There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

How can you add text in search box, on the search widget, just before the magnifer.

I want to add the text "search" in the box before the magnifier.

Change searchform.php line 5 from
PHP Code:
<input type="text" class="text inputblur" value="<?php the_search_query(); ?>" name="s" />
PHP Code:
<input type="text" class="text inputblur" 
onfocus="this.value='<?php echo (get_search_query() ? get_search_query() : '' ); ?>'" 
value="<?php echo (get_search_query() ? get_search_query() : 'DEFAULT SEARCH TEXT' ); ?>"  name="s" />
Replace DEFAULT SEARCH TEXT with your default search text, i.e. search
