NC for Hire

Hi folks,

You must have seen my previous tip "Youtube Like Pagination". In addition to that, I'm going to show you how to make search bar more attractive and matching with youtube like pagination.

Simply copy and paste the following code into advanced CSS box. That's it. 

If search image link is broken, please find the attached file and download it. 

Keep adding and keep enjoying. Subscribe to tips for NCs for more.

Also you can contact me for better network customization and other ning stuff @ bernardmax@gmail.com

The Code 

<!-- SEARCH BAR CUSTOMIZATION BEGIN -->

.module_searchbar .xg_module_body {
-moz-box-shadow: inset 0 1px 5px rgba(0,0,0,0.25),0 1px 0 #fff;
-ms-box-shadow: inset 0 1px 5px rgba(0,0,0,0.25),0 1px 0 #fff;

    Hi Joan,

    Where did you paste the code? Top of all codes inside Advanced CCS? Bottom of all codes inside Advanced CCS? Just change the place and see what happens.
