess I am missing something as the search does not work.

Here is what I am using:

Quote:
<form action="search.php?do=process" method="post">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="thead">$vbphrase[search_this_forum]<a name="goto_forumsearch"></a></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="vbmenu_option" title="nohilite">
<input type="hidden" name="s" value="$session[sessionhash]" />
<input type="hidden" name="securitytoken" value="$bbuserinfo[securitytoken]" />
<input type="hidden" name="do" value="process" />
<input type="hidden" name="forumchoice[]" value="$forumid" />
<input type="hidden" name="childforums" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="exactname" value="1" />
<div><input type="text" class="bginput" name="query" size="25" tabindex="2001" /><input type="submit" class="button" value="$vbphrase[go]" accesskey="s" tabindex="2004" /></div>
<input type="hidden" name="showposts" value="0" id="rb_fd_sp0" tabindex="2002" checked="checked" />
</td></tr></table>
</form>
Did I miss something?

Where did you place that HTML? How does it not work? Did you account for scope?

I placed it at the top of the left column within GARS_forumdisplay.

I didn't account for scope, I am just trying to put the same search function (from the "search this forum") on the left side of the screen.

I think it is because the other form is blank? If I type something in the search window and click the button, I get the following error:

"You did not select any valid threads"

Try looking at the HTML source for the page with the added search box and see if $forumid appears as a number or whether just value="" appears.

Try removing the following piece:
Code:
<input type="hidden" name="exactname" value="1" />

Try searching the vB PHP files for you_did_not_select_any_valid_threads to see what condition is/isn't being met to cause that message to appear.

There is the "Search this Category" option, for example on this page. Look for the Center Column Tools block in the GARS_forumdisplay template.
